What is Band Slam?
Band Slam is a Waikato rock band competition for year 7 and 8 kids. Every year 20 bands enter to compete for a bunch of prizes, including best vocalist, best musicianship … and way more! The night is packed full of fun for the family and has become a highlight of the year for junior rockers across the Waikato.
