DD8 Music held an open day at their new premises in Bellies Brae, Kirriemuir on Saturday to showcase their new facilities to those interested in making music.

A year in the making, the purpose built building, complete with recording studio, is now available for bookings for rehearsal sessions.

Saturday’s open afternoon included open mic sessions where anyone could enjoy a jam.

DD8 Music would like to thank local businesses and tradesmen for their generosity and support of the project.

Colin M Smith kindly donated a plasma TV so that bands can be watched in the control room, giving more space in the practice area; Lisa Ysat from the ‘Random Recycling’ shop in Kirriemuir donated a rug for the rehearsal room and plumber Gordon Dobbie and joiner Bill Pitt carried work on the building. The building is now open for rehearsal slots with recording facilities in the near future. Contact DD8Music@hotmail.co.uk or Graham Galloway on 07900490959, or view the website on www.dd8music.com. DD8 Music also received funding from Rural Tayside Leader and Angus Council Community Grant Scheme.
