WHAT IS ROCKSEARCH?




97.7 HTZ-FM's Rocksearch competition, in concert with Millstreet Brewery - Great Beer Lives Here - is a legendary hunt for the best new Rock band across Southern Ontario. In the past, we've helped launch some pretty awesome Canadian Rock acts who've gone on to be some of the biggest around, including Finger Eleven, The Trews, The Standstills and The Glorious Sons!
