Loop – Born In Brighton. GAK launches New Live Music Night in Brighton

GAK, the iconic music emporium based in North Road, Brighton, is delighted to have launched ‘Loop’ a new Live Music Night in Brighton that celebrates young, up-and-coming bands and musicians from the city.

The first Loop Night was held at The Dorset in Gardner Street on March 7th and featured four live acts from WaterBear, the College of Music: Xoe-Beth Solo performer, Jade Stanger Solo performer, Tallumen Trio, Caitlin McEvoy Duo.

GAK MD, Max Mckellar said “we’re delighted to have launched our Loop Live Music Nights at The Dorset. As part of our 30th birthday celebrations, we wanted to really celebrate our Brighton musical heritage by showcasing and supporting the next wave of young musicians from the city. Thanks to The Dorset for hosting our first night and to WaterBear for supplying the acts – the consensus was it was a brilliant night with a good turn out and we can’t wait for the next one!”

Jodie Amos, Head of Events at WaterBear said “Thanks so much to GAK for inviting and supporting the WaterBear musicians at their first Loop Night! It’s such a great opportunity for our artists to play live at local venues, and big shout out to GAK for supplying the amazing equipment and making it super easy. We’re looking forward to being involved again.”

Alongside the Loop Nights, GAK has also got other activities planned as part of their community outreach work, including teaming up with The Crew Club’s music hub in Whitehawk and supporting young musicians from the estate in their musical journey by supplying free, high-quality equipment to the venue and sponsoring music inspired events.

The Loop Nights will be on regularly at The Dorset, with other acts coming from local music colleges, as well as from the general public. Entry to watch is free and if you’re interested in participating, send in your enquiries to loopnights@gak.co.uk.
