Local Musos strut their stuff for the love of our 4 legged friends!

Battle of the Backyard Bands 2010  - Proudly supporting RSPCA ACT

Canberra Music Workshop has kindly volunteered to host the first ever Battle of the Backyard Bands, with all proceeds going to RSPCA ACT. The event offers amateur musicians in Canberra the opportunity to gain recognition and experience while fundraising for RSPCA ACT.

Each Thursday night until October 7, local bands and other musical acts will perform.

The Battle is on from 7 until 10 pm Thursday nights at the Canberra Deakin Football Club and is already well on the way to its fundraising target of $10,000.

School bands also welcome. There are several spots still available for entries and we encourage any amateur musical act to enter - all welcome. Contact Andrew on 0450 960 750.

Local businesses have supported the event to ensure excellent prizes are provided including a PA worth over $2,600 from Pro Audio and studio time to cut a 6 song demo from Rudesounds studio.

The idea is that each week a heat will be held featuring 3 acts and a winner chosen by a judging panel.  The winners (10 of them) will compete for the grand prize at a final event on Saturday 30 October.

RSPCA ACT provides a charitable service to all residents in our nation’s capital but we can’t do it alone. We need to work with everyone in the community to secure much-needed funds and keep our mission, to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection alive.

I really do hope that you will choose to support this exciting event through notifying your audience and community announcements.  If you would like any additional information on the event please contact me on 0450 960 750, email  or about the work done by RSPCA ACT please contact RSPCA ACT on 1 300 4RSPCA.
