Award-winning Chisnallwood Intermediate School band Class Disruption joined the big league last week, recording an original in a studio.
Earlier this year, the band won national competition Bandquest, the intermediate school’s version of Smokefree Rockquest.
As a prize, the band were given the opportunity to record a song and video in Orange Studios, one of the more well known studios in the South Island.
The band recorded their winning song Take It Away and created the video complete with smoke machines and a light show.
“It was a really fun and amazing experience,” said band member Dylan Jonkers.
Take It Away was written by Dylan and is about having confidence in yourself and not giving up.
The prize also included $3000 for the school’s music department.
The band is made up of Dylan Jonkers (vocals, songwriting and bass), Sho Woodhouse (drums), Hiromu Crosado (keyboard) and Jacob Carey (guitar).
