To celebrate the sound of summer the Jewellery Quarter BID will be hosting free live music performances in the Golden Square. This event will take place on selected Fridays between 12am & 2pm.
Some selected photos from this #MusicintheSquare event:
Held at the Handsworth Fire Station Cllr Narinder Kaur Kooner, working with South & City College Birmingham, Business in the Community and Handsworth Wood CDT.
The Lord and Lady Mayoress of Birmingham will officially open the event at 10am.
Cllr Kooner said: “When I was campaigning to be re-elected, people asked me time and time again: Will you help me get a job? I’m thrilled that ‘Employment Street’ is now all set for 4 April.
“The great thing is that actual jobs, apprenticeships and training will be available on the day to those who impress the employers taking part.
“Hundreds of people came to a similar event at the fire station back in 2011, and I’m sure that this one will be very well supported by the local community. We’ve got a really broad range of employers, looking to employ people of different ages, skills and backgrounds.
“I’m very grateful to Business in the Community and to the Handsworth Wood Community Development Trust for supporting the event, as well as to West Midlands Fire Service for providing the venue and such enthusiastic help.”
Local legendary artist Apache Indian was present to entertain all..
Over 600 attendees & around 300 people have taken up offers of jobs or training programmes!
This song is about two people in-love that defy the world.
This world is a terrible place; love is the only thing that gives meaning to our lives.
It is true “those that are (afraid) do not fall in-love” – because falling in-love is a huge undertaking.
All the worlds’ religions are to one aim ~ to unite and promote love. In God’s house there is no Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, atheist etc. We are all God’s children.
1 John 3:1 “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”
When you are in-love you will willingly and knowingly sacrifice your existence in order to protect your loved one.
I love this quote from the Bible:
Romans 13:8 “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
When you are true to your heart the universe bends to your unite you to your love. You need nerves of steel and a heart that will not falter, for God is on your side.
This is my favorite bit of the song (Because it is based on Hindu scriptures of Radha & Khrishna, notice the flute and Minakshi being drawn to Jackie when he plays the flute – I Love it):

I set off with two friends Chris Slater and Tracey Page to Stoney Stanton Leicester, a mere 40 minute’s journey, from the Jewellery Quarter. Stoney Stanton is a village in the district of Blaby.
My generation were playing in the Stoney Station Social Club, which is based in the very centre of Stoney Stanton, a rural village on the edge of Leicestershire.
My generation consists of
Lead Vocals and guitar
Lead guitar and backing vocals
Bass Guitar and backing vocals
My generation start playing at about 9:30 PM. I was very impressed with how well they sounded acoustically. They played my favourite Who song “My Generation” very well indeed.
I took my camera along with and managed to get some pictures of the band. The light levels were extremely poor so I had a rather difficult task taking shots.
You can see some of my images below:
