Auraview dubbed top talent in Last Band Standing competition
ACOUSTIC rock outfit Auraview has taken out the Fraser Coast Chronicle's Last Band Standing competition, held at the Hervey Bay RSL on Saturday night.
Vocalist Rob Knox said the four-piece band was thrilled and looking forward to using $8000 worth of cash and prizes.
"We're absolutely stoked," he said.
"We're looking forward to getting into the studio."
Last Band Standing kicked off with heats in April, followed by a semi-final earlier this month, and the four best - Auraview, Arcade Vandals, The Shake and Locus - going through to the finals on Saturday night.
Mr Knox said the competition, a joint venture between the Chronicle and the RSL, had been fantastic for the local live music scene.
"It's been a real boost for live music in Hervey Bay," he said.
