Rockenspiele rock battle

ROCKING reports are coming from all who attended the South Gippsland FReeZA Battle of the Bands in Leongatha last Wednesday.

More than 40 people attended the event at he Dakers Centre, a fantastic result according to FReeZA committee member Nick Jeremiah.

“It’s the most I’ve ever seen at one of these gigs,” he said.

“We were hoping that we would get a lot more than usual because we were able to advertise on Facebook, so we were able to branch out to a lot more people than what we usually do.

“We will certainly be using Facebook to promote events in the future.”

In their third year competing, Foster based Rockenspiele took out the battle with their punk influenced clash of all girl rock.

The girls will now go on to battle it out at the regional event and then possibily have the chance to play at the Push Over Festival in 2014.

Judges included John Reese of Men at Work fame who is now a local musician, Amie-Jean Denham a local bass guitarist and singer, and Yelka Ishmakovich, a singer song writer from the area and an ex-FreeZa committee member.

Yelka also amazed the crowd with her incredible voice, as part of the concert.

With the popularity of live music all ages gigs in South Gippsland rising, local music festival Raw Vibes may make an re-appearance.

“I would love to see Raw Vibes come back again,” Nick told The Star.

“I reckon it’s something that should happen at least once a year so I’m hoping it will come back next year but I can’t say for certain.”
