It's another showcase for Castlegar's Roy Has Fire, where supporters can win money.

Roy Has Fire cultivates an ever-expanding fan base thanks to their talent

Having a teenage son in a hardworking rock band is challenging and fun, and Erica Scott has enjoyed the role of manager. The band Roy Has Fire has a lot of ambition, though, and they’ve made some valuable contacts they hope will keep them on an upward path. One of those contacts is a manager Erica is pleased to defer to.

Roy Has Fire went through a successful and educational stint in a recent province-wide best band contest where the made it to the top five.

Here’s what Erica Scott had to say following the recent competition:

“On behalf of the band I want to thank you all so much for the support you showed for the boys in the BC Best Teen Band Contest.  Although they are disappointed not to have made it to the Top 3 they were thrilled to have been in such good company in the Top 10 and very grateful for all the support and encouragement for the Community.”

Scott’s email to the Castlegar News concludes: “After the month long odyssey of voting we weren’t even going to bother people about voting for Roy Has Fire in the current CBC Searchlight competition, but then i just found out that voters can win $1.000 just for voting and it’s much easier on this site – just one click.  So I thought you might want to share that with your listeners/readers.”
