Future rockstars will have the chance to showcase their talent at Havering’s first ever battle of the bands competition.

Six young local acts will compete in Last Band Standing at Fairkytes Arts Centre next Friday before the winner is crowned in front of a live audience.

The bands hoping to impress the judges are The Broken Strings, whose influences include My Chemical Romance and Green Day, The Walking Method – who play fast-paced rock and roll, The Young Bloods – whose members have performed at the Molly Fest festival, Uprising, who provide upbeat punk tunes, Anonymous – who prefer slow rock, and GP5 – who will be entertaining audiences with alternative pop rock tunes.

The competition, which requires all band members to be aged 13-18, will take place between 7-10pm, with each act performing two songs.

The winners of the competition will be given three days in a local recording studio at myplace community centre to further enhance their talents and give them the opportunity to record their own material.

Tickets are selling fast and cost £5 or £4.50 concessions. They can be bought from Fairkytes, in Billets Lane, Hornchurch, or by calling 01708 456 308.
