On Thursday, we set up our stage in the PAC to record our two senior bands play two original songs each in the hopes that they'll advance to the next round of Rockquest.
Usually students would play to a live audience, but due to COVID-19, plans changed, and students instead are to submit two original songs within a 7-minute time frame. Taking to the stage, we had 'Lemon, Lime and Lizards' (Jake Wright, Matt Boyle, Lachie Williams, Ethan Seed and Sam Turner) and 'Lifetime Guarantee' (Harry Smith, Sasha Uhrbom, Sam Doherty). Both bands have produced high quality submissions and have displayed some amazing musicianship! We still have a few more bands to record after the holidays, we can't wait to see what they produce.
The Rockquest judges will then pick their favourite submissions to advance to the next stage, fingers crossed we're a part of that list!
A massive thank you to Harrison Tyson and Andrew Grant for setting up the stage and recording the audio for us! Your hard work and dedication is incredible.
