The Carnabys

The band fought off competition from 12,000 other bands from around the world to be judged by a panel of industry professionals including Steve Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band as the winners.

The band will now embark on a world tour with a slot at this summer's Hard Rock Calling festival in London featuring Headline performances from Bruce Springsteen and Kasabian. They will also have an album and music video produced by Hard Rock Records as well as being awarded over £6000 worth of gear.
