Who will win the RP Studios Emerging Sounds' band competition? Could it be one of bands featured with their MP3 download, on this page?

That's partly up to you, the public. Show your support by coming to the live gigs and casting your vote (entrance is only R10!). You'll see three bends on one night, and each only does five songs, so if any of them are bad, it's over really quickly. Check the schedule; show up

Regional winners go to the national final, held in Jo'burg. The winner walks off with an incredible prize:
* 20 days recording time at RP Studios
* An album deal with Sheer Music
* R25 000 worth of equipment from Roland

Download the songs featured below, then post a comment for the bands.
