SUCCESS AT BANDQUEST FOR BLUESTONE
We had 3 amazing bands competing in Band Quest at the Aurora Auditorium in Christchurch against the best from Canterbury. Our bands each performed two original songs. The quality of competition on the night was totally amazing and the great news is that our 3 bands were certainly up there with the best of them. We won two major prizes. Neve O'Connor won top female vocalist. Renee Kerr and Neve O'Connor wrote the Best Original Song and they performed this along with their band (THE PEOPLE) Shayle Haumu (drums), Jordan Harvey and Jasmyne Dromgool (Bass guitars).
Our two other bands also impressed the big audience.
