IT'S time to rock.

Bands from schools across the region will hit the stage tonight and belt out their top songs in the CQ Battle of the Bands.

Broccoli Forest and The Regae All Stars are two of the bands from St Brendan's College that will be taking the stage.

The school's director of Culture and Special Events Aaron Jorgensen said the bands were roaring to go.

"We've picked out two bands in Year 12, and they all play together at school functions and in the community," Mr Jorgensen said.

Broccoli Forest will perform Bastille's Pompeii while The Regae All Stars will bring some Bob Marley and Peter Andre to the competition.

THE EVENT

CQ Battle of the Bands

Tonight (6.30pm)

St Brendan's College Chapel, Yeppoon (enter via gate 1)

Free admission

Mr Jorgensen said that most bands would play an original song as well.

While the competition is all about the singing, Mr Jorgensen said it was great to see schools in the region come together.

"The best part is the backstage conversation that happens, with kids from our bands talking to other schools and making new friends," Mr Jorgensen said.

"It's not a fierce competition; it's good for students to hear the judge's feedback."

The bands will be out to impress the likes of The Short Fall who will be one of the judges. The Rockhampton band has plenty of experience, having just released their second EP and playing gigs around Queensland.

Mr Jorgensen said the students competing have been playing instruments and singing for most of their lives and are excited to perform in front of their peers.
