From The Judges

"It's amazing to have so many young kids who are this enthusiastic about making music, and the competition aspect of Bandquest is driving all of them to improve - There are now hundreds of awesome 9–12 year old bands around the country performing at a high level. The future is exciting”
- Will McGillivray, Nomad

"I really loved the fact that 2K16 put a lot of effort into making these songs their own. They were clearly comfortable on stage, they sounded great together and they were enjoying themselves. True rockstar" - Jamie McDell–5LBbHNWak9M3A5Qy1CN250MGM/view?ts=57c39a5c
