K rock’s ‘The Band 2016’ wrapped up on Friday 18th November at Geelong’s home of live music, The Barwon Club.
Two heats and a final across three weeks of competition saw Geelong’s best and brightest local musicians strut their stuff on stage.
Sporting some serious live music cred, competing acts weren’t afraid to give it their best shot in front of judges and crowds.
The grand final judging panel consisted of guests Andy and Josh (Residual), last year’s winner Sam Hanson and K rock Music Director, Lee Stamps.
Their scores combined with votes from over 300 attendees to decide who took out the title.
Lee Stamps was very happy with eventual winners Dangerous Curves, saying ” Every year we unearth incredible local talent through ‘The Band’ competition and this year is no exception. Dangerous Curves are amazing performers, professional onstage and off and bring crazy amounts of energy and rock”.
Their unique brand of glam rock absolutely smashed it out of the park earning the band $5k worth of airplay on K rock over the next 12 months.
Their style and stage presence certainly gave Stamps a few ideas, saying “They do have better hair than me, so I’m looking forward to hair care tips in between sets and how to wear their band tee’s correctly. Really stoked for these guys and look forward to the next year with them”.
The celebrations didn’t stop on Friday night though. Dangerous Curves were up early on Sunday 20th November (still up from Friday?) and hit the stage while the sun was out to perform to a crowd of over 10,000 people at Run Geelong.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Van Halen and KISS, yet managing to carve out their own unique sound, Dangerous Curves have what it takes to make a big mark on the music scene both locally and further afield.
“All of us boys just want to say a massive thanks to the crew that came down to support us and the rest of the lineup. It’s a good boost up with taking the win for us to keep pushing forward, and thanks to K rock, we’re wrapped with having the opportunity for our songs to be played on the air waves!”
