NewVIc’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ draws huge crowds

One of the student bands performing at NewVIc

A packed audience filled the dimly lit music performance theatre on 18 January, the air of anticipation and excitement was palpable.

Student bands Elite 6 and S.O.U.N.D. were introduced by the MC. The musicians confidently strode onto the stage, and performed a number of tracks – many original - inspired by the work of Brian Eno and Run DMC. Singers and rappers held the audience in their hands whilst supported by a guitarist, keyboard player and percussionists.

From the deafening applause and cheering it was impossible to tell which band won the day, but their entertainment value and talent shone through and left everyone feeling uplifted and inspired. Both bands have great futures ahead of them.
