Danny Byrne's Mother of All Bands competition drew some serious talent last Wednesday night, and a massive crowd too, out to support four great acts.

By the end three bands had made it through to the quarter-finals: solo artist and pianist Sandy McCabe (aka Jezebel), Lights Out from Ferbane, and Mullingar band Fewsion.

Tonight four more up-and-coming acts take to the stage from 9pm to be in with a chance of winning the €3,000 prize!

Speaking to the Westmeath Examiner, Marc Corrigan, the entertainment manager at Danny's, said he was blown away by the extent of raw talent on the night.

"There was a great turnout, and great support for all the bands, the talent was extraordinarily good and we were all just blown away by it," he said. Sandy McCabe moved the crowd close to tears with the emotion she expressed through her self-penned songs while playing piano, and metal band Fewsion really rocked things out. Lights Out, runner-up in the Midland's Got Talent contest, were also a winner with the audience on the night.

The fourth band, Magniot, a four-piece from Mullingar, delivered a great performance but didn't make it through.

Tonight, Wednesday February 22, four new acts will battle it out for a spot in the quarter finals, pop in to Danny's, admission is free.
