Congratulations to all the rock bands who played at the Canterbury BandQuest 1 last night. All the bands played really well and to a superb standard. It was a great night with special sound and lighting. There were a total of 14 bands from ChCh and all the way from Timaru, with 5 from Chisnallwood. The judges were from the Dukes and a past RockQuest competitor and the guest band from Shirley Boys High AASHAWILLANDCULLEN was great.

Fantastic results from the Chisnallwood bands:
Best Original Lyric Award: Breana Riordan from the band "Rewind" for her lyrics for "Turn back the time"
"Killer" Guitarist award: Reuben Sepulona
3rd Place: "Fallen Sky" - Meg Collinson, James Kleiss, Tom Heeney and Liam Johnson.
1st Place winners: "Feedback" - Olivia Costello, William Murton, Taylah Emmett, Devin Pullyblank, Micah Watkinson and Thomas Hughes.
