College Rock was wildly entertaining

Schools across Johannesburg sent in their audition tapes; but only seven rock bands were short-listed to perform on the night, for their fans and the adjudicators.

The bands were:

  • Saints Republic, from St Stithians
  • Broken Symmetry, a band out of Crawford College and St John’s College
  • Unchartered, from Charter College
  • Rush, from St Stithians
  • Hipnotic, from St John’s College
  • Sunday Night, from Beaulieu College, and
  • The Undecided, Dainfern Colleges very own rock band.

The adjudicators had a tough time picking out the winnings bands, since all the bands were so talented and entertaining.

The Undecided performed a stirring tribute to band Linkin Park. They tied with Rush in third place, with both bands commended for their awesome stage presence.

In second place was Broken Symmetry, with their rocking rendition of My Kind of Woman. The band walked away with R1 500 vouchers from sponsor Mitech Direct.

The first place winners were jazz band Hipnotic. Their jazzy vibe and cool tunes won them R2 500 vouchers from Mitech Direct as well as Sennheiser headphones for each band member.

One of the evening's highlight's was the performance by High School English teacher, Mr Rodger (accompanied by his band, Cold Water Morning). They were joined on stage by the College principal, Mr Davies, who rocked out with his Jean Simmons Axe bass guitar, to the delight of students and staff!

Well done to all the bands! And thank you to sponsors Mitech Direct, Sennheiser and Col’Cacchio. 

A huge thanks to the adjudicators: Corne van Niekerk (vocalist with the band Go the Rodeo), Victor Monginho (drummer with Facing the Gallows) and William Bishop (trombonist with Fuzigish).
