A Derry band have been given the Bill Cullen seal of approval on TV3s The Apprentice and are set to feature on a CD giveaway by the Irish Daily Mail this weekend.
Although it was more a case of ‘You’re hired’ than ‘You’re fired’ for local musicians MojoGogo last week.
The band have been selected for inclusion on the free ‘As seen on The Apprentice’ CD which featured heavily on last week’s episode of the hit reality show.
In the second instalment of The Apprentice, candidates created a compilation CD, showcasing some of Ireland up-and-coming artists, for The Irish Daily Mail. Local band Mojo Gogo had track ‘This isn’t love’ selected for inclusion.
A mere twenty bands have been given the chance to have their music brought to a wider audience and what better way than by featuring on TV3’s biggest show.
The unsigned band now feature on CD for the first time.
The Apprentice team of judges presided over hundreds of demos and whittled them down to a final forty. It was then up to Team Spirit and Team Zest to decide which bands would make the cut and have their track featured on the compilation.
Both teams are also tasked with designing the CD artwork, a full page ad for the newspaper and an accompanying marketing plan.
Each disc contains one track from ten different bands and 100,000 copies of the winning team’s CD will be given away free with the Irish Daily Mail this Saturday October 22.
Mojo Gogo hail from Derry, Dungloe and Killybegs.
The band are to launch their first signal ‘Trigger’ at Sandinos bar on November 17.
Admission is free, doors open at 9pm and support on the evening comes from Intermission.
