Organized by ERA Radio, sponsored by DiGi with the support of Ministry of Social Development & Urbanization Sarawak, RockERA DiGi is the biggest Battle of The Band in Sarawak’s calendar for 2011 which offers a total of RM10,000 cash to be won. The first preliminary round which was held at University Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Kota Samarahan was the opening round for the Battle of The Band. 10 bands compete in this first round to win a RM1,500 cash as the prize.
The 10 bands are:-
The show was so awesome its like you’re really in a concert rather than a competition. Personally, I think there are so much talent among those competed during this battle of the band and they are worthy as recording artists. I was quite surprised to see these qualities were born in our own local indie bands. Some of these bands has been established for sometimes and there’s no surprise if they can deliver a very powerful performance. What surprise me more was, a couple of bands were just being formed less than a year but devastatingly AWESOME!
The competition ends around late noon. Check out which band won 🙂
CONGRATULATION! to SONAR INSTINCT which emerge as the winner for the first round of RockERA DiGi entitling them to bring home the weekly prize worth RM1,500 of cash. Their debut songs during the battle was Summer Romance, a cover song from Incubus and Berfikir Di Luar Kotak, a song of their own.
