A few weeks ago the members of The Outsiders band entered their rehearsal room in the Day Centre to set up and run through their set-list, but this particular afternoon was a little more special than before. Nervous sweat trickled down the band member’s foreheads as the crowd - staff, volunteers, friends and the general public - began to sweep in to watch the band play and be one of their first to get their hands on The Outsiders’ first CD.
A full day in a private recording studio, hours of editing and weeks of practice, had led to a product the band could hold proudly in their hands and share with friends. The crowd joined in singing and lined up afterwards to rub shoulders with the stars and get a signed copy of the CD. The drummer summed it up, “This is what it’s all about. I loved looking straight into the eyes of the people when I was playing. I loved every minute of it”.
The Outsiders CD is available for $10 through our Merchandise Page or at Hutt St Centre's reception. All proceeds from purchases, will go back to the band, and help pay for future gigs, music tutoring or recording time.
