Dana Jennejohn and The Bennett Sun made the national round in the 2015 CBC Searchlight competition. We were thrilled!

We were one of 23 regional finalists and have our listeners and fans to thank. Thank you so much for your support – we loved hearing from old friends and making new ones as the contest went along. We were honoured to share the stage with so many great Yukon bands and learn about new musical acts from across the country.

We didn’t make the national top ten in Searchlight but are thrilled that we got as far as we did. The best part was feeling the support of our community, friends and family and being able to share our music with people who may not otherwise have heard it. Thank you everyone for all your daily votes and support! Also check out the great bands that made the top ten…definitely worth a listen.

Thanks to the great work of our blood-grass band friends, Murder Murder, we have a sweet CD we’d like to give to everyone who voted as our thank you for your support in this year’s Searchlight Contest. Contact your preferred Bennett Sun band member or message us on Facebook to arrange for a pick up.

We feel thankful to have music in our lives and to be able to share it.

Love, The Bennett Sun
