"Sexy Ester" to represent Madison in Bandswap

August 7, 2013

The Madison Arts Commission is pleased to announce that "Sexy Ester" has been chosen to represent Madison for the 2013 SpokesBUZZ Bandswap.

Sexy Ester was nominated and chosen based on qualities such as musicianship, creativity, showmanship, professional dedication, career aptitude, social marketing savvy, collaborative spirit, availability, and fit. "Sexy Ester," now in its fourth year of existence, is a high energy new wave rock band. Fronted by honey-voiced Lyndsay Evans, and backed by Adam Edar on guitar, Jenna Joanis on drums, Brad Schubert on bass, and Roscoe Evans on keyboards, "Sexy Ester" is a Madison favorite. They have won several Madison Area Music Awards (MAMA) over the last couple of years including Artist of the Year in 2012 and Female vocalist of the Year in 2011, 2012, and 2013. "Sexy Ester" wowed the crowd performing at this year's Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards where they were nominated for Pop/Rock Artist of the Year.

When asked if they could accept the nomination, singer Lyndsay Evans wrote, "'Sexy Ester' loves Madison and all our Sexy fans and we would be honored to represent Madison in Bandswap."

SpokesBUZZ, the Fort Collins nonprofit organizer of Bandswap, selected "Common Anomaly" to travel to Madison to appear with "Sexy Ester" at the High Noon Saloon on Sunday, September 22, 2013.

Two weeks later, "Sexy Ester" will travel to Fort Collins to perform with bands representing all eight cities in an incredible weekend of music.

The Madison Arts Commission would like to congratulate "Sexy Ester" and thank sponsors New Belgium Brewing, Majestic Live, Wisconsin Distributors, and the High Noon Saloon for making Madison's participation in 2013 SpokesBUZZ Bandswap.
