Superjuice tops annual Comox Valley Battle of the Bands

Powell River band Superjuice topped the Battle of the Bands last Sunday in Simms Millennium Park in Courtenay as musicians younger than 18 competed for recognition and prizes.

Superjuice earned the first prize of four days at Dove Creek Recording Studios with engineer/producer Paul Keim. The band will also be given airtime on JET-FM as well as a live in-studio music video by Doug Deep of EyeWizard Films.

The second-prize winner was Fiftieth Parallel from Campbell River, which won a shopping spree of $600 at the newly opened music Courtenay store Long and McQuade.

The third-place winner was Rise with the Falling from Campbell River, which will benefit from a workshop hosted by Deep and Sam Shields at the Eye Wizard Films Studio. The workshop on writing technique will take their work to a more professional level.

The Battle of the Bands is the first event each year organized by the July 1st Committee, which organizes a multitude of Canada Day activities in Courtenay.
