"This Tipp band are going to the top" - (Joe.ie)
Playing in some of Ireland's coolest venues and clocking up some ground support along the way, Jester are a 5 piece band who “know how to take a song on the town & show it a good time” - ( Hotpress Magazine)
As a band Jester are both heavy rock and punky pop, which creates an interesting sound which I have no doubt will become Jester’s own signature sound.
"They are re-inventing that gritty yet danceable rock and soul sound which was originally coined by groups like The Cure and re-inventing it..."
"With Jester, rock music has just gotten a little more chic. Skinny jeans are loosening up, and vocalists are going back to their grittier and more soulful roots, rather than just yelling ad nauseum..."
"Infectious Irish rock outfit ‘JESTER’ create melodious, ambient and powerful rock tunes..."
On the live front Jester have shared the stage with top acts Including:The Fun Lovin Criminals, Cast, The Blizzards, The republic Of Loose, Aslan, Paddy Casey, Mick Flannery.
Festivals appearances include: Cois Farraige Festival, Oxegen ('07) and The Sea Sessions Festivals in 2009 and 2010.
A high point of 2009 for Jester was storming to victory at the prestigious Sea Sessions Irish Unsigned Act Competition in June.
2017 sees Jester return with a brand new single "Little Run Down" .
Previous single "Sea Saw" featured on Today Fm's Dermot & Dave show as one of their Homegrown Heros, and 2nd single "The Reason" featured as a daily download on Today FM's Louise Duffy show.
Jester are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album which will be released towards the end of 2017. In the meantime JESTER will be pushing everyone out of their way to bring their brand of gritty rock anthems to the masses. Nothing less is acceptable
