This summer, Gulf Coast Entertainment has two interns from the St. John’s School, Lindsay Frankfort and Bo Farnell. Lindsay and Bo both applied to intern at GCE because of their shared love of music. After meeting Bo and Lindsay at the Clint Black fundraiser, we were shocked and excited to find out that Bo and Lindsay are actually bandmates! The two of them are members of the band they founded, Claremont Heir. Lindsay is the lead singer and Bo is the lead guitarist.
Bo and Lindsay, along with their three other bandmates Lily Pesikoff, Dair McFarland, and Michael Skaribas, performed for the first time together at their 8th grade graduation in 2018. Now, the five members of Claremont Heir are rising seniors at St. John’s (‘22). Over the past 4 years, Claremont Heir has had several gigs including performances at White Oak Music Hall, Avenida Houston, The Contemporary Arts Museum, Evelyn’s Park Music Festival, and Darwin’s Pub. Claremont Heir has also been interviewed by their school newspaper, The Review, and has performed at numerous school events and school parties.
This past Sunday, June 6th, Claremont Heir had their first gig in over a year at 8th Wonder Brewery. Over 60 people including friends, family, teachers, the Baylor College of Medicine MD Ph.D. program students, and even strangers attended and one random person even tipped the band $20. How cool is that?! Bo and Lindsay absolutely rocked out on stage and had an incredible time. The energy was high, the atmosphere was fun, and the music was great!
