4 August 2015 – Member’s Statement
Mr WALSH (Murray Plains) – I congratulate a group of talented young Swan Hill rock musicians Yung Gunz who are into the grand final of the reality television talent show Band Wars.
The band has dominated four rounds against 43 bands from across Australia to take its place on the finalists stage. Each round has been filmed at Musicland in Melbourne and aired on the Aurora channel.
Eli Keating Jason Forster Shannon Bishop Callum McNab and Lachie Dunn are the youngest in the competition but already have a string of original songs a CD under their belt and a music video underway.
Their success is no doubt influenced by their highly respected local teacher and mentor Stuart Holt and the community wishes them well in the finals on 23 August.
