Beloved local rocker Jabe Beyer bested some seriously talented folks--including Corin Ashley and Sarah Borges--this week to win the NEMO Music Makers competition presented by Starbucks New England.
The grand prize finalist scores a trip to the Kauai Music Festival, a prime showcase slot at NEMO and one year’s supply of Starbucks coffee.
Jabe plays the Abbey Lounge Saturday September 30 at 12:15 am.
Congrats to Jabe!
(And to the other contestants, don't feel too bad, you no doubt had a great gig and now you have a connection for free coffee for months!)
