The people of the northern town of Bolton often speak of past days and nights of creative and artistic flair. The Charlatans and

A group of likeminded and enthusiastic folk who want to support local talent, embrace the history of this wonderful town and develop a forum for creativity be that music, art, photography, craft, poetry, film and everything in-between.

Yet everything needs a starting point so on Saturday 14th November Sound Social presents an all day event at Historic Commerce House for your audible and viewing pleasure. We’ve had an amazing response from artists, musicians and poets, support from local community network Antz Junction and the wonderful Bolton business Carrs pasties is kindly sponsoring the event.

On offer is a smorgasbord of talent ranging from Feed The Kid (who have had an amazing year playing Kendal Calling and Ramsbottom festival amongst their many dates), Apache Viking (USA and Newcastle punky funky and electric), The Jade Assembly, Gaz from Our Fold, Steve Warwick, James Holt, electronica from Leeds based legends Quip, Manchester’s finest acid punk garage band Duds, Revolution in Paradise and The Reveres (selling out everywhere from Hamburg to Night and Day!).

Alongside these seasoned performers, the Rock It project, which supports young and growing talent with youth mentoring, also have three bands performing and money raised from this event will go towards carrying on the Rock It project as well as supporting Cinebox/ CIC, a community based organisation that inspires young and old to use film as a proactive medium.
In addition to the music there is Poetry from Oliver Lomax and Jim Byrne, Photography exhibition from Nik Bryant, Art, Craft and Drama workshops, there really is something for all the family. The event is all ages and ticketed with wristbands so you may come and go all day, corkage fee for adults and refreshments on sale for our younger crowd.

Enjoy, be Sound Social and let’s all have a great day and night.

Mixing it up: Rock It! and The Halle join forces

As part of our work as BBC Performing Arts Fund Community Music Winners for 2013, Rock It! worked on four recordings with professional musicians from The Manchester Halle orchestra. You can now listen to these original works on our Soundcloud page.

The work took place over in spring 2014 and involved Halle musicians Dave Hext drums, Ken Brown trumpet, Dale Culliford cello, Katherine Small flute, Bea Schwimmer basso; Rock It! musicians: Harry Jones drums, James Holt guitar/vocals/keyboards, Lois Holmes vocals, Isaac Walbrooke guitar, Imogen Connell-Howard bass guitar, Reece Holmes drums, Cameron Jones drums/vocals.

The project was led by Rock It! Music Leaders Daniel Lever and James Holt, and Halle musician Bea Schwimmer.

The results are impressive, involving just 2 full days working with the Halle musicians to finalise and record the tracks live at DOA Studios with producer Ant Booth. Please feel free to let us know what you think via

Soundcloud or by emailing us at
