The Music Project – High School Band Competition

Andrew Gardiner and Raquel Pinder visited the Star 106 studio on Monday, August 28, 2017, to promote The Music Project, a high school band competition.

The Music Project consists of all high-schools in the Bahamas, and it pairs Bahamian icons and influentials with students, according to Gardiner. The students are able to learn about the music industry as well as improve their skills.

The main goal of The Music Project is to place these students on the big stage.

The winner of the competition will receive a summer scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where they’ll be able to choose programs that best suit their interests.

Registration begins on September 1st, 2017 and ends on October 13th, 2017.

The main event is on February 17, 2018, at Botanical Gardens.

Soctiabank’s Annual HIV Testing Day 2017

Scotiabank representative, Nikera Symonette (right), and Nurse Braniksa Lewis (left) stopped into the 106 Hits studio on Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 to speak with Greg, Tony, and Dwayne about the upcoming HIV Testing Day. The annual event, hosted by Scotiabank, will take place in Rawson Square on Friday, June 30th, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Hosts of The Fix, Tessa and Sawyer Boy, will cover the event from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. 106 Hits encourages the public to come out and get tested.

The process takes less than an hour, and there will be counseling provided for all participants before and after testing. The post-counseling process will vary depending on your results. Fortunately, there is no need to fear an injection because all the test requires is a quick prick of the finger.

Join Tessa and Sawyer Boy down at Rawson Square on Friday, June 30th and know your status in less than an hour!
