Search for a Stevenage Star rocks leisure park
Musicians rocked a pop-up studio over the weekend in a competition to find Stevenage’s rising stars.
Over fifty budding music acts wowed onlookers at Stevenage Leisure Park as part of Search for a Stevenage Star, a talent show run by the leisure complex.
Wannabe stars aged 6 to 45 were invited to record a track in a professional studio in a converted classic Airstream motorhome, with a �1,000 prize for the winning act on offer as well as a live slot at the town’s Christmas lights switch-on.
Fans outside the studio were able to watch the performances live via a TV screen.
Kept in the Dark were the youngest of 13 acts competing on Saturday with a version of Muse’s Supermassive Black Hole. Guitarist Ollie Bishop, 14, from Aston said: “We’ve got the talent and musicianship not just to win this competition but to establish ourselves as a leading local live act - practice makes perfect and time is on our side.”
