It's been a fantastic season for the Showcase Program
In Term 1, six bands went into the T.A.G Recording Studio and were very impressed with the quality of the gear and the facilities and the skill of engineer Tom Koroluk. Songs were posted on iCloud to share with family and friends. All bands performed two sold out shows at the Park Theatre on January 7th.
Term 2 has eight bands back at T.A.G. Studios with the same great results.
The final performance will at the Park Theatre.
