As part of the Amped youth mentoring project eight secondary school bands from Dunedin and one from Balclutha are contributing to a compilation album, which it is hoped will be released later this month.
Amped co-ordinator Jessica Young said the project was about using music as a platform to promote the reduction of alcohol-associated harm among young people.
This was done through putting on alcohol-free all-ages gigs at Dunedin venues and running workshops on songwriting, sound engineering, performance and recording, Ms Young said.
"It's a great way to celebrate our young people and help them achieve their potential."
This year it was decided it would be a good idea to record the bands involved in the project and make a compilation album.
Among the bands to record for the album was John George MacLeod's Melon Platoon. The Kavanagh College band, described as playing "satirical funk music", were in the studio yesterday.
Amped is holding an all-ages alcohol-free gig at the Dunedin Musos' Club tonight from 7pm.
