Battle of the Bands – Heat 2

The Bradbury hotel was again the location for Macarthur Music on a Mission’s Battle of the Bands.  There was another good crowd on hand to watch/listen to the battle and raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the same time.

There were only three bands performing on the night has there had been a late withdrawal.  The first band to perform were the energetic Liberty Guns from Wollongong that was comprised of Lachlan Shelley on Guitar and Vocals, Steven Gale on Bass and Daniel Eliot on Drums and Vocals.  You can keep up with their gigs by liking their Liberty Gun’s Facebook page.

The next band to perform and the winners for the night were The Dirty Reeds a Punk Rock Pop band from Catherine Fields.  As two members of the band were not available on the night so Alex Reid was joined by Jake Elder on the drums and Adam Reid on the bass. It was the first live gig for Adam Reid and the first time that they had played together so they did extremely well to win on the night. Keep up to date on what is happening with them by liking the Dirty Reeds Facebook Page.

Heat 3 will be on Friday 17th July, 2015 at:

The Bradbury

96 Parkway Drive, Bradbury

Battle of the Bands – Heat 1

I was asked by a friend,  Andrea Krakovská if I could come along and shoot the Battle of the Bands at the Bradbury Hotel.   Andrea is passionate about music as she is a  member of a band herself and felt that there wasn’t enough live music venues in the Macarthur region.  To try and rectify this she decided to form Macarthur Music on a Mission to create the Battle of the Bands which will be held at The Bradbury Hotel.  Not only is this raising awareness of the need for livemusic venues in the Macarthur Region but all money raised will be used to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The first heat as was a great success and a good crowd was at The Bradbury to see The Last Exposure, The Dark Raven, Handheld Human and Acid Birth.

I think the judges hard a hard decision to make but the eventual winner on the night was Handheld Human.
