Call for Legends Live
Yesterday the winners of Shure's Call For Legends were announced. After over twelve weeks searching for their legends, members of the Montreux Jazz Festival, the band Blossoms and Shure themselves have meticulously scrutinized over 500 bands to select a winner; including two runners up. The competition ran from September right up until December last year. Bands who entered the competition were required to be based in one the EMEA regions(Europe, the Middle East, or Africa) and were expected to be extremely passionate about performing.

To exemplify their passion within a live environment, the bands were required to upload a video of themselves performing to an audience. The group that would be chosen as the winners would be entitled to over 5000 euros worth of Shure Gear whereas 2nd and 3rd place runners up would be given 3000 euros and 1000 euro worth of equipment respectively.

The winner of Shure's Call for Legends were a jazz/soul/funk infused outfit from Bordeaux, France. The Lehmanns Brothers have been performing as a band since 2013 and list an extensive collection of influences to their signature sound , including Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley. With their four-track-EP 'Dreams & Nightmares' that was released in 2015, the band have since accumulated a loyal and enthusiastic following.

The runners up in third place were the French band Shiivah, who exhibit a thrilling combination of musical styles that lend to a unique and exciting sound. In second place came Scottish new wave act 100 Fables who were "born from a shared love of the new wave movement and their passion for the 80's new wave and post punk electro soul".

In accordance with The Lehmann Brothers recent victory, the band will now receive 5,000 euros worth of Shure equipment and perform live in Montreux in July 2017.

Speaking of their triumph in the Call for Legends competition Julien Anglade of The Lehmanns Brothers stated:

" We are so excited about this great opportunity and would like to thank Shure and the Montreux Jazz Festival for making our dreams come true. But of course we wouldn't have been that successful without the great support of our fans and their votes. Thanks to all who believed in us and and-rendez-vous in Montreux! "
