GALLERY: CQ students erupt in music battle

STUDENTS from all over Central Queensland were tuning their guitars, preparing their voices and polishing their performances for the biggest school band event of the year earlier this month.

On September 2, bands from all over the region battled it out in the sixth annual Battle of the Bands performance at the Pilbeam Theatre.

The talented high-school students rocked it out to some epic tunes but the The Rockhampton Grammar School's Bin Chickens took out the crown.

Catch 22 from Heights College scored runner-up and The Remedy from Emmaus College and Yeppoon High School placed third.

A panel of guest judges chose The Blazing Titans from The Cathedral College as the worthy recipient of the encouragement award.

Event coordinator Sarah Hicks said the event brought together students from all walks of life and she felt privileged to provide this opportunity for them to share their passion.

"We believe the most valuable returns are in the community spirit and friendships that are built backstage amongst these amazing young people” she said.
