‘Maximo Tweeting’

Connor Wells and Cameron Bradbury performed a short acoustic set at the North Herts College Higher Education graduation ceremony evening to a packed hall of 350 people.

After the event they uploaded their youtube footage including ‘Apply some pressure’ by Maximo Park – they then got a tweet from Paul Smith the lead singer of the band praising them for their version!

Freshers Fayre 2013

Freshers Fayre

Despite the terrible weather, we managed to pull some great, enthusiastic crowds in for the North Herts College Freshers Fayre. Year 2 band “Four Piece” brightened the mood of everyone with some funky, crunchy covers of Robbie Williams and Don Broco songs.

It was a great opportunity for new freshers and students to witness work in progress within the academy and a really productive way to kick off the new year!
