Tweed band making Impact



TWEED Christian rockers Maximum Impact are one step closer to winning a recording and a $14,000 audio engineering diploma after making it into the finals of the Got to be Youth (G2BY) competition challenge.

Maximum Impact astounded the crowd at Tweed Centro last week with an original concoction of preacher rock at the first G2BY Competition Challenge Heat for the Tweed region.

Creative Director for G2BY, Stephen Green said this is certainly a band to keep an eye on.

"This band is definitely going places, talented musicians with a lot of drive and ambition. This is exactly the type of talent we are trying to inspire to enter the G2BY competitions and entries are still open, so send in your applications before you miss out," he said.

The students from Lindisfarne Anglican College and Lakeside Christian College have performed at the Australian Gospel Music Festival in Toowoomba, opened the Carols by Candlelight at Dreamworld last Christmas and also played at the Wintersun Festival in 2004.

The band told the G2BY judges that their faith inspired and encouraged them to compete in the competition.

"We want to touch the nations of the world with Jesus, through our musical praise and worship," said Maximum Impact.

Maximum Impact will be performing live at G2BY's free event, 'Got 2b Loud - Rock and Short Film Festival' on November 12 at Queen Street Mall to compete for the major prize, against the other finalists.

For all you budding young rockers out there, entries are still open for the G2BY Competition Challenge. Entrants can pre-register for a heat time on the G2BY website before Sunday at www.g2by.com.au or just turn up on the dates specified prepared to compete.
