Months of speculation came down to one big announcement Monday night when the top two talents of the Kosciusko’s Got Talent contest were announced during the open ceremony of the Kosciusko County Community Fair.
Over 35 entries were received in our talent contest, but only two emerged on top as voted on by our readers.
Winning the contest, and the $1,000 prize, was Plaxton & The Void, an acoustic Indie rock group made up of Dave McCall, bass; Josh Jacoby (aka The Void), guitar; Joel Squires (aka Plaxton), vocals and guitar; and Tom Wagoner, drums and percussion. Their winning entry can be seen HERE.
The band plans to use their prize money to pay for some creative work and additional CDs and/or equipment.
Separated only by 15 votes, the runner-up was the Guy Franklin Band, a Christian hard rock group comprised of Frankie Gump, vocals and guitar; Kevin Kyle, lead guitars; Mario Young, bass guitar; and Brandon Bussard, drums. Their winner entry can be seen HERE.
In claiming the top prize of $1,000, Plaxton & The Void have been gifted a spot in the Jay County Chamber of Commerce “Stars in the Park” contest by special invitation. There, Plaxton & The Void will now compete for an additional $1,250 prize.
