The Band ISUA Won the Fourth Duel of the “Urquell of Talents” Contest

8 August 2013

Plzeň, August 7, 2013 – The fourth match of the Urquell of Talents contest produced another winning name on Thursday, August 1. It is a Pilsen band called ISUA that has beaten its Liberec competition band EXIL 51 and is now advancing to the finals. The prize for the ultimate winner is 20.000 CZK (about 1,000.00 USD), free beer for a year, and a unique opportunity to perform as a part of the main programme at Pilsner Fest in October. The final winner of the Urquell of talents contest will be selected by fans in public voting at www.pilsnerfest.cz. Miss Michaela Němcová, from Zruč,  was nominated for the Czech Republic Championship in double-stein holding. The next concert will take place this coming Thursday. The band Odyssea is the main guest of the evening.

Five musicians from Pilsen formed the band ISUA only in 2011. However they already have more than one success under their belts – this year, for example, they won at Expedition Přeštěnice 2013 where they competed among 120 young, talented bands. The combination of alternative rock and pop performed by female lead singer Giudi, Jakub on drums, and Ruda, Tom, and Gali on guitars made an impact on the audience once again.

In the all-female round, Miss Michaela Němcová from Zruč advanced to the finals of the traditional Czech Republic championship in double-stein holding with outstretched arms that will take place during the Pilsen fest on October 5, 2013. Next to secured participation in the finals, the happy winner took home with her a carton of beer. During Thursday evenings, those interested may participate in other contests such as “Take as much beer as you can grab.”

This upcoming Thursday, you can look forward to the performance of the veterans from the popular, entertaining band of the seventies and eighties, Odyssea, and yet another music duel between the bands Citylights and FANFAN. Fans may pick the winner during the concert on site using the voting vouchers or during the next seven days online at www.pilsnerfest.cz.

 

*Pilsner Fest is a traditional celebration of Pilsen beer that will take place in the courtyard of the Pilsen brewery on October 5th of this year. You can find more information about the festival of music and Pilsen Urquell beer at www.pilsnerfest.cz.
