SSR Manchester - Dutch Uncles tour pre-production at SSR
Dutch Uncles tour pre-production at SSR
The Dutch Uncles have long been friends of SSR, Andy Proudfoot used to study on our academic course Sound Engineering & Design back in 2008 and the band have previously used Spirit Studio to record tracks.

For those not in the know, The Dutch Uncles are a 5 piece indie rock band hailing from Marple with hits such as “Steadycam” and are signed to London based label Memphis Industries. They have gained critical acclaim with recent album 'Out of Touch In The Wild' and have developed a large fanbase across Europe through their energetic live shows.

We are always keen to help the band out as they are fantastic musicians and it’s really satisfying to see one of ex-student’s career flourishing. The band, along with their own engineer, visited SSR to prep for their UK tour and were assisted by SSR students Stan Lipnitski, Janus Meunstermaan and Alex Cook. They helped with FOH, monitors and stage setup as well as picking up some tips from The Dutch Uncles' own engineer.
