Music BC Charitable Foundation would like to thank students from the Pacific Audio Visual Institute’s Music Business Management program for donating proceeds from their War of Rock fundraiser held at the Backstage Lounge on January 9th. The show was a resounding success, raising $970 for the Foundation and its ongoing mission of engaging and inspiring BC youth through access to music and music education.
Hosted by Ryan Biel and Taz VanRassel of The Sunday Service, the War of Rock featured a battle of the bands between Carm N Drea, Marry Me, Real Mad Decent, Those Things, The Plodes, Critical Junction, and American Supine. Joe Keithley of DOA and Daniel Byrne from Fader Master Studio were on hand to judge the performances.
All seven bands brought down the house, but Real Mad Decent and American Supine emerged victorious, winning 18 hours of studio time at PAVI studios and a student-produced music video. Congratulations to these two bands and to everyone who took part in the night!
