Tell The Hoi? Triumph at Bath Racecourse Battle of the Bands
Bath based rock/indie band ?Tell The Hoi? beat seven other acts from City of Bath College at a Battle of the Bands competition held at Bath Racecourse on the opening day of the new season. The band?s reward is a 45 minute set at the forthcoming Bathfest which takes place 29 ? 30th May.
The competition, which took place in the Final Furlong Marquee, was judged by Dan Biggane Music Reviewer from Bath Chronicle along with Kat Branch, Music Lecturer at City of Bath College who explained “As expected, the standard of performances was very high.
The eight acts included chilled acoustic, punk, pop and rock, and each act was clearly keen to win. The audience was treated to nearly four hours of music. However, the wide variety of styles and high ability of the student bands ensured that interest remained high. We are delighted for Tell The Hoi and are sure they will represent the college well when they take to the stage at Bathfest in May.”
Tell the Hoi were clearly delighted with their win. “We were, and still are, insanely proud to win and to bag this spot at Bathfest as it will be our first performance at a festival, it also just so happens to be in our home town. What could be better?” explained lead singer, Harry Page.
“We performed four of our own, original tunes, kicking the set of with ‘Waterfall’, followed by ‘There For You’, ‘Figure Out’ and ‘Wide Eyed’. It seemed like the audience enjoyed it and it was good to see people jamming along and having a laugh with us along the way, it allows us to relax a bit, and have a good time. It's a huge honour to win Battle of the Bands and to get the opportunity to play Bathfest. We can't wait. Bring it on!”
Jo Hall of Bath Racecourse said “The Battle of the Bands competition was a great success and added something special to the opening day of the season. It also served as a good warm up event for the Bathfest which is also hosted by Bath Racecourse and which last year attracted 4,000 dedicated music fans. It will be great to see Tell the Hoi joining the other acts.”
