Nuborn success at the Corn Hall
The first ever Nuborn showcase was staged at the Corn Hall on February 5th, with six bands all of primary or secondary school age displaying their musical talent.
The event was a phenomenal success with well over 400 people queuing up and down Cirencester's Market Place to see the bands perform. Families, school friends and music lovers all turned up to see the youngsters play.
Cotswold District Council Events Officer Rik Husdan said: "It was a fantastic night. Every band put their hearts on the line and produced an event that will be talked about in Cirencester for some time to come."
Sarah Evans, mother of Hard-Drive's Lewis Evans said, "All the bands were great and received fabulous receptions from the crowd. The Corn Hall should definitely think doing it all again. Hard-Drive have never played to such a big crowd and just enjoyed every minute!"
From Panic, who opened the night, to the awesome guitar play of Hard-Drive and Salakin, to the powerful vocals of the lead singer in Pantha, every band showed that there is a massive amount of musical talent in and around Cirencester.
Rik added: "I could not have asked for more from these bands. Every band that took to the stage owned it like real rock stars. These bands have shown the passion and hunger that youngsters have for all music, especially rock, whether it's to play or just to listen. They are, without doubt a credit to themselves, their parents and to Cirencester."
The quality of the performances has led to Hard-Drive opening at Unborn on Friday 17th March, which is the supreme Cirencester rock night. They will be playing alongside a line-up including Devious Steve, Absolution and Morph.
Nuborn is taking place across the Cotswold District. The next will be held at Fairford Leisure Centre on March 5th with doors opening at 6.15pm for a 6.30 start; followed by Tetbury and Chipping Campden (dates to be confirmed).
Tickets on the door only for Nuborn are priced at £2 each for adults / £1 each for Under 16's.
