SheBoom is a non-profit making, self-supporting collective. All sums earned are spent on drumming tuition, hire of rehearsal rooms, purchase and maintenance of instruments, carnival costumes, administration and publicity costs. We have no salaried staff and band members do not derive an income from band earnings. Donations and sponsorships are welcome.
SheBoom has performed locally within the UK and internationally. All invitations to perform are fed to the band for collective decision.
SheBoom has played at all sorts of events from street carnivals, music festivals, sports events, opening of the Scottish Parliament, to bar mitzvahs and private weddings.
Although SheBoom has performed in several political arenas, the band is apolitical. As a general rule of thumb, the band supports any non-discriminatory, non-violent, women-friendly campaign.
SheBoom is a women’s band and it is made up of women of different sexualities. We are of different ethnicities, nationalities, abilities, sizes, ages, beliefs, political persuasions, educational and cultural backgrounds. We even have non-pierced, menopausal, meat-eaters. SheBoom is proud to invest in diversity.
Listen to some samples from our CD or better still buy one for yourself. Watch out for forthcoming gigs. You never know, we might be performing nearby. Once, a German fan travelled to Spain to see us play!
The same reason why there were no women in the Beatles. However, we have women-friendly, male helpers and supporters who come and help out – mainly holding handbags, running for coffee and other equally important jobs. Rehearsals on Friday evenings are women-only unless by prior arrangement.
All women welcome. Get in touch with SheBoom and put your name on the waiting list. All wannabes have to attend Baby Boomer classes first. Due to some venues, we insist that women are at least 16 years old. No upper age limit. Latest intake workshops took place in Feb 2015.
Yes. As part of our community involvement, SheBoom organises classes about once a year. Contact us with your details and we will put you on a waiting list. Classes start when there is enough demand for one. No previous experience necessary. Tuition, drums and sticks provided.
