Band rock-out at showcase
Young East Kilbride musicians showcased their talents at a Battle of the Bands event recently.
The group of Calderglen High S3 pupils took part in the South Lanarkshire-wide contest with their outfit, Generation 7.
They were one of the youngest bands to take part in the competition and played during the day for a sound check and then competed later in the evening alongside a selection of young bands from a number of South Lanarkshire schools.
The band, consisting of Catriona Moffat 3T1, Ross Keskin 3T1, Ewan Hunter 3T1, Johnny Newton 3T1 and Luke Gallacher 3T1, performed in front of an all-star adjudication panel and narrowly missed out on an award, such was the level of competition on the night.
The evening was a fantastic display of top-quality rock and pop music and the quality of performances on display certainly got the audience rocking.
The evening was rounded up by a special guest performance by the up-and-coming internationally renowned band Be Charlotte.
Calderglen High music teacher Susan Menzies said:“It was a fantastic performance from Generation 7.
“The guys gained loads of experience from the competition and already have fantastic ideas on how to take their band forward for next year’s competition.”
