Junk Band to Launch Our Big Event

INCREDIBLE junk percussion band from Plymouth, Weapons of Sound will open our awards on November 19.

Hailed as the UK's greenest band, Weapons of Sound thump out their brand of percussion on an array of unusual instruments – from shopping trolleys and plastic barrels to gas pipes and scaffolding poles.

The band is sure to start our awards ceremony in energetic style.

Travelling all over the world, the group dazzles and motivates audiences with its show. It also inspires people of all ages with its workshops.

A spokesman for the group said: "Impossible to pigeon-hole, Weapons of Sound's back catalogue has broad appeal with drum and bass and break beat-style records, followed by blues and swing numbers – all impossible to sit still to.

"Since 1993, Weapons Of Sound has performed both nationally and internationally in more than 2,000 gigs and workshops – in stadiums, theatres, large festivals, community and street festivals, carnivals, clubs, cabaret stages and street corners, as well as a whole host of prestigious corporate events across the UK and the world.

"Most recently Weapons of Sound are honoured to have been approached by the United Nations!"

Originally based at Estover Soundhouse, Weapons of Sound separated from the community college to form their own limited company in October 2006.

After 16 years they continue to be a thriving band offering a wide range of educational activities with children of all ages and abilities to corporate entertainment for high-profile companies.

Highlights for the group include performing at the Royal Albert Hall to a star-studded audience which included HRH Prince Charles and Al Gore, in 2007.

The group has also entertained 85,000 people at Twickenham rugby stadium to open the Heineken Cup Final, also in 2007.
