The annual Battle of the Bands was held on Sunday 23rd April with an array of energetic performances in Court wowing the crowds.
C2 started the proceedings with a cover of Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer. This set the tone for a wonderful afternoon which left our adjudicator Russell du Plessis, Director of Music at The Pilgrims’ School, with some difficult decisions to make. Each House performed with confidence, charisma and had great stage presence. I was really impressed by how professional each band was on stage – playing in front of a big crowd without sound checks. However, after much deliberation, Mr Du Plessis chose Turner (Use Somebody by Kings of Leon) and New Court (Locked out of Heaven by Bruno Mars) as joint winners.
This was another wonderful afternoon of music at Marlborough and my thanks go to everyone for all of their hard work preparing for this event.
