Announced: Brum Rocks Live with Misfits Music
Via Helen for Misfits Music
January 2024: BRUM ROCKS, from Misfits Music, is an opportunity for hundreds of amateur musicians and singers and all rockstar wannabes to come together for a once-in-a-lifetime rock concert at Forum Birmingham on 14th July 2024
Misfits Music Foundation are running one-off BRUM ROCKS workshops and events across Birmingham and the Black Country as a warm-up for the big concert planned for this summer. Workshops are FREE thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund People’s Project.
There are several ways budding rock stars can get involved:
Sign up for a FREE BRUM ROCKS workshop – taking place at Northfield Arts Forum (on 31st Jan, 21st Feb, 6th and 20th March – all sessions start 10am), Great Bridge Library in Tipton (24th Jan, 28th Feb all sessions start 7pm) and The Flapper in Birmingham (7th Feb, 13th March all sessions start at 7pm). With more dates and venues being added all the time.
No musical experience is required – you don’t need to be a music expert or even be able to read sheet music, Misfits Music will provide song sheets with chords and lyrics. Attendees just need to bring their voice or instrument – anyone is welcome: singer, guitarist, drummer, bassist or any other instrument.
Members of existing Choirs or Community Groups – knitting clubs, cycling groups, WI Groups, Social Groups and more – that fancy a one-off rock music workshop, can also contact the BRUM ROCKS team to invite a workshop leader along to their group meeting for a bespoke rock workshop, and be part of the concert in the summer. Now is the time to dust off those guitars and finally bring that shower singing to life.
Rob Jones, Artistic Director, Misfits Music Foundation said:
Whether you want to come along to one of our BRUM ROCKS workshops or want us to come along to your existing choir or group – whatever that might be – we will provide experienced, friendly instructors – and it really doesn’t matter how much or how little experience you might have. It’s your chance to be part of a once in a lifetime rock concert – we can’t wait for hundreds of budding rock stars to rock out next summer in Birmingham.”
The BRUM ROCKS LIVE! concert will take place at Forum Birmingham on 14th July 2024 with tickets on sale soon. Forum Birmingham has during its many lifetimes been host to Carter, PJ Harvey, Shed Seven, The Charlatans and Ian Brown, and is currently an events space championing ground-breaking music, live comedy, hosting a diverse range of club nights, a fitting venue for a rock concert like no other.
Billy Chauhan, Forum Birmingham said:
Our venue has a long history of welcoming rock stars to Birmingham and so we are delighted to be hosting BRUM ROCKS LIVE! a one-off concert this summer.
As a purpose-built music and events venue with a history that dates back to the 1960s, we can’t wait to welcome hundreds of budding rock stars through our doors.”
