The Gas Tanks - MFY Finals, Saturday 8th July
he Gas Tanks did Hurstmere proud on Saturday at the Music For Youth national finals. They were up against some very strong competition, but were called "a very exciting band, with a real diversity in their approach".
Gary Landick and Matt Morley (Year 11), Ed Demi-Ejegi and Jake Chen (Year 10), Sam Ward (ex-pupil) and Tom Monks were joined by two girls from Blackfen Year 10 and three boys (including Will Morley) from the Guildhall School of Music playing brass.
They performed their three songs brilliantly and received the following comments from the judges:
"vibrant and engaging performance style
"good stylistic awareness"
"a real sense of identity"
"bold, tight and control rhythm section playing"
"fun, catchy and very memorable melody and lyrics"
We now wait for the outcome, announced in August, but fingers crossed!
