High note for music students

Friday 15 April 2016

Representing Bedford College for the 2016 Battle of the Bands at the Stables, MK were the winning band, 'Weighted Space'.

The group comprised of five first year Music Performance students, who competed against 10 other schools and colleges to win the event.

Jamie Gilman-Lewis (bass player and co-singer of Weighted Space) said: "Winning Battle of the Bands was something that we weren't expecting, so when they announced our name we were both overjoyed and genuinely shocked.”

“The whole night was so much fun and it makes me very excited for the future of the band. Congratulations to everyone who took part, thanks to the organisers and the judges, and well done to everyone in Weighted Space for pulling off the win”.

The students have won Marshall amps and a free six hour recording session together with an electric piano worth £1,000 for the music department.

Bedford College staff Charlie Luscombe and Ben Baal-Bowdler, the rest of the music team and students would like to congratulate 'Weighted Space' and all the other schools, colleges and organisers that took part in this fantastic event.
