You may recall we have a regular new feature at Bmin meetings sharing examples of networking successes (with a prize draw and promotion on the Bmin website). In a great example from Bmin member Rana Dildar Singh, here is the new single from his local act RSVP Bhangra called ‘I Must”. The collaboration is a Bhangra-ballet video, working with Bristol Ballet dancers. This has been produced with international markets in mind – UK, Europe, East India, Pakistan, Canada, USA & Australia and Rana is abroad right now promoting the band and single. We wish him and the band every success

Well it’s another month already but lots to cover as usual and a great chance to meet up with all kinds of people from all areas of the local music scene and beyond. Everyone gets a chance to say who they are and what they do and this month there is no guest speaker so plenty of time for some hard core networking. See you there 🙂

Lots of exciting stuff to tell you about PLUS we have a special guest speaker in Deputy Mayor Estella Tincknell discussing the Bristol Council’s plans for Arts & Culture – with plenty of opportunity to ask those questions you have been waiting for.

Members of Bmin have been helping me out over the past 2 years to record and produce a concept album of songs covering the human tragedy of The Great War 1914-1918. It is called The Imperial Plan and the band set up for the project is called The Fable.
Inspired by the views of Harry Patch, The Last Fighting Tommy and the musical influences throughout my own life, I am proud to say the album features the amazing work of several members of Bmin, all of whom have been extremely generous with their time and expertise.
I am now at the final stages of production and mixing/mastering so have set up a crowdfunding campaign to help me complete the project. Check out the details and video here The Imperial Plan Fundsurfer Campaign
