(Leeds City Council News) Local bands needed for south Leeds battle

The South Leeds Youth Hub in Middleton is on the look-out for up and coming young bands to take part in a musical battle next month.

The hub is organising a ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition on Saturday 15 February, 2-6pm for young people aged 12 to 19 years old.

The winners will receive free studio time with technical support to record their first professional demo in the youth hub’s state of the art music studio. The battle will be judged by local musicians Guy Thomas from Wakefield band, Thomas Wilby Gang and Shane Joy from Ryder. We are also looking for another guest judge for the day.

The show will be headlined by local band ‘The World keeps’ and feature a non-alcoholic bar, health information and freebies.

Councillor Judith Blake, executive member responsible for children’s services said:

“This is a great opportunity for some up a coming young talent to perform in front of a live audience and get the chance to use the fantastic music studio at the youth hub.

“The hub is a fantastic facility for young people across all of south Leeds so if you’ve not been there, come along to see the show and find out what you’re missing!”

Tickets are available for just £1 for people who want to watch the show and the entry fee for bands is £5.
