The band competition wasn't conducted very well.

Jessica was very good but her performance belonged more in a singer songwriter competition. The other bands performed more like "bands"

Also the sound out front wasn't on in the beginning of the show.

I thought that the Herl brothers and Jessica Kilroy were phenomenal. Their stage presence, songwriting and performance, highly outweighed their competition. I was also really impressed with their professional stage dress- although the other bands all did a great job too (especially the Urban Monroes and Loose Digits), I noticed they were all casually dressed. Good job to all of the bands for competing and congrats to Jessica Kilroy and the Herl Brothers.

FANTASTIC! Folks - if you ever get a chance to witness the talents of this REMARKABLE young song writer and performer, do yourself a huge favor and DON'T MISS IT! Jessica - my hopes and well wishes for you to go far and reach the masses. They deserve the treat of your talents. I can hardly wait for NW String Summit 2009, or a chance to see and hear you again sooner!

I would have to agree that Jessica is really good but I also have to agree that the other bands were more suited to the band competition setting.
NW STring Summit is a hippie fest of dreads,tie dye shirts and jam bands and is very casual indeed.

Jessica did seem like more of a singer songwriter than a band. Maybe in the future they can include a songwriter competition and have that separate from the regular band competition.
