Isle of Wight to host battle of the bands

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays next weekend may wish to go along to a battle of the bands competition being hosted on the island.

Some 12 local groups are to go up against each other in a bid to win the chance to support Toploader at a show on the island later in the month, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Coburgs on Union Street in Ryde will be hosting the contest next Thursday and Friday (January 12th and 13th), while the show itself is on January 27th.

Isle of Wight-based act The Operators have already been announced as the main support band for the Toploader gig.

Dancing in the Moonlight was the biggest hit Toploader have had in their career to date, although they have also enjoyed live support slots with the likes of US rock titans Bon Jovi.

Next Saturday night (January 14th) sees The Crisis take to the stage at King Lud in Ryde.
