Young musicians get the chance to perform their work live on stage at Rob da Bank’s Music Club on Tuesday.
The popular workshop event has been running for over nine months and is organised by the Bestival Foundation in partnership with the Isle of Wight Youth Trust.
The club allows 14 to 18 year olds the chance to hang out, be inspired, entertained and play all kinds of music.
There are also talks and Q&A’s with Rob da Bank and other music industry professionals on how to break into the business side of music.
On 30 October, a special performance slot is being added to the Club, with students being able to perform between 6:45pm and 7pm live on stage with a proper PA and lighting.
Paul Topping from IW Radio was so impressed with last month’s performances that ‘Rob da Bank’s Music Club Live Sessions’ are set to be broadcast on the station from November.
Other highlights include a songwriting workshop, run by Emmy J Mac and Buddy Carson, a session on radio interviewing and presenting skills with Sunshine Hospital Radio, along with DJ workshops, beatboxing, rapping, spoken word and lyric writing.
Rob da Bank said: “'I’m absolutely committed to the Island’s youth and making sure their talents don’t go unnoticed. If you’re 14-18 and want to learn about music - anything from playing instruments, to being a DJ or VJ in a club, or designing a flyer then get yourself down there! I’ll be taking register and if you’re not there I’ll know!”
