FORRES rockers Bad Actress scooped a grand prize – in more ways than one – at the Ironworks’ Rock Factor.

Last Saturday saw the inaugural band battle, organised by Hi-Hub, take place at Inverness’s largest music venue, with seven bands taking part.

And Bad Actress were named overall winner at the end of the night – winning £1000, professional recording time and a tour of Scotland.

The young Moray glam-rockers also received awards for best guitar solo and best cover for their rendition of AC/DC’s hit song, Thunderstruck.

Reacting to their Rock Factor success, drummer Lewis McFarlane (15), said:

“It was an absolutely brilliant night. There were so many great bands, so it was amazing to find out we had won.

“It was also great fun back stage, meeting the other bands. Everyone was supporting each other and just having a great time.”
