The Court Jesters!

 Introducing you to The Court Jesters!
A high energy, fun combo filled with harmonies and dynamic chops!
We take songs from Motown, Pop, Soul, Rock and what the hell, Country too, and then we blend and blur those lines to create a musical genre I like to call MoPoSoRo and Co!
It's fun with many a shenanigan but backed up by years of experience and professionalism you really wouldn't believe !
Unless you saw and heard it with your own eyes .....
Challenge extended!! 
The Court Jesters - Two voices and One Guitar!
And , That is all you need !
Tina Charest has one of the most powerful and beautiful voices you could ever wish to hear, combine that with John's Passion fuelled guitar playing and vocal harmonies, and hey presto, Duo magic created!
Don't just take my wordfor it, here are some testimonials from people, don't check with them though.....

David Copperfield - "Yes it's magic"
Elvis Presely - "I wish I wasn't so dead, they sound pretty good "
William Shatner - " I have trek-ed all around, and they are the best "
John Cleese - " Stop that! Its getting silly now "

X's & O's - Elle King
It T'was a cold and grey evening on the 22nd April 2017 when The Court Jesters made there way to Damariscotta.....
The locals were in fine fettle, luckily we were too . The mood was one of fun and fresh from a game of Tic Tac Toe, a man called Stan called out for this fine tune....
We duly obliged...
