A musician from Haywards Heath is appealing for budding musicians to come forward to join rock ban

Hereward Kaye, former member of The Flying Pickets and founder of Rok Skool, is appealing for young musicians to sing and play bass guitar.

“We need male singers from 9-years-old upwards for our rock bands,” he told the Middy.

“There has never been such a lack of them. Rok School is for anyone from the age of 6 to 66. But we need male vocalists. Where are they all?”

Hereward said Rok Skool, in Haywards Heath is a ‘great starting point’ for young people who want to be in a band.

“We have The One competition coming up and it would be a great time to shine,” he added.

The competition was launched in 2013 for people across Mid Sussex, but now the competition has expanded to cover West Sussex, East Sussex, Kent and Hampshire.

The One is for bands and solo acts aged between 11 and 24, who can progress through the competition – starting with an audition, semi finals and a grand final at The Martlets in Burgess Hill in March.

The winners will be chosen by the audience and judges, with a team of music industry judges selecting the bands and solo artists for the finals.
