I have had the pleasure to work with Impact (based down in West London) for a number of years including many wonderful shows they have staged. The video below gives an example of where I was able to bring my knowledge of live looping into the world of visual technology which allowed the service users to create their own audio and visual experience.
But this week there will be a chance for me to venture to one of my favourite venues with a band that has come from working with these driven and talented individuals.
Over 2014 and 15 we put together a band called the ‘good ol boys’ as a part of a wild west set play we were working on. This grew into a band called ‘The Impact’. We went on to write and record our own album ‘In Our World’ which was released last year.
Since the release of the album the band have been keen to play more gigs and further a field. So I contacted my friends at the wonderful venue Club 85 and they have booked the band in for this Friday (2nd March -2018).
Entry will be £5 and the band will perform for 45 mins aswell as other acts.
Come down and support this great and unique project.
It has been a true pleasure to be able to work with Impact Outreach Network and Day Centre over the past many months while I have been off the road.
Wonderful staff and service users.
At the end of this month between the 24th -28th April there will be a rare chance to attend the Impact show which will include music, dance and live art.
This will also be my final involvement with them before my European tour kicks off.
What is extra special about this show (Hyper) is that it will involve all the subjects taught coming together in a performance that will not so much have a narrative but will showcase several pieces pulled together over the year.
