On Saturday 9th of April, The Bunker held a percussion workshop at the Winter Gardens in Sunderland. It involved djembe’s and guitars and was held in one of the exhibit rooms in the museum. Adrian Dunn and Ceiran Braddock invited people to join them in a circular seating area to play music on the instruments they had, the djembe’s were a crowd favorite and were easy to pick up and play, which made them particularly appealing to the young kids that were drawn in by the music, however some of the younger children found them to be a little bit scary, but Adrian and Ceiran’s charm always drew them in by the end.
The corner flag screamed sounds of the suburbs on Friday night as the Members made a return to sunderland playing a loud set of punk rock 1970’s classics.
The Northeast Guitar show made a return to the purpose-built event complex at Rainton Meadows Arena, with plenty Guitars and stalls to choose from!
I always nip myself when i think about all the years of Field Music that I’ve missed out on. As a teenager listening to the likes of The Futureheads and Frankie & The Heartstrings on repeat the Brewis brothers seemed to pass me by.
What started off as a night to watch one of the Ramones Drummers performing some classic Ramones tracks and a few of his own songs with his band, turned out to be a night of amazement!
Firstly if you know the Ramones then you must have heard a track from their 1984 album titled “Too Tough To Die” this is the time when Marky left the band due to alcoholism and Richie took his place on the drums; the man has always been known as a brilliant drummer and still lives up to it.
