For the front of house sound equipment we used two full range cabs running at 1600 watts rms altogether. For stage monitoring we used two 350 watt wedges with amps to match. Seeing as it was the final we used the Allen & Heath desk and an effects rack. We also supplied stage lighst and a couple of moon flowers to make it a bit special.

The bands in the final where Dead End Dolls, Steven Light & the Black Sand Band, Sixty & the Hide. They were all good – the judges decided that manic Cardiff band “Sixty” where the winners so they go forward now to the regional finals in Cardiff where they are sure to have lots of support.
