Drum Prodigies, Drum Covers and a Celebration of Ayrshire’s Talent
We have quite a few hires this weekend. First of all the Yamaha NU1X is going to the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr on Friday for ‘The Ayrshire Lads.’ The Ayrshire Lads is a celebration of the various finalists of Britain's TV talent shows hailing from Ayrshire. It includes Jai Mcdowall (BGT Winner), The MacDonald Brothers (4th place – X Factor), Jeremy Levif (Semi finalist – The Voice 2021), and Blair Gilmour (Semi finalist – the Voice Kids 2020). The Ayrshire lads will be performing various songs from their careers so far and will be hosted by Glasgow Comedian and presenter Des Clarke.
Saturday is a day of drum hires. From the celebration of older bands to a performance from one of the best new musicians of today. We have our Pearl Masters kit going to SWG3 on Saturday for Look-A-Like tribute event. The night brings some of the UK’s best tribute bands together for a huge indoor day festival to celebrate a whole era of music and culture. Some of the cover bands include ABBA, Queen, Oasis and The Beatles.
Prior to that, on Saturday morning we have our Ludwig Classic Maple Drum Kit going to the BBC. It's our second hire for the kids TV show Saturday Morning Mashup. The show will feature an interview and performance from drum prodigy Nandi Bushell. Nandi Bushell is an amazing talent, and at only 11 years old has already taken the world by storm. She is not just good at playing the drums for her age but as good as some of the best drummers in the world today. She has played with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and has even performed on stage with the Foo Fighters in front of a sold out stadium. She has a great Youtube channel where she performs covers and meets some of the worlds best musicians. We are very excited that she will be using our Ludwig Kit this weekend.
