Assembly featuring Backspace, Macroscope, Growth Spurt and The Last Programme
15th September 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm£2
We over 18’s can all remember the angst of discovering the gig you have been waiting an age for is at a venue with a lower age limit, meaning you can’t join the party. I can only imagine the greater frustration caused when you are part of a talented young band and find it hard to get venues to host you because you are too young to legally consume the rider of a crate of red stripe. Even when you do get a slot at a venue, you might find your mates and peers can’t see you play.
This was the dilemma facing a couple of talented local bands, Guiseley’s Backspace and Macroscope from Pontefract; how to get more gigs that both they and their supporters can attend. The managers of these two bands Ian Addie and Graham Hyde have taken the thorny issue on head first by forming Step 1 Promotions to bring live music to under 18’s at an affordable price and at a transport friendly time slot.
