Time for fi­nal bat­tle

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

BANDS are go­ing head to head in the Pass­port to Air­lie Bat­tle of the Bands fi­nal.

The Pass­port to Air­lie heats are be­ing held in 15 lo­ca­tions around Aus­tralia, from Dar­win to Ade­laide, with the Sun­shine Coast be­ing one of the lo­ca­tions in be­tween.

One lucky Coast act will be set for mu­si­cal great­ness af­ter com­pet­ing this week­end.

The lo­cal band or mu­si­cian set to win the Pass­port to Air­lie will get the chance to per­form at Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic later in the year.

From the first heat Leonie King­dom, the Black Creek Band and Man­tis Em­pire won through to the fi­nals.

They are joined by Do­rah Jac­son, Malia Stir­ling and Mu­ules Band who all won from the sec­ond heat.

Caloun­dra Power Boat Club op­er­a­tions man­ager Shane An­der­son said the fi­nal would be a great af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment with a mix of soloists and bands.

“They are also a dif­fer­ent mix of gen­res which will en­sure an en­ter­tain­ing af­ter­noon,” Mr An­der­son said.

“With views over­look­ing the stun­ning Pu­mice­s­tone Pas­sage you can re­lax and en­joy a fan­tas­tic meal while lis­ten­ing to some of the best lo­cal tal­ent.”

Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic founder Gavin But­lin said peo­ple on the Sun­shine Coast were re­ally look­ing for­ward to Pass­port to Air­lie.

“The bands have a chance to play their orig­i­nal mu­sic and mu­sic lovers ev­ery­where get to dis­cover new tal­ent.

“Plus, once they get to Air­lie, we have 15 in­cred­i­ble bands who are all great in their own right and we get to show­case them.”

Bat­tle of the Bands fi­nal is on Sun­day, Septem­ber 9.

En­try is free at Caloun­dra Power Boat Club and doors open from noon with en­ter­tain­ment go­ing through un­til 6pm.
