Bring on the Autumn

Banda Bacana have had a fabulous summer, festivals, parties, weddings and our favourite pub gigs!  And now we’re getting ready for the autumn season with some new world beats and eclectic lyrics.  After a bank holiday stonker at The Heights in Llanberis (thanks to the team at The Heights and everyone that came along – especially those dressed to impress!) the next gig on the calendar is Bangor Apple Fest on 15th September in the Syrcus Circus big top on ‘The Old Bowling Green’ in the centre of Bangor next to the Town Hall.  It starts at 12pm to 6pm.  Entrance to the entertainment tent: £3/£1.50 for children under 10. The Bacanas are on at 3pm in the Big Top – check out the full program on Facebook

Mid Summer Madness

We are happy to that we are now running the latest version of WordPress.  And as usual the lovely folk in the WordPress community kept us on the right track. As well as running new software on our website Banda Bacana is enjoying the summer!

We’ve been invited to play at some lovely events. Botanical Beats in Treborth Botanical Gardens was great!  As usual the event was a colourful mix of music, food, art and crafts with a lovely friendly vibe,  raising money and awareness about the Gardens and the work that goes on there. The photo above is taken by Edyta of Emagine Pictures. See more of Emagine’s wonderful photos of botanical beats on Facebook Another highlight was our first foray down the Conwy Valley bringing Afro Latin dance grooves to Trefriw Village Hall.  Great night, great crowd! We’d love to go back and play there!

Festival season is upon us.  And you may find the BBs at a wedding, party or beach near you! Check out our Myspace or connect with us on Facebook for up to date info 🙂
