WHAT IS ROCKSEARCH?:
97.7 HTZ-FM's Rocksearch competition, in concert with Cameron’s Brewing – Doing it right since ’97 – 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, The Glorious Sons, Crownlands and Foolproof!
