Making music from rubbish, ‘the world’s first eco-band’ have played to audiences all over the world, including at Glastonbury, in front of Al Gore, and at the Champions’ League final in Paris. They’ve also appeared on Big Brother’s Little Brother and a British Gas TV advert.
Once their lives of domestic or industrial servitude are over, most discarded gas pipes, oil cans, buckets, hubcaps, dustbins, saucepans, supermarket trolleys and lengths of scaffolding are faced with a bleak life on a landfill site.
But Weapons of Sound have turned them into musical instruments and created a richly rewarding creative career for society’s unwanted waste.
Weapons of Sound build funk out of junk with resourcefulness and imagination.
The band stormed Glastonbury for three successive festivals, packing out a 2,000 seat venue. They have also performed at the National Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, and appeared on The Big Breakfast, Blue Peter, Live & Kicking and This Morning.
This is an explosive band with an enormous amount of creative energy.
and the Percussion Workshop.....
Using instruments as diverse as old gas pipes and hubcaps to the more traditional steel pans and samba drums, the Weapons of Sound Workshop encourages businesspeople of all ages to discover their latent musical talents. More importantly, it is an original way of demonstrating the power of teamwork.
Guests are either given a simple instrument to play in one huge orchestral rendition of a well-known hit, or rehearsed in groups of 10 - 25, each with three leaders, to perform a professional percussive song for their colleagues.
