Lichfield band gain wildcard entry into final of Staffordshire competition

A band from Lichfield has been given a second chance at rck stardom, by being chosen as a wildcard entry to the Staffordshire Rocks Grand Final.

Unlimited from King Edward VI School have been chosen for the June 26 showpiece after the judges awarded them the highest points of the runners up in the Eastern Region final allowing them entry into the grand final.

The bands were marked for technique, accuracy, quality of vocals, general musicianship, stage presence, and rapport with the audience.  Added to this, they were also marked on their overall performance, and how well they played together as an ensemble.

Deputy Leader and Lead Member for Children and Young People, Ian Parry, said:

“I’m really pleased to see Unlimited granted a wildcard entry.  The heat judges all agreed that their performances were of an extremely high standard, and it is testament to their hard work that they have been awarded a place in the final.”

The band, who have been together for about a year and whose influences include Coldplay, Muse and The Eagles  will now join eight other bands in the Grand Final, held at the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford.

The Staffordshire Rocks Grand Final will be held on June 26 at 7pm.  Tickets are £8 and £5, with a group discount of five per cent  available for parties of six or more in one booking. To book call 01785 254653 or visit
