The competition sees MPs nominate the best live musicians and music venue from their constituencies. Now in its second year, Rock The House has received 165 MP nominations – including Prime Minister David Cameron and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Jeremy Hunt.
The finalists will be announced on May 23rd, with the live finals being held on May 30th at the Bedford in Balham – joint winner last year in the live music venue category. Winners will be invited to play a live set on the terrace of the House of Commons in the evening, which will include a full backline of Orange amps.
Commenting on the involvement of Orange Amplification Mike Weatherley MP said: "We’re delighted to have Orange on board, particularly with their strong British heritage dating back to the '60s with their products being used by international music legends."
Cliff Cooper, CEO of Orange added: “We are very proud to be working with Mike in supporting the Rock The House competition, which is both raising the awareness of the live music industry and also providing a superb platform to showcase the best of upcoming British talent.”
