We love, love, LOVE performing. Whether it's in our own space with the Backbeat family, at our annual back alley show or at an external gig, there's nothing we love more than a packed room of fans cheering on our students.
Our shows are open to anyone and everyone - including non-Backbeat students and families - and many of them are free admission. Coming to a show is actually a great way to see and experience what we're all about and why we're different. Plus we love meeting new friends!
