Battle of the Bands Final 2019

Congratulations to The Dominoes from Newpark who won The Battle of the Bands. What a fantastic performance. The DFEi canteen was rocking as the bass guitarist Xochitl got the audience warmed up. They performed their own songs and were so well rehearsed appeared very relaxed on stage and were enjoying the music as much as the audience. The two other bands who performed were Fidelity Radio from Sandford Park and Red Velvet from Blackrock College and Newpark. Great energy from all participating bands and for many of us mature adults it definitely felt like we were back in college. Thanks to DFEi students from MP1 and MP2 who worked very hard on sound. Thanks to all the teachers in the sound and music production department who helped with this event.
