Well, the gig I was promoting on my website and Facebook page called Bands at the Baird has now been and gone and what an event it was. The weather was glorious and after a fun filled day of games and races at Hansel's own version of the Commonwealth Games called, 'Games on the Green', it was time for their own version of T in the Park, 'Bands at the Baird'. The Baird Centre is a new building that is part of Hansel Village, a charity that works with adults with varying support needs. Both events, 'Games on the Green' and 'Bands at the Baird' are just another example of some of the wonderful things that Hansel does to get everyone invloved and having fun. While I may be biased when I say this, as I work here, but I really do think this is a great place to work and feel proud to be part of an organisation that promotes independence and empowerment of all adults with a learning disability.
I arrived as the final band, Rough Cut, were playing to the crowd who were still partying after all the events of the day. The sun was still out but it had cooled nicley enought to enjoy sitting out, chilling after my long day at work to an array of upbeat, popular covers of rock songs such as, Journey's, 'Don't Stop Believing', and The Proclaimers, '500 Miles'. I missed the first few bands but judging by the staff and clients who were still dancing and singing away I can only assume the night went well. After the band had finished I asked for a few photo's and explained about my website and my love of all music but especially my love of finding and promoting local bands wether original or covers. A great day was clearly had by all. Rough Cut pictured below.
