We had lots of fun at Battle of the Bands this afternoon and that was the advice from our judges - Dave Brooking (drummer) and Simeon Carter-Dillon (singer) - HAVE FUN! We started off with a warm up with the Year 6 band and 'Wipe Out'. Sam Jones provided sound support before the bands started and in between performances; lots of the boys were keen to learn how his equipment worked and were keen to have a go! As with Wembury's Got Talent, we were treated to a range of brilliant performances. The children should be proud of themselves - we are impressed with their confidence and courage to perform in front of all of the children and adults watching.
We enjoyed the following performances:
Starbust (Year 3 band) - 'Don't Worry' by Bob Marley
The Graffiti Artists (Year 4 band) - 'Just the Way You Are' by Bruno Mars
Next Generation (Year 5 band) - 'Keep Holding On' by Avril Lavigne
Pic 'N' Mix (Year 6 girl band) - 'Love Yourself' by Justin Bieber
The Rackets (Year 6 boy band) - 'Stressed Out' by Twenty One Pilots
After much deliberation, the judges admitted they had had a very hard decision to make. They gave each band really valuable, specific feedback and then revealed their winner. Well done to both Year 6 bands who were chosen as joint winners! Once again, a huge thank you must go to Ms Boucherat for organising another brilliant event. We would also like to thank our judges, sound technician and everyone else who supported the event.
