Band on da Run – Newport – 2013

Band on da Run 2013



[one_half last=”no”]Its that time of year again… Band on da Run 2013. Up to 30 bands playing as many 10 minute acoustic sets as they can over 30 venues, all within 5 hours. Why? For the chance to win £1000, gain a slot at Post Fest 2013 and raise money for a local charity.

In its second year running, Band on da Run was another huge success building on last years event. This time round the event was slightly more refined, using Newport as the only location to compete – last year was great for the bands playing over several Island towns… not so great for spectators waiting about at venues hoping to see some musical talent – good call. Newport was alive with bands on the run, dashing from venue to venue to showcase their talents for a chance to win the grand prize. Only the band with the most wristbands obtained from each venue played would win.[/one_half]

[one_half last=”yes”]From 11am to 4pm Newport was alive with competitors, then it was back to Lloyds bar for a beer, closing performance by the host band “The Cardinal Richeliue”, and the all important results.

Congratulations to joint winners “Someones Secret” and “IAN”![/one_half]
