Our very own Jack Hendy (Drum student of Alison and Ollie at Learn to Rock) and his Leeds based band ‘Avenoir’ won the Battle of the Band competition (in aid of Martin House Children’s Hospice) staged last Thursday 20 July at the Leeds O2 Academy.
Bands from all over the country battled it out in regional heats then a regional final to gain a place with the final 14 bands at the O2 academy last Thursday.
The final bands played a 20 minute set of original material to see which lucky band would win this great competition.
‘Avenoir’ sailed through with massive audience support and great reviews from the judges.
‘Avenoir’ will this summer play a set at the Leeds and Reading Music Festivals.
They will also record one of their singles and produce a video for it.
What a fantastic achievement for Jack and ‘Avenoir’ and what an amazing experience performing at Leeds and Reading festival will be for the guys.
Many congratulations from Alison and all the tutors and students at Learn to Rock.
