Students went to Bridlington for the annual Battle of the Bands on Monday 8th July. Students competed against a range of schools from East Riding, performing two covers and one original song to the judges and audience. BGS’ entry, Apocalypse, performed Robbie William’s ‘Candy’, their own composition ‘Grammar Blues’ and finally the rocking track, ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.
The band, consisting of Matthew Wastling (lead vocals), Tom Foulkes (backing vocals, tuba), Dan Kitson (guitar 1), Harry Loney / Peter Woodmancy (guitars), Milton Ashbridge (bass), Peter Riggs (drum kit) and Ruairi Sinkler (percussion) came an amazing 3rd in the competition! Perhaps the numerous games of beach rounders and fish and chips beforehand helped the students to relax into their performance?
