Pateley Band Retain Crown in Battle of the Bands

A THREE piece band from Pateley Bridge retained their
top slot at this month’s Battle of the Bands in Northallerton.
And in a
gallant move, Rosie gave away their one-day recording session prize to runners-up Leaving Fortune.

Six local bands showcased their talents to over 250 young people at the Hambleton Forum and a panel of judges from Connecting Youth Culture. Youngsters at the event were also allowed a say – with their votes counting for half of the final marks.

But it was Rosie that won the battle for the second time in succession and walked away with the recording session, a three-hour mentoring session and a £50 Rock Box voucher.

They beat off competition from Leaving Fortune, Except Sanity, ATOM and Streetlights.

However, they gave away their recording session to Leaving Fortune due to them having their own recording equipment.

This was the second of this year’s battles organised by Hambleton District Council, with support from Connecting Youth Culture.

The next Battle of the Bands takes place on Friday, February 26, 2010.

I’m not entirely sure how accurate that is.


I also found this one:


There will also be entertainment from the Pateley Bridge Real Ale Tasting Society sword dancers, a hot chestnut stall, and Santa’s grotto.

And Nidd Chorale and the ROSIE Rock Band will perform at the Old Workhouse until 10pm.

On the Saturday St Nicholas will parade through the streets of Pateley Bridge to the Memorial Hall where the St Nicholas Fair will be held from 10am. The Summerbridge and Dacre Silver prize Band will perform at the fair, where Santa and his elves will be found in his grotto.

Elsewhere, there will be a children’s treasure hunt, a grand draw and stalls run by local voluntary groups.

Hmm… not sure what we signed up for here, but I do know we are going to need some SERIOUS support from you guys, so please, for the love of all things holy, come and watch us so we don’t look like complete idiots.



Our other quotes include (I’ll keep adding to this as international fame kicks in):

“I don’t want to download this shit !” Marine Baumann

“It’s better than coldplay…” Joseph Kuby

and on a more personal note, a certain someone thinks Tommy is “cute and coolcool” :D
