The Mix on TV

The TV show featuring The Mix and Rudely Interrupted, will be screened  on NDR 3s Hallo Niedersachsen, and will be shown from the 23.07 to the 27.07 at 07:30 PM.

Gifhorn Rocking for Inclusion

Gifhorn is a picturesque little town in the state Lower Saxony, the gig took place on the market place in the town centre. As was the case in Hannover both bands were making a political statement under the motto Rocking for inclusion. A major state minister responsible for people with special needs opened the event. A crowd of around 500 gave both bands a major welcome and the joint was rocking. As in Hannover the event was a success and plans are being made to do it again in 2013.


Hannover Stephanstift 12.07.2012

This gig was the first  of it's kind in Hannover. It was all about the inclusion of people with special needs, This mandate was passed by the UN back in 2009 and both bands are advocates of this UN ruling. Around 400 people turned out to give their support and The Mix and Rudely Interrupted pulled out all the stops to ensure that a good time was had by all. Sam the Rudely frontman getting the people in the mood before he even got up onto the stage. The event organiser Ingtraud Steffenhagen was so happy with the response, she has already decided to do it again next year.

The Mix and Rudely Interrupted take Lingen by storm

Three quality bands, Shit Happens, The Mix and Rudely Interrupted played to a sold out house and gave the fantastic audience more than their moneys worth. Shit happens the local band kicked off the show and paved the the way for the following acts with a great set. The Mix power show was met with great acclaim and the hungry audience just wouldn't let them leave the stage. The Mix pen most of their own songs and also play a few classic German popsongs. Bringing up the rear Rudely Interrupted with their really beautiful and catchy songs Rory Burnside really writes good lyrics. Rohan Brookes very own style of guitar riffs complimenting Rory's keyboard licks. Josh and Sean as solid as a rock on Drums and Bass. Sam the co frontman is such an eyecatcher a real entertainer. A great time was had by all.
