School Band to Support Roberto Fonseca

Radical Steps, a school band from Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale, will be performing at Brewery Arts on Wednesday, 20 April, supporting Roberto Fonseca.

The band who are fans of the infamous Cuban pianist and Grammy-nominated performer will be playing for free in the Brewery Arts garden from 6.45pm.

“Having listened to loads of pianists, I find Roberto Fonseca stands out and is really interesting, with different things coming in with each bar,” said Gabriel Weber, 17, who plays drums in the band.

The band, which was originally formed three and half years ago, is made up of 12 students aged 11 to 18 who will be playing a variety of tracks including three composed entirely by the band.

After hearing how influenced the school band were by Roberto Fonseca, their teacher and mentor, Mr David Banfield, got in touch with us to help organise the performance. 

“The opportunity for them to play at a venue that is not the school hall, and to give the band performance exposure, particularly after lockdown, is super exciting,” said Mr Banfield.

We can’t wait to welcome the band on Wednesday and look forward to their performance!

Tickets for Roberto Fonseca are available. You can learn more and purchase tickets here.
