battle of the bands

The Sands Hotel is bringing back the Battle Of the Bands

All you need is 4 songs and a dream...

Sing, play, or do a combination of both. BYO band or play to a backing track.

Each act or band will get 30 minutes of stage time to set up their kit & perform 4 songs. We have an amp and a couple of mics, but you will need to bring all your own instruments.

The audience favourite for each heat will win $100 cash and be invited back for the Grand Final on November 3rd.

The audience favourite will be determined by the Sands Hotel Clap-o-Meter (the loudest applause will win... so be sure to bring your cheer squad).

The winner of the Grand Final will win $500 cash, as well as infinite prestige and bragging rights.

To secure your spot, please call Chris or Gina at the Sands Hotel 9326 8800 - or email us at
