Jas­mine’s gig is set to rock

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Cam­bus­lang teenager is help­ing to or­gan­ise a gig at a top Glas­gow venue.

Jas­mine Gel­latly, from Drum­sagard, is ar­rang­ing a mu­sic event as part of an en­ter­prise pro­ject to help de­velop skills in the mu­sic in­dus­try.

For­mer Cathkin High pupil Jas­mine,18,, is work­ing with six other stu­dents from Glas­gow Col­lege’s HNC Ra­dio course on the pro­ject.

She’s booked three bands to play at Nice N Sleazy’s on Wed­nes­day, March 9.

She said: “I wasn’t sure about it at first but once we got into meet­ings and brain­storm­ing it’s been good fun.

“We’ve been quite lucky that our group has all got on well and we all un­der­stand each other.

“I didn’t re­ally think about how much work goes into putting gigs to­gether be­fore, like do­ing press re­leases and us­ing so­cial me­dia.

“I hadn’t thought about that be­fore, so it’s been great do­ing that.

“We’ve been helped by Keren McKean, who used to work with DF Con­certs.

“Keren’s been great - any lit­tle thing we’re not sure about we can mes­sage her, so she’s been so help­ful.”

Mu­sic has al­ways been part of Jas­mine’s life, though - her dad’s the pop­u­lar Scot­tish DJ Jim Gel­latly.

And it is ra­dio she still fan­cies ap­pear­ing in most.

Jas­mine added: “I grew up around ra­dio, so it seemed ob­vi­ous that’s what I’d do but this has been some­thing dif­fer­ent to do.

“I ‘m in­ter­ested in pro­mot­ing gigs, but it’s still be­ing a ra­dio pro­ducer one day that’s the main thing I’d want to do.

“How­ever it’s good to ex­pe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent things, and that you can get dif­fer­ent skills.”

Ap­pear­ing on the bill are Fly­ing By Mir­rors, the Snuts and the Cairds.

She added: “It was tough just to get the bands to­gether but we’re re­ally happy with who we’ve got for the night.”

Keren McKean said: “I’m al­ways look­ing for great new peo­ple who are forg­ing their way in the mu­sic in­dus­try as much as I am look­ing for great new bands.

“I’ve found this year’s Glas­gow City Col­lege stu­dents to be re­ally pro ac­tive and en­thu­si­as­tic, full of great ideas and very pro­fes­sional.”

The gig is part of Cre­ative City 2016, a fes­ti­val show­cas­ing the skills of stu­dents from the fac­ulty of cre­ative in­dus­tries at the City of Glas­gow Col­lege.

The event is spon­sored by The Stu­dio tat­too and pierc­ing par­lour in Glas­gow’s city cen­tre.

Tick­ets for the gig are £6 or £5 with a City of Glas­gow col­lege stu­dent card.
