Recruitment open for 2019
Interested in becoming a drummer with us? Find out more at our Liverpool Open Evening on Wednesday 9th October 2019, 6pm - 9pm.
This event will give you the opportunity to come down and meet some of our band, learn a little bit about what Batala is and where our music comes from and most importantly....have a go at drumming!
Numbers are limited, so please complete the form on the link below as soon as possible and no later than 9pm on Friday 27th September 2019.
Once we have received your registration information we will email you to confirm your spot and send further details about the day.
Where is the event taking place?
We currently have two regular rehearsal spaces in North and South Liverpool. Once numbers are confirmed for the Open Evening, we'll let you know where it will happen!
I have no musical experience - does that matter?
Absolutely not! Many of our current members joined the band with no previous experience of drumming. What you do need is commitment, a positive attitude and respect for others. A good sense of humour is also essential.
We are an inclusive organisation run by volunteers and we encourage applications from all members of the community. Drumming is a physical activity and does require a level of fitness and stamina. There is no specified upper age range, however all players must be over 18 years.
Will I need to bring anything?
No we will provide all equipment, you’ll just need to wear something comfortable for drumming and to bring some water to keep hydrated.
How much does the Open Evening cost?
This initial introductory event is free. Subsequent sessions for newbie school will cost £5 per session / £3 unwaged. Once you are a full member, the membership fees are £15 per month or £8 per month for unwaged.
What happens after the Open Evening?
Our next ‘Newbie School’ will start on Wednesday 16th October 2019 and last for approximately ten weeks. We will invest in those who show an interest in our community values and can commit to rehearsing and, in time, performing with Batala at our many events.
