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.
