Local high school bands to perform with Stonefield

Three local high school bands will enjoy an opportunity of a lifetime on Saturday (03/09) when they play with one of Australia's biggest up and coming bands in Australia.

‘The Mimes', ‘The Fury' and ‘The Grim Fandangos' will all perform at a fully supervised, all ages, drug, smoke and alcohol free event Karova Lounge on Saturday at 2pm, prior to headline act ‘Stonefield'.

City of Ballarat People and Communities Portfolio Councillor Des Hudson said the all ages gig was a valuable opportunity for three local up and coming bands to play in front of a large, live audience.

"Having only played a handful of gigs to date, each of the bands has had limited experience, so to be given an opportunity such as this, will provide the groups with enormous exposure.

"Council's Youth Services team provides a number of events throughout the year to provide up and coming bands with a platform to develop their performance skills."

‘The Mimes', are a five piece band, who's style has been described as a punk rock/garage rock/60's nevo punk. Together since October 2009, The Mimes write their own songs, occasionally throwing in a cover to entice their audiences.

‘The Fury' are aged between16 and 17 and play energetic indie rock music. One of their first shows was at the Battle of the Bands in July.

Aged between 15 and 17 years, ‘The Grim Fandangos' play Funk Rock music and placed third in the recent Battle of the Bands event in July.

Tickets to the all ages show are $12 plus booking fee and are available at New Generation, Korova Lounge and Oztix.

Stonefield will also perform at an 18 plus gig at 8.30pm.

The show is a FreeZa State Government funded event.
