The event was held at the Birmingham NEC and was sponsored by Guitarist Magazine. In the years since he became top 3 in the International Guitar Idol contest (held in London), began recording tuition video’s with the renowned Lick Library (licklibrary.com) and began transitioning into lead vocals with the band. With great sadness, Jas and Dan’s father passed away suddenly in 2010. The boys decided to keep the band going, called Rude Tiger at the time. In a few short years since have toured Europe, supported many bands including Feeder, Reef, Toploader, Calvin Harris, Texas, Eliza Doolittle, Tinie Tempah and many more. Along with a band name change to Firekind, Jas travelled over to Los Angeles to record with legendary producer Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Chris Cornell) and shortly after Thailand where the band competed in the Global Battle Of The Bands competition (www.gbob.com) and walked away being crowned the Best Band in the World.
