Livewire Rock Academy gigs in Bishop's Stortford and Saffron Walden for its adult and child students
Livewire Rock Academy, the Herts and Essex-based rock school, will be staging three live performances for its students in October.
Two Friday night pub gigs for adult students will take place at the Kings Arms in Market Hill, Saffron Walden, on the 8th and at the Cock Inn at Hockerill in Bishop’s Stortford on the 29th. Both start at 8.30pm.
Admission is free and there will be a chance to “have a go” on an electric guitar or drum kit after the gigs for anyone interested in joining the school.
Younger Livewire students will have their turn on stage at South Mill Arts in Stortford on Sunday October 10 at 5pm. Tickets are £7.
They will be playing classic and contemporary rock covers by bands such as Green Day, Foo Fighters, The Clash, The Undertones, Oasis, Neil Young and many more.
A “Rock Raffle” will be held at the show with all proceeds going to Grove Cottage, the home of Mencap in Stortford. Livewire welcomes prize donations.
Livewire Rock Academy teaches drums, bass guitar and electric guitar at its schools in Stortford, Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow and Epping.
They are owned and managed by Uncle Funk's Disco Inferno frontman Simon Baker, who also fronts the adult concerts on vocals and bass.
The schools give children and adults the opportunity to learn to play an instrument in a sociable, stress-free environment where they can progress at their own pace and then perform their newly-acquired skills in the rock jam at the end of every lesson.
There are currently slots in all the schools for anyone wishing to learn. To book a free taster lesson or to donate a raffle prize, call Simon on 07941 142779 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
