Opihi College rockers “The Bigfoots” have been invited to perform at the 2020 Rock Shop Bandquest as a guest band for three nights in Christchurch on the 9th, 10th and 11th of November this year. Every year a group is chosen from previous winners or finalists from the senior Smokefree Rockquest to play in the top slot of the evening in the junior Bandquest event.

Reef Brazendale, Luke Smith and Liam Pelvin are Opihi Colleges answer to Nirvana. They are a loud, fast and punchy three piece band with plenty of hooks and memorable melodies. They recently rated in the top twenty of NZ bands and were one of only two bands from the South Island to make it to the finals selection round.
The Bigfoots are a hard working group. They regularly travel to towns around the South Island seeking venues to play in. This will be their first truly professional show with a capacity crowd expected at all three nights of the Canterbury finals.
