UON Band Comp Final

Thursday, 7 June 2018

9 UON bands battle it out for top prize.

The 2018 UON Band Comp came to a thrilling conclusion on Monday 7 June, with soul fusion band Mr. Sauce securing first place.

Mr. Sauce have scored the headline slot at this year's Autonomy Party at Bar on the Hill, plus a $2000 recording contract with Baraya Records, and a paid, recorded and live streamed gig during lunchtime at Callaghan campus.

The competition was close, but a strong sense of camaraderie between all performers made for an uplifting evening which the entire UON community can be proud of. A fantastic audience turnout and participation seemed to bring out the best in the finalists.
