As well a host of prizes, including rehearsal and recording sessions, the band will continue to get support from Deafbox Promomotions who helped organise the contest which saw 18 bands from across the area fight it out over six weeks.

If you want a chance to see the winners then they are playing this Saturday at an all day festival, at the Red Lion, Wirksworth, hosted by Deafbox Promotions.
