UK Band Slam winners Stoyic.
On September 20th, 2005, the Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester
UK was host to the UK Band Slam Final. The band talent contest was organized
by EA games to launch their new computer game “Burnout Revenge’
in association with Gibson and the Hard Rock Café. Similar finals
were conducted in France, Italy, Spain and Germany. EA had 330 entries for
the UK final which was whittled down to 4 for the night. Epiphone goodies
were handed out to the crowd throughout the evening before judges from EA
Games, Sony/BMG Records and the New Musical Express awarded two Epiphone
electric guitars and a bass to winners "Stoyic". The four piece band from
Bristol who have an average age of 17 had ditched school that day to compete!
