Veterans of T In The Park, SXSW, Rockness, Wickerman, Belladrum, In The City, The Great Escape and Liverpool Soundcity, The Draymin have been announced as winners of the first RockNess Sound City Stage Band Competition.

“The core value at Sound City is all about breaking emerging talent in the UK” and with The Draymin they certainly have a well established and experienced band, who have not quite broken through. In comparison to some of the other bands it is clear that there is a contrast in opportunities and experience.

We have to say that it is a massive shame that none of the local bands wan the prize, although we suspect that the number of local bands may have (and in contradiction to previous posts) meant that there was an issue with votes being split.

On the plus side at east we have the first announcement for Rockness 2012…

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
