An up-and-coming Welshpool band has wowed the judging panel of the UK’s biggest original music competition to sail through the auditions of Live and Unsigned.
 
The Misty Blue Trio will now compete against the most talented bands and artists in the country at the Regional Final Showcase in Cardiff in March – all in a bid to make the Grand Final at The O2.

The local lads battled against hundreds of bands to secure a spot in the live shows with the best acts given the opportunity to play at some of the biggest festivals in the UK. This year’s competition also offers acts an extra chance for exposure as it’s being filmed for Sky TV in an exclusive fly-on-the-wall documentary.
 
The winners will be crowned the UK’s best unsigned act and celebrity judges in previous years have included former Slade front man Noddy Holder, R’n’B star Shola Ama, Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Ras Kwame, Tom Deacon and Daniel P Carter, as well as members of top bands such as The Libertines, The Bloodhound Gang, Funeral for a Friend and Kids in Glass Houses.

Chris Grayston, Events Director of Live & Unsigned said: “Live and Unsigned is all about originality, live ability and credibility. We don’t accept demos or submissions and everyone auditions live. We’ve got some fantastic prizes up for grabs this year in a £100,000 prize pool, including a new main cash prize of £10,000. The festival slots and other prizes available make this year’s competition our biggest ever!”
