Four more acts take to the stage on Sunday afternoon as this year’s Battle of the Bands reaches its penultimate heat.

The venue is The Rathskeller on Lynn’s South Quay and the start time is 4pm.

Triston Finnis of Twisted Melon Promotions writes: “This great little venue is fast becoming a hub of local musical talent and this promises to be another diverse heat pitting new original acts up against seasoned cover bands.

“There’s room for all styles on the Festival Too stage so may the best act win.”

Here’s a run-down on the acts:


Local musicians Katherine Brittain and Max Bottone are performing together as a duo following up to their great performance in last years Simply Acoustic competition.

They have played with a number of local acts and bring together Kat’s versatile vocal and great stage presence with Max’s accomplished guitar playing.


Cambridgeshire Duo Brightside are brothers performing original indie tracks with the odd ‘jazzed up’ cover thrown in. they have been performing together for six years after separately playing with various different bands. They’ve now found each other and settled on their own unique style.


With the sprightly melodies of the new pop pretenders and the dark lyrics of the alternative rock set, Lewis Murphy’s world is full of tensions and contrasts. A crippling fear of heights, but an ambition to play the roof of The Empire State building show that this British born and bred performer is trying to make sense of and conquer the restrictions of everyday life.

Drawing influence from Andy Murray and his work ethic, Lewis spends every waking moment submerging into lyric writing and recording demos, expanding experience and knowledge within his writing all the time. Think pop singing of Taylor Swift with the musical excellence of Ben Howard; now you’re heading into Lewis’s world.


Formed in early 2013 by two veteran rockers of Norfolk, Rob Ross and Steve Reason, On the Level are aiming to provide rock fans with that burst of hard-hitting rock that makes for a great night out.

The band play classic hits, such as Queen’s Tie Your Mother Down, and Thin Lizzy’s Boy’s Are Back In Town, spiced up with a few of the Quo’s great songs such as Whatever You Want and Down Down, and garnished with some more recent hits such as Green Day’s Holiday and My Chemical Romances teenagers
