What a great turn-out for our launch party yesterday! Big thanks to everyone who came along. We’ll be blogging about it all and posting some photos soon enough but in the meantime, here’s Anne-Marie Atkinson from Pyramid of Arts’ D4 to tell you about their day:
We’re highly delighted to announce that Ultimate Thunder will be performing a short set in the early evening of our launch event on Thursday 18th June.
Ultimate Thunder are a Leeds based heavy metal band. They started around 4 years ago and they play all original material that they write on a weekly basis. To date they have supported The Fish Police, played at the Morley Christmas lights switch on, and played countless rocking gigs across Yorkshire with other great heavy metal bands.
They are heavily influenced by Iron Maiden, Metallica, Nirvana and The Fall. Their shows are often wild and highly unpredictable as they often play free form making up songs as they go. Four of the members happen to have a learning disability and they aim to empower other people with disabilities and encourage them to get involved with music or anything creative. Ultimate Thunder are supported by People In Action, who provide a tutor and rehearsal space for the band.
