A brief history of WIRED..
There have been many great acoustic sessions in Broadstairs over the years…and we had all jammed and listened at sometime. But, some of us players felt the time had come to “plug in.” Back in 2005 Steve King and Kenn Wards started investigating if such a session could be a possibility. A venue was found and the rest as they say "is history." WIRED started life above the Rose Inn in Broadstairs, early 2006 and moved on to the Bradstow Mill at the beginning of 2008. After discussion with the musicians and audiences it was decided to move to the Lord Nelson. The Lord Nelson is now proving to be a popular venue with musicians and audiences.
WIRED? tell me more..
WIRED is an amplified music session which means that all players; be they Electric, Acoustic, Electronic, Wind, or Percussion based will be able to play together with the right balance and volume and actually be heard by the audience and the musicians that you are playing with!
The session is open to all players and anybody who wants to come and listen. “Wired” continually evolves. “Wired” is an experiment. “Wired” will adapts to the needs and desires of its participants.. Both players and audience have an input. “Wired” has been running from the beginning of 2006 and has seen many performers of all ages and from almost all styles of music. We welcome players of all levels of experience.
Interested in playing?
A house PA is provided to cover the needs of vocalists and those of you with acoustic instruments. If you play an electric/electronic instrument bring your own amplification… remember this is a pub gig.. so a 100W Marshall amp stack maybe a little impractical… please get in touch to discuss what you might want to do.
