JESSICA Flamank was expected to rock it out in front of hundreds on the keyboard today.

Jess is part of the band, Hectic Neckbeards that was set to perform at Rockhampton State High School's Battle of the Bands.

The band was one of many acts that had to audition for a place in the competition.

Jess, 16, said she joined the Hectic Neckbeards this year, and is excited to hit the stage with them.

It's not just bands that have a chance to show off their musical skills, solo singers will be taking the stage as well.

Kaylee Whitmore will be looking to win the competition with her smooth vocals.

The Year 12 student has sung in the competition before with bands, but it's the first time she'll be singing on her own with an accompaniment.

Kaylee, who's a self-taught singer, has been belting out tunes since she was in primary school and is hoping winning the battle of the bands will get her through to an even bigger competition.

The first and second placed acts will get to perform in the CQ All Schools Battle of the Bands at the end of August.

This will see bands and singers from 10 schools from across the region go head to head in the singing competition today.

Local artists The Short Fall and Kate Trennary will be guest judges.
