The Rock-itt : August 2010
Manly Marvels Band Competition at the Manly Fisho's Semi Final number 2, Tuesday July 6, 2010 Manly Marvels band competition hosted by A Red Letter Day Event Management saw the second of two semi finals before the grand final, which again was independently judged (previously judged by a crowd vote). This Semi Final saw five bands battling it out for a coveted Grand Final ticket. The bands competing were Owles, Left Me Cold, Seek The Silence, Birds of a Feather and Snaketide. The night went as followed: Owles a three piece delivered their brand of tight bluesy rock; Left Me Cold with lots of growly vocals mixed with melodic singing, syncopated stage movement by all members of the band jumping around on stage and doing a crazy version of Lady Gaga's 'Let's Dance' was very entertaining; Seek the Silence gave us a very slick and polished pop/punk set with lots of stage action; Birds of a Feather gave us a style of dynamic rock somewhat like early Midnight Oil mixed with Kasabian and got good crowd reaction; and finally Snaketide took control with their tight brand of upfront rock sounding like The Doors meets The New Christs with lots of stage action by their entertaining energetic frontman. The results for the night were 1st -- Snaketide, 2nd -- Seek the Silence, 3rd -- Birds of a Feather and 4th -- Left Me Cold. These four bands progressed to the Grand Final.
