ABOUT BIG LOST BAND
The Big Lost Band debuted as part of the 2019 Lost Lands festival. In only four rehearsals over the weeks leading up to the gig, the core creative team pulled together a 136 strong band of musicians made up of families who were attending the event. 70% children and young people. Playing 20 drum kits, 40 guitars, 10 basses and assorted whistles, saxes, keyboards, buckets and coconuts. Plus a big choir. It was a massive hit. Over two week-long visits the key creatives will recruit a 75 strong team of mostly young people – who can range from absolute beginners to young guns – and rehearse up a set of songs. One day before the gig at O'Donnell Gardens the touring band members arrive and the whole band attend an epic rehearsal. The following day a pretty much guaranteed huge audience experience rock heaven.
