Ottawa’s Rebel 101.7, along with Moose McGuire’s, gave the local hard rock scene a kick in the ass with their Real Rock Search this year. Stynger was crowned the winner and took home $5000 cash. Along with The Elegant Devils and Crossing Jane, the 3 bands battled it out in the grand final last week at Algonquin Commons Theatre.

A few hundred fans came out to watch the performances and vote. Each band played a 45 minute set, which consisted mostly of original music and a couple of covers thrown in.

If you haven’t yet caught a show at Algonquin Commons Theatre, it’s a great venue. I like it more and more every time I catch a show there. They have plenty more shows coming up. Check out their event listings.

Hopefully the contest will return next year and give more local rock bands some much needed exposure.
