As we come in to the quarter finals of this epic competition, We’re seeing the competing bands really up their game. The one thing we really love about this competition is not just the competitive spirit of the bands, but the networking. We’re increasingly seeing support for each other and some even going as far to organise gigs and tours with one another.  To us, this is as important as winning the main £1,000 prize.   Other bands have secured radio play and shout outs from various industry judges.  One thing we must remember, is that this industry is tough enough for an up and coming band to crack.  So what we’re saying, in a nutshell, is support this competition, support original music. Wherever you find it.  The biggest bands in the world played a Battle of the Bands competition at a 300 cap venue once upon a time.
