Pocket Rocket is set to rock

The Byron Youth Activities Centre is relaunching the 2009 Pocket Rocket Youth Band Competition on Saturday August 15.

Byron Shire Council’s YAC co-ordinator Michael Prigmore said band entrants must be under the age of 25, with the majority of the members living in Byron Shire.

“Pocket Rocket has uncovered and supported amazing local young talent in the past such as Natalie and Carlo from Blue King Brown, who performed in the original Pocket Rocket, and Luke Kilpatrick, who is now in Parkway Drive,” Mr Prigmore said.

“Pocket Rocket is going to be an awesome showcase of our emerging local talent and we invite everyone to come along and support the local young musicians.”

Entry forms are available at local high schools, music outlets or can be downloaded from the council’s website
