MEMBERS of some of the bands battling it out on the peninsula this year weren’t born when the FReeZA program started in 1997.
Musicians, bands, duos and solo artists are being invited to enter the annual Mornington Peninsula Push Start Battle of the Bands.
Presented by the young members of the Impakt Freeza committee, with assistance from Mornington Peninsula Shire’s youth services team, the event will be held at Peninsula Community Theatre in Mornington on 21 August.
The winner will represent the peninsula in the southeast regional finals.
The competition is open to people aged under 21 who live, work or go to school on the peninsula. The event is judged by an independent panel from the peninsula music scene and there is a range of prizes. It will be broadcast live on the peninsula’s community radio station Radio Port Phillip.
Applications close 22 July. Registration info: http://bit.ly/1dcPQX9
