Cobo Bay Gig 2019

For Those About To Rock…

It’s hard to believe, but we are almost at the end of this year’s run of Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs – and what a fantastic season of music and memories it has been. The final JT-sponsored gig will be on Sunday 25 August, headlined by a tribute to legendary rockers AC/DC, who are guaranteed to get the party started and bring the family-friendly gigs to a close in style. They will be supported popular French band ‘Sons of the Desert’.

Over the course of summer, the popular free gigs have been attended by many hundreds of islanders and tourists alike who have been treated to both great weather and great acts, including tributes to Ed Sheeran and the ever-popular Fleetwood Mac. Many talented and popular Guernsey bands have also joined the line-up, impressing the balcony gig crowds since May.

The six gigs have, as in previous years, raised money for two very worthy causes the Guernsey Cheshire Homes and JT’s chosen charity for 2019, the GSPCA. All have been supported by the friendly JT team who have been on hand with plenty of smiles, exclusive offers, bio-degradable and re-useable freebies at every event.

Tamara O’Brien, JT’s Deputy Managing Director in Guernsey, said the feedback from the events had been excellent. “What a great summer it has been, this year’s line-up has been stronger than ever, and the great British weather didn’t let us down. This is the eighth year we have supported the Cobo Bay Summer Balcony gigs and it’s been a pleasure to help bring such a selection of quality live acts to Guernsey and showcase some of the best talent this Island has to offer. As always, given the beautiful location that these events take place in, we would ask islanders attending to collect and take home their rubbish and leave Cobo Bay litter free.”

“Our team will be on hand to help make sure this final gig really rocks and will be handing out exclusive news about our new ‘JT Rewards Guernsey’ which due to popular demand will launch in September, offering fantastic daily deals and savings for islanders with many local businesses from meals out, overnight stays, household equipment, leading brands and much, much more already signed up.

David Nussbaumer, organiser of the Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs said: “Once again it has been a successful summer of music at Cobo Bay thanks to the ongoing partnership and support of JT which has helped us secure quality acts for these really popular events. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible at the last gig of the summer as we say goodbye to the 2019 Balcony Gig series.”

JT Pool Party AUG19

Loading on the summer fun at the Lido!

There’s no better way to spend a summer afternoon than with a free pool party and no better location than the iconic Lido at Havre des Pas for a fantastic fun-filled family day out.

JT is helping islanders making the most of the sunshine this August and will host a family pool party, stacked with music, ice cream and – what every pool party needs – giant inflatables on Saturday 10 August between 11am and 3pm.

No party would be complete without music and local DJ Stefan Rousseau will get everyone in the mood with a mix of soul, funk and everyone’s favourite summer throwbacks, making sure the party is one of this year’s biggest summer memories.

“I am really looking forward to playing a tropical and summery soundtrack while everyone has fun in this amazing location,” says DJ Stefunk.

The venue holds 300 people who will also have exclusive access to the balcony at Havre de Pas, giving the whole event a VIP vibe.

The JT team will be there with the ever-popular JT Tiki Hut throughout the afternoon giving away plenty of bio-degradable and reusable freebies for party-goers, including sunglasses, buckets, spades and beach balls and welcoming the first 150 partygoers with a free ice cream.

Just to add to the feel-good factor, the event will support the JSPCA, JT’s chosen charity for 2019 and we will also be running an Instagram competition on the day to win the latest beach tech.  To enter, partygoers need to upload their pool party pictures using the hashtag #JTPoolParty and the best photos will be selected to win a Boompod waterproof speaker.

Tamara O’Brien, JT ‘s Head of Customer Experience, said: “As pool party venues go, it doesn’t get better than the iconic Lido at Havre des Pas. There’s room to chill out, play and party and make the most of Jersey beach life in a safe environment. A community summer party is a great opportunity to bring people together for a bit of fun and sunshine and we look forward to welcoming 300 people to join us, so come down early to find your picnic spot and grab an ice cream!”
