Band rock-out at show­case

East Kilbride News - - SCHOOLS -

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.”
