The Hunter School’s Rock Off battle of the bands is back again for another year. This will be the 3rd year of this fantastic event and we can’t wait to see the line-up!
The comp is open to bands duos and soloists who attend high school in Cessnock, Kurri Kurri, Singleton, Muswellbrook, Lochinvar, Rutherford, Newcastle, Port Stephens, Lake Macquarie, Maitland or Dungog.
Each act will be given a 20 minute set to show off their talents. The organisers say that while acts will be permitted to perform cover versions of songs during their set, they must have at least two originals to be eligible for judging.
Judges will be looking for the originality of the material the acts present, their musicianship, the way the acts conduct themselves on stage, audience response and the viability of recording the songs the acts play.
