Battle of the Bands 2017 Raises Over £30,000!


IMG_2556v2 Battle of the Bands was back on Friday 21st April, bringing a night of excitement as Vincent, The Fabulous Ace Tones and Easy battled it out, in the hope of being crown as this year’s winners. The Soul Doctors headlined this year’s event, with all of the bands providing a great night of music, at the Hilton hotel.

Heart Radio’s Paul Harper was our host for the evening. Our celebrity judging panel this year had ex Scottish and British Lions player John Beattie, actor Sanjeev Kohli, Artist Manager Jamie Webster, co founder of Del Amitri Bryan Tolland, and BBC reporter Jamie McIvor, who helped decide this year’s winners. Easy were announced as this year’s winners and they managed to bag themselves a day’s recording time at Gorbals Sound music studio!

Our 4th annual Battle of the Bands was a massive success, with the event raising a total of £30, 632! We would like to say a massive thank you to the organising committee, led by John Dalby, who have once again worked so hard to ensure the event was a huge success. We would also like to thank everybody who attended Battle of the Bands, our host and judges, our volunteers who helped us on the night, and all of the donors who helped us create an auction, silent auction and raffle full of amazing prizes.
