NEW HERE?

Hello lovely person!

We’re Sound Advice and once a month we run Acoustic Sundays, a fluffy community music all-dayer that is, if anything, *too* friendly, welcoming and talented. A chilled day of super-excellent hot and cold running music, our mission is to bring you, the charming and delightful public wonderful sounds you might not previously have heard without having to pay through the nose and remortgage your kidneys for the privilege. If you have socks then they you should prepare to have them blown off (gently). Come say hello!

July 2015

On 5th July, the Acoustic Sundays team descended on St Peter's Crypt, De Beauvoir to hold their 'Midsummer Gala' with all of it's festival vibes (rain included!)


The Acoustic Sunday team spent May and June busy planning the Midsummer Gala event in a bid to bring you the first of this summer's outdoor community events. With a mention hand from the guys at TimeOut London and the Islington Tribune, we were thrilled to see and meet lots of new faces adding to our always beautiful and discerning audience.

Following a rather rainy morning, we made the decision to hold the event outside in Northchurch Terrace and the sun shone for a few hours while people descended on Acoustic Sunday from all corners of lovely London town! Once we were all set, and our lovely new banner (did you see it?) was in place, the afternoon kicked off with our open mic hour, followed by a performance from 17 year olds 'The Piano Twins'. Steve Proctor closely followed with his 'Moviescript Endng' and then came the beautiful Lauren Lucille.

British weather being what it is, this is when (of course) the heavens opened any poor Lauren  had ton grab her guitar and run inside while the team dashed towards the sound equipment! After a brief pause in affairs, we were all set up inside the crypt and back on track. We'd like to thank every single one of you who helped carry the kit / tables / ginger beer back downstairs for us - we were humbled by how helpful our entire audience were and that help was massively appreciated!

Once in the crypt, Lauren, Lauren was followed by the fab Lewis Barfoot with Third Uncle finishing off the night like pros.

As always, a big thank you to our musicians and amazing audience,   2Fingers for frying up fabulous food all afternoon and to the rest of the volunteers for all their hard work in managing the bar, filming the music and running up and down the steps with food and orders!  Not forgetting, of course, our MC Mr James Ross and our brilliant sound man Ed Silliars (hope your kit survived it's ordeal)!

Hope to see you all at Acoustic Sunday August where we'll be having our very own 'Jam Sandwich'!
