On Saturday the 20th of May, the 'Smokefree Rockquest' and 'Tangata Beats' heats took place at Taieri College, providing a platform for high school bands, duos, and soloists to showcase their musical skills and what they have been working on this year.

Out of the 46 groups and soloists that participated, there were four bands from John McGlashan College: 104 Days, featuring Rylan Urquhart, Kaleb Durant and Ethan Leitch; Soul Side, featuring Leo Hill, Jamie Bradfield, Christopher Body, and Adam Ludgate; Facts Machine, featuring Leon Kaan, Taylor Baker, Mitchell Urquhart, and Patrick McKenzie; and Unknown, featuring Toby Hebden, Nelson Rimmer and Brayden Arlidge. 

We are thrilled to announce that 104 Days and Soul Side have secured spots in the regional top 12, earning them well-deserved entry into the highly anticipated Regional Finals. These hard-working students will perform at the Mayfair Theatre on June 16th. We wish the best of luck to these boys as they represent John McGlashan College in the regional finals.
