As you may be aware by now, April is Limb Loss & Limb Difference Awareness Month (#LLLDAM) UK. The first of our announcements represents the exciting opportunity to join Bader’s Big Band…
Yes – we’re looking for musicians to join Bader’s Big Band, the UK’s only Big Band consisting of musicians who have a disability.
Since its inception in 2018, this inspiring band has performed in wonderful venues, museums and air shows across the country. Bader’s Big Band is now looking to grow and is seeking new musicians with either a physical disability or diagnosed mental condition.
Please use the contact details below for more information or to ask for an audition. Don’t miss this great opportunity to join Bader’s Big Band and to be part of a unique group of talented musicians that, in the words of Sir Douglas, set out to show that it’s what you can do that’s important.
Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t do this or that. That’s nonsense. Make up your mind […] then have a go at everything. Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader
