SSR Manchester - SSR students at Kasabian concert
SSR students at Kasabian concert
SSR’s Live Sound students were treated to an exclusive behind the scenes tour of Kasabian’s concert at the M.E.N.

SSR Live Sound students were invited along by Head of Live Sound Jay Beard’s former colleague Paul Ramsey, who has been responsible for work with not only Kasbian but Doves and Skunk Anansie to name a few.

The students were allowed watch the band as they performed a sound check, observe the front of house PA, mixing desk and also watch the crew as they carried out their duties.

This real world experience is vital to our students and is a testament to SSR’s strong industry connections.

SSR Live Sound Tutor Jay Beard :
“I was delighted that Paul invited my students to the Kasabian sound check. He has been a fantastic colleague and contact for me over the years and has given SSR students some fantastic opportunities. This kind of exposure is hugely beneficial to anyone studying Live Sound and something SSR is committed to.”

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Kasabian, their tour manager Paul Ramsey and the entire crew for giving their time to our students and offering their advice and support.
