K Rock are looking for the next big musical talent in Geelong

Kicking off with the first heat this Friday, K Rock returns once again with their massive competition, The Band, to find the best unsigned or independent artist in Geelong and the Surf Coast.

Entries are now open for local musicians, and up for grabs is more than $5k worth of airtime with the station as well as a support slot for Samantha Jade on November 20 at Run Geelong.

Last year’s winner Sam Hanson remarked on the change winning the competition has made to his musical career. “Winning the Band 2015 has not only boosted my performing confidence, but has opened more doors within the music world than I could have imagined.” says Sam Hanson.

“I would have to say it’s given me opportunities that are priceless, and so important in furthering my musical journey…still now one year on and I am growing from strength to strength in my music.”

Heat one goes down on Friday, November 4 at Barwon Club Hotel. The competition runs over several heats which culminates in the finals from the lucky winners of said heats.
