Sandalphon wins 9th MCL OctobeRock

This year’s OctobeRock champion, Sandalphon, is no newcomer to the annual battle of the bands.

Instrumental band and first-time OctobeRock finalists The Hovercraft bagged the title of 1st runner-up.

Last October 27, ten (10) student bands from Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) battled it out for Php10,000 in cash and a championship title at MCL OctobeRock 2017, held at the MCL Covered Court.

The finalists were instructed to perform their own rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, then judged according to their musicality, band dynamics, creativity and originality, overall performance, and ticket votes.

Similar to last year, this year’s Battle of the Bands event was open to all bands as long as the majority of its members are bona fide students of MCL for this second term.

At the end of the night, OctobeRock 2014’s champion and 2016’s 2nd runner-up Sandalphon was hailed this year’s victor. The Hovercraft, an instrumental band, won 1st runner-up and Php 5,000; and Rhapsody placed as the 2nd runner-up.

More photos from the event are up on the official MCL Facebook page.
