A local band is in with a chance of picking up a €5,000 prize after being named among the semi-finalists of a jingle competition on Today FM.

Jason Nertney and Ruairi Carthy, performing under the name Top Shelf, submitted one of hundreds of entries to the Le Crunch Apples 7G jingle competition, and their entry, ‘Apples & Bananjos’ impressed the judges, seeing them included in the top ten line-up.

“We’re surprised and honoured to be picked for it,” Jason commented. “We just entered it for a bit of fun after Ruairi heard about it on the radio and weren’t really expecting it to go anywhere.

“We’ve been playing together for years in pubs, but it’s great to do something different, so hopefully everyone will get out and vote!”

You can vote for Top Shelf’s entry by visiting the Le Crunch Apple website at www.ouitolecrunch.com. Voting is open until midnight tomorrow, Friday, March 19.

The five finalists will go on to compete for the €5,000 prize at the Today FM studios on Friday, March 27.
