Our youngest band wins UK wide talent competition!
With an average age of just 12 years old, the group affectionately known by all of us here as “the Wee Band” have won Best Rock Band in a UK wide talent competition.
Having run for several years now, UK Live and Unsigned is perhaps the country’s biggest event for unsigned musicians and bands and with as many as 10,000 acts entering across the UK, this year was no exception.
Having fought their way through both a first stage audition and a regional final, and having fallen just short of a grand final place last year, our young band joined 79 other music acts the London 02 this past Saturday for the 2011 Grand Final determined to give it their all.
Up against a number of experienced high quality acts including many adults and professional musicians, the young students from the Loud ‘n’ Proud School of Rock took to the stage and displayed talent well above their age, winning their category to become the “Best Rock Band 2011”
We are all immensely proud of them here and know that for talented youngsters such as these, this is just the start!
