On Sunday 25th May, 11 Green Bay High School music students took part in the West Auckland heats of SMOKEFREEROCKQUEST at Westlake Boys.

Once again the competition was fierce – 25 bands taking part in total (with Kaipara College alone sent 15 bands along to compete).

The GBHS bands were:
The BIG GUS – Fergus White (bass), Mitchell Baber (vocals and guitar) and Luke Walsh (drums).
The Fugawe – a combination of Jack Queenin (guitar) and students from Avondale College.
Title Pending – Ruben Mita (guitar), Cameron Mason McCurdy (drums and vocals), and Josh Rundle (bass).
Courtney Hate – Jami Kerrigan (vocals), Ruby Colwell (guitar), Marieke Van Orsoy De Filnes (bass) and Xanthe Brookes (drums).

We are very proud of how all of the students played and also how honourably they behaved – showing support to all the the other bands and schools.

The BIG GUS and Courtney Hate have been selected to take part on the West Auckalnd Finals at ZEAL (Henderson) on Saturday June 28th. Watch this space…
