This event was a complete sell out (over 400 in our audience), with 25 bands competing for the winner’s prize.
The event followed a successful Rock School day on the 28/1/16 where tutors from Ricky’s Rock School spent the day at the CMSS/NLC High, working with all the bands to prepare them for the event. On this day we were also joined by 20 students from Westborough High School in Dewsbury, who came along to develop their ensemble performance skills with CMSS subject coaches ready for their GCSE exams, as well as be trained how to use our state of the art recording studio.
The Battle of the Bands was wont by Drop the Bass in Year 11, and up and coming band comprising of GCSE music students. Our judge’s panel was again led by Ricky Comiskey of Ricky’s Rock School, who on the night was impressed with the incredibly high standard of playing by all who took part.
