Battle of the Bands 2013
The 25th anniversary of OUSA Battle of the Bands hosted its final on Saturday 25th of May with 9 bands fighting it out for the win.
The judges certainly had a tough job on their hands with such a high calibre of acts including metal, rock, gypsy rock and reggae bands all putting their best foot forward. Honourable mentions have to be made to dark gypsy jazz inspired group, The Soignés and two piece band Heroes for Sale.
Thoughtful and the Might Heart took third place while Iron Tusk came 2nd. Eight piece Reggae band Reo were the reigning champions on the night walking away with $400 cash, $500 advertising campaign from Radio One, Reo tees from Konstruct, a polished recording package from Otago University Music department and a music video shot and produced by Moi Moi Productions.
