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.
