Musicbox – Bands tune up for five nights
TAMWORTH’S second annual Battle of the Bands contest looks set to be a great success with 16 groups – some completely new to the scene – taking part. The event has been stretched over five nights, with four heats and a final which will possibly be judged by a celebrity.

And as well as winning the accolade of Tamworth’s best band, and a Young People’s Arts Festival trophy, the successful band will also win £50 worth of recording time at the Expresso Bongo studios.

The whole event will get underway two weeks on Sunday at Tamworth Arts Centre.

Sunday February 2Caprice and Femme Fatale take on the unknown quantities of Coleshill’s Burnin’ Sky and new Anice Byfield group Precious Toys.

Sunday February 9 – The Australians, One On One, Dance Stance and another new one, Drowning Pool.

Sunday, February 23Terroa, Spirit Lake, Judas Cradle and Breaking Point.

Friday February 28 – The Final.

PRECIOUS TOYS who are fast becoming an all star band have just recruited former Love On Board member Neil Jones joining his former colleagues in a group that promises a great deal.

Also on the line-up is former Sitting Pretty singer Anice Byfield , another ex-Pretty man the highly-respected Julian Amos, and former Breaking Point drummer Clarke Stewart.

The band will make their debut show on February 2 in the first heat of the Battle of the Bands.
