Sean has been a judge since 2017
Bitter Jester Music Festival Judge
Sean has been the Sax player and a vocalist with his band, The Ska-lers, since 2010. He is a north suburban-based musician and, on April 12, 2016, was sworn in as a Paid-on-Call Firefighter/EMT with the Northbrook, IL Fire Department. Sean paid his way through the firefighting academy while working construction. On construction sites, he said, "they fire nail guns at you. The worst they can do [in the fire service] is yell at you." Sean also works as a part time Firefighter with the Antioch, IL Fire Department.
He is most well known musically, however, for his work in The Ska-lers, which – according to him – is the world's greatest ska band.
