Livewire Rock Academy’s bi-annual charity concert returns to Bishops Stortford

16 May Livewire Rock Academy’s bi-annual charity concert returns to Bishops Stortford

Livewire Rock Academy are holding their bi-annual charity concert at Rhodes Arts Complex on Sunday 7th June.

The rock schools, who have outlets in Bishop’s Stortford, Great Dunmow, Saffron Walden and Epping will be showing off their talented students who will be playing classic and contemporary rock songs by bands such as White Stripes, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, Black Sabbath, The Automatic and many more.

Livewire is managed by the Bishop’s Stortford-based musician and song-writer Dean Austin, who leads the concert with his powerful vocals. The business is owned by Uncle Funk & The Boogie Wonderband frontman Simon Baker.

The event will also feature a short set by “Teenage Revolution”, the Great Dunmow-based four piece band who include Livewire students. Once again Livewire will be holding a “rock raffle” in the interval in aid of local Mencap charity Grove Cottage.

The rock school are looking for donations from local businesses to raffle and raise money. To offer a donation, please contact Simon at

Tickets for the event are priced at £7 each and can be bought from the Rhodes box office.
The concert will start at 6pm.

Free taster sessions are available at Livewire Rock Academy for adults and children who want to learn how to play electric guitar, bass and drums.

The schools offer a unique “jam session” as part of every lesson where students play together in a band format, a huge boost to their progress and development as a musician.

Livewire are also looking for young, talented guitarists and drummers to teach at their schools.
