'Since Tuesday' wins

 

Youth four-piece band Since Tuesday are on cloud nine after winning the FReeZA Push Start regional heats earlier this month.Fresh off their finals appearance at the famous Star Search competition in Geelong, the four-piece acoustic band took out the Battle of the Bands in Hamilton on August 9, competing against nine other entrants from the region.

 

Speaking on behalf of the band, parent Angela Von Tunk said the band is elated with the outcome."It’s a great result for the band," Mrs Von Tunk said."They received some great critiques from the judges on their 20 minute set, which was one original and four covers."They now go onto the regional finals later in the year."She said in addition to a spot in the regional finals, Since Tuesday will headline the Spring Break Music Festival on September 17, a under-18s event run by FReeZA at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre."It will be a busy day as they have an audition for Moyne’s Got Talent on the same day, so a performance in the morning in Moyne, and a gig later in the day in Hamilton," Mrs Von Tunk said.With two band members currently focused on year 12 exams, the band is keeping a low profile, before a series of shows during the summer break.
