After a kick-arse inaugural year, The Big Splash band competition made its presence known for 2014 with a meet and greet of organisers, band members, sponsors and friends. Founders, Andrew Ryan and Maria Florides, welcomed guests with the news that the competition now has a naming rights sponsor, 4Pines, a Manly-based brewery, on board. A new look logo and website was also unveiled and SpaceManAntics played a sonically delicious set.
Get ready for eight heats and three finals at some of Perth’s favourite live music venues – The Bakery, The Rosemount, Mojo’s Bar, The Bird, The Odd Fellow, Ellington Jazz Club and Flyrite – as 32 bands (culled from 187 entrants) play their hearts out for the $10,000 cash prize and other goodies such as a $1500 voucher from Kosmic Sound.
Heat #1 happens at Mojo’s on Tuesday, June 3. For more details, head to thebigsplashbandcomp.com.
