Band factory is back! Our biggest and best music event of the year is back for round two of 2022. Beginning on Monday, October 17th, we’re inviting you along to a week-long, unforgettable, musical experience that’s suitable for any style of musician.
Wondering if band factory is for you? If you’re a young person, between the ages of 12 and 18, and you can play an instrument (any instrument at all; we’ve even had bagpipe players before!) then you’re the perfect fit. Beginning on Monday October 17th, you’ll first be introduced to our team, and the wonderful Pryde Kilwinning who will be mentoring you across the week, and then your bands will be formed. From there you’ll spend the next couple of days deciding on your setlist, practising and having a jam with your new band. To celebrate and showcase your hard work and practise; at the end of the week you’ll be playing a set at our Beer Hall mainstage!
It’s a great opportunity for young musicians. Not only to showcase their talents and perform infront of a live audience; but also to make some musically minded friends. Or maybe even be part of the Garnock Valley’s next biggest band! We’ve seen many successful musicians and bands come through our band factory project; and you could be next. So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now! Spaces are limited so to avoid disappointment we advice you book in as soon as you can. The full weeks worth of activities is only £20 per person.
Jam sessions will run from 10am – 3pm and the gig will take place on Saturday 22nd October, time TBC. Bring a packed lunch for your jam sessions (or pop into Mocha Jaks if you fancy).
We’ll be taking regular photos and videos of both the jam sessions and the gig performance. Please let us know well in advance if you wish to not be photographed or filmed. We also have spare equipment available if you would like to partake but don’t have an instrument of your own. However; these are limited and we ask that you have a basic level of experience of playing the instrument. For any questions or queires please contact us at 01505 228141 or our music project lead Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org
