Who will be the Last Band Standing in Chilliwack?

The elimination-style band competition continues Thursday night heading into its sixth week at Major Leagues 2, says event emcee Brittany Waslen.

Local bands have been competing in earnest for the excellent prize of $1500 cash, a Long and McQuade credit, and some recording time.

“It’s a really good way to get local bands featured and it’s free to the public,” said Waslen.

The bands have been vying for the big prize by performing on the raised stage at Major Leagues 2 on Gaetz Road, and working the crowds leading up to Saturday’s final showdown.

Weekly door prizes have been doled out to keep it extra interesting.

The preliminary rounds were Sept. 8, Sept. 15 and 22. The semi finals continue on Oct. 6 and the final round of performances are on Oct. 8.

The fun typically starts at 6:30 p.m. with live music from the house band, Manhole Cover.

The finalists this week include three Chilliwack bands: The Leenie Bennett Band, Matt Lowen and 9:31, and they’ll be taking the stage after the hockey game at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, and then starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 8.

Admission is free.
