City of Madison Recognizes Sexy Ester

The Tuesday night meeting of the Madison Common Council got a lot more hip when they invited Sexy Ester in to accept a proclamation thanking them for representing the City of Madison at the recent BandSwap event.
BandSwap is a project of SpokesBuzz out of Fort Collins, Colorado. Eight cities were chosen to participate and bands from Fort Collins travelled to each city. Common Anomaly performed here at the High Noon Saloon and Sexy Ester returned the favor by performing at the BandSwap festival in Fort Collins earlier this month.
Sexy Ester were obviously jazzed to be a part of BandSwap. “It’s a great thing that SpokesBuzz is doing with BandSwap and we are so excited that Madison has gotten involved and grateful for the opportunity,” says Sexy Ester vocalist Lyndsay Evans. “It was awesome to get a taste of the road and gain new Sexy fans outside of the Midwest. We were able to network and make new connections with other bands and music industry people around the country. And the press behind BandSwap is great for our Electronic Press Kit!”
It’s great to see the Mayor and the City make efforts to get more involved in Madison Music. I promise you, there are some big announcements forthcoming. Change is coming to Madison (can I use that?).
The Common Council resolution concludes:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Mayor and the City of Madison recognize the importance of promoting and sharing Madison’s local music scene, encouraging professional development opportunities for our emerging talent, acknowledging Madison’s music industry for the role it plays in making Madison a cultural destination and for helping to grow our economy; and
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the Mayor and the City of Madison thank the members of the music and entertainment industry who brought BandSwap to Madison and thank “Sexy Ester” for representing Madison’s vibrant music scene in BandSwap 2013.
