Rafikee win 2019 Mega Muso's Battle of the Bands

Port Lincoln trio band Rafikee took out the title at this year's Mega Muso’s Battle of the Bands and took home 20-hours of free studio time at Atlantis Records in the process.

The 2019 Tunarama Festival kicked things off on Thursday night with the Port Lincoln Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) and West Coast Youth and Community Support (WCYCS) music event.

Six musical acts performed with each act showcasing the high calibre of local talent on offer.

Rafikee's Kaya Huntley, Cooper Story and Rainer Story were the last act to take the stage, before belting out cover songs such as Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer and Black Sheep by Gin Wigmore.

The winning trio have supported Adelaide band FYRE BYRD twice, but can now add the Mega Muso’s title to their accolades.

Joint second went to artists Ari Gentillin and Tascha Jordison, with the pair sharing the $100 cash and $250 worth of electronic equipment.

Mr Gentillin played all original songs during his set, with Tascha performing a mix of original and cover songs.

Jack Upston and Jake Horton kicked the night off with an original song and acoustic renditions of various hits.

Followed by Charlee Watt who stripped back some classic rock classics and belted out two powerful acoustic versions.

The sister duo Indieblue were next, with Ellie and Jasmine Slater performing original folk acoustic hits with their unique voices.
