On 1st April we are hosted another bands night, at Newcastle College’s Space Bar, it was a fantastic new venue for us just outside of the City Centre. The event was very successful and we will be hosting another there soon.
As part of the Jesmond Community Festival, we put on a gig for bands under 13 at the Jesmond Cricket Club. Esme opened the night by singing Hallelujah and playing the piano, followed by some more upbeat songs from Maxine. We also had a band from Rock Project Juniors with famous rock songs throughout the ages, as well as the Distance, who played songs by Imagine Dragons and one of their own compositions. Overall the venue was quite full, with around 80 people coming to listen. Ten young people performed.
Once again at Jesmond Cricket Club, the night was opened by Chloe Fisher, followed by the Senior Rock Project. Next we had The Earnest Search who had stepped in last minute because one of the original bands had dropped out. Ending in a improvised Jazz, blues jam with the headlining band Big Nothing. This lead perfectly onto our main band of the night. Around 100 people made up the audience and 10 young people played.
Freeze saw City Youth Music take over the Newcastle Student Union, with 5 brilliant bands making the night a memorable one.
