John “Sideshow Man” at INSTALL 2

This footage was taking from our showcase (Install 2) in August. It was one of Johns first ever performances on his own here is some of what he had to say about the experience:

“It was good to be able to perform and I was really chuffed to be asked to represent the group. I felt that by performing my own song I was able to show what the guitar club is about. When I started the group I guess I was just looking for something that would get me back on the path to getting out there and socialising with people again. Throughout my time in the group I feel like my confidence has increased both through noticing my improvement on guitar and positive reinforcement from the tutor and other members along the way. The fact that I’ve got to the point where I am writing my own songs on the guitar and happy enough with them to showcase them to an audience shows what can be achieved if you get involved with something like the guitar club. Also in a sense I was proud to show that what Isabel (co-founder of Theatre Nemo) started almost 20 years ago! On the night of the performance I felt really nervous but I’m glad I did it as I got lots of positive feedback”
