Earlier this month the regional heats for Smoke Free Rockquest was held in Tauranga with 48 groups playing original music competing for the top spots. We had 4 entries this year; a duo featuring Dominic Pearson & Caleb Leighton, and bands Twich, Djentlemen and Knitted Biscuit.

Djentlemen and Knitted Biscuit both made it through to the regional finals and Dominic won an award for musicianship.

We are very proud of their accomplishments.
