And, yes, we do mean NOW! Quality Street are down to the last few hours (just over 2 1/2 hours) in their battle to get to the next round of the Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2013. There’s a very strong club connection here. Martin Farragher and Michael Ansbro both play with the club and have done so for many years.

Let’s play our part now to help them over the line. They’re currently leading but many’s a game was lost in the closing minutes. Let’s make sure we do our bit to push them home – just go to the link below and give them 5 stars, Like the song, Tweet it, and add a comment under the video: http://www.redbullbedroomjam.ie/2013-band/quality-street/ It is important to add that link to all your Tweets, Facebook comments etc.
