Launch Night

You are currently browsing the archive for the Launch Night category.

In June we officially launched Panda Studio at Arch 897 in London Bridge. Admittedly it was a bit late but it was definitely worth the wait.

The night kicked off with free booze, canapes and a welcome speech that made Bush junior look like an astro-physicist! What can I say, I was nervous. We had prints hanging on walls and massive images were projected just above the stage area. Ghostcat opened the night in style, all credit to poor Ali who was amazing despite being jet lagged and run down. The fiery quartet set the trend as they set the place alight. Here are some shots of Ghostcat and you can listen to their stuff HERE

Just when the dust started to settle, rockabilly master J D Smith burst onto the stage and got everyone bopping and jumping! You would never imagine that just one man and his guitar could make so much noise and send a room-full of people into such a frenzy! Check out his energetic pieces HERE

Last on were Warehouse Republic, a relatively new band that serves rock’n'roll with a hearty portion of beats – streetbeats! Their electric rhythm filled the arch with sound and set everyone jumping again, it was a perfect end to the live music element of the night. Check them out HERE.

The party continued into the early hours of the morning and we had a wicked time. I think everyone had fun and soon we will arrange another party, maybe we should turn it into an institution or at least a regular occurrence … hmmm…. Here’s some more pictures from the night…
