City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said he encouraged established bands and individual musicians to consider throwing their hat into the ring.
“Battle of the Bands never fails to disappoint, which is no surprise considering how talented the local music scene is,” he said.
“There will be cash prizes up for grabs again this year, as well as prizes for best original song and best under 25’s band.”
Local musician and Battle of the Bands 2019 winner Ian Weggler is this year’s event ambassador, saying the experience of competing had been invaluable.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by entering.
“As with previous years, a tailor-made space is available for individual musicians to come down and form a band with other participants, and mentors will be on hand to help you out.
“You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by entering.”
Anyone interested in entering the competition is encouraged to head down to 201 Lester Avenue from 5pm tonight for an informal meet and greet and Q&A session with established musicians and event organisers.
