Our Artist Spotlight blogs are a weekly feature where we focus on one of our performers, giving you the chance to find out more about the people behind the performances, and offering an insight into the world of entertainment.
We all met at Brockenhurst College where we studied performing arts together, this was the start of Junk but personal skills have come into use creating, directing and managing the group.
My favourite thing about working in the events industry is the adrenaline rush you get from being on stage has got to be the highlight of woking in the industry.
One of the best experiences has to be the Event Awards. We were entered into the awards by Contraband for the
‘Act Of Year award’. Just being nominated was fantastic but then we were chosen to perform on the evening up against the other two finalists at the Round house in London.
The worst experience by far has got to be sleeping in a cold van in Blackpool with only a can of rice pudding for dinner while we were on a small theatre tour, its not all ‘rock and roll’
The idea came about for a dance exam at college; we are not the best of dancers so we decided to base movement on creating beats and sounds with rubbish. From a very basic idea in college the act has just grown and grown with new ideas being drummed up all the time.
The entertainers admire the most are comedians as a whole as I admire the confidence to go on stage and entertain a crowd of people alone.
It’s very difficult to get the balance as most of our work takes us out the country, so any time were home we spend as much time as possible with friends and family.
Being a very different act its hard for people to understand exactly what we do, we make our act stretch out to all ages, nationalities and themes, and with an act like us seeing and hearing is believing as everything we do is live and we deliver an experience.
