We know there are talented musicians out there in Scout and Guide units who currently can’t use that skill in the Swindon Gang Show. That’s why we are very excited to announce something new for the 2017 show: Rock Band.
What is Rock Band?
We are looking to form a Scout and Guide band to play a short set on the Wyvern stage during the next show in April 2017.
How will it work?
We are asking for those that are interested to sign up here, to see if we can put a viable band together. Please let us know what instruments you play and what level you are and any other relevant information. Once we have some people signed up, we will arrange some try outs and work from there.
What instruments are you looking for?
Usual suspects include Drums, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards as well as vocalists. But we can take this in whatever ever direction we need to. If you play brass, we can do some ska. If you play banjo we can do some folk, if you play strings we can use it use.
What songs will we play?
Once the band is formed, you guys will get to pick what you want to play, but the production team will have to sign off on the choices!
Who can take part?
This is open to Scouts, Guides, Explorers, Senior Section, Young Leaders and Network from Swindon North, Swindon Ridgeway Districts and Wiltshire North Guiding.
Do I need to be part of the Cast?
No! Rock band will run separately to the main show, although you will be performing on stage during the show. Rehearsals will be a at different times and you can just be part of rock band, although those in the main cast are also very welcome to be involved.
So if you are interested, sign up. If you know people who are interested, spread the word. Any questions then get in touch.
