Jump The Shark Celebrate Brit Award Win With Hometown Show

The judges picked up from their sound elements of Tame Impala, Primal Scream and Hendrix – music that along with The Beatles, the Stone Roses, The Smiths, Pink Floyd and more recently Pond have certainly influenced the young band.
Jump The Shark have playing music together, in various bands, since 2010 after meeting through a Zip Theatre Rock School workshop and school. They are currently all in sixth form and college currently working on A levels.
The band were overwhelmed with the amazing reception they received at the competition and delighted to win the prize package which includes a young Brit award, a recording session at the famous Abbey Road Studios and one of their songs to be featured on next year’s Brit award compilation.
As if that wasn’t enough the band were also lucky enough to be invited to attend this year’s Brit Award ceremony.
