Congratulations to all the bands who performed at Bandquest last Thursday and to our winning band ClassDisruption plus our 5 students with special awards!
Bandquest is an event for primary school rockbands up to year 8. It runs through out NewZealand and is in it’s 7th year. Bands get to play one song during the “heats-soundcheck” which is followed by tips and feedback from the judges. At the finals the bands get to play for up to 6 minutes either covers or originals.
This year Chisnallwood had 6 bands perform and they all sounded great! There were another 7 bands from around Canterbury on Thursday night, making a total of 13 bands on the night.
Class Disruption’s performance was obviously on fire as during their set, the fire alarms went off, the building was evacuated and fire trucks arrived. despite all this, they achieved first place. They are now in the National Finals. Class Disruption also achieved 3rd recently at the Canterbury Regional finals of Rockquest.
