German fashion brand S.Oliver has chosen Munich-based rock band Blind Freddy as the winner of the S.Oliver Band Contest, with first prize consisting of a performance at June's rock music festival Rock am Ring. After the final show on May 19, a jury and 2,377 user votes determined that Blind Freddy was the winner. The band has been on a promotional tour through eight cities called S.Oliver Roadshows since April with Vine-Yard and Between Borders, from the Netherlands and Duesseldorf, respectively. Blind Freddy happily enthused, “It's totally insane that we won, we can't believe it at all. We thank our fans, who have so diligently voted for us and have never stopped believing in us. We'll never forget this and are looking forward to our performance at Rock am Ring.”
