The bar that serves bass rather than beer

Serving Sounds is an interactive multi-sensory sound installation creating connection through music.

Playful and joyful with spaces for up to four people of all ages to interact with the bar at any one time, each experience can last up to the length of a song.

As you arrive, you’ll find the ordinary items you’d usually expect to find at a bar such as glasses, beermats, the odd bit of change. But at this bar these items, when touched, will create a groove, a sound, strings, a snare, maybe a guitar, or synths, if you like.

About Working Boys Club

The Working Boys Club was founded in 2020 by Jason and Adam Dupree, identical twins from Poole in Dorset. Both started in the trades: Adam as car mechanic and Jason as an electrician. Noticing the lack of art made by and for the working class, they formed The Working Boys Club, blending their skills from the building site with those learnt in the rehearsal room.
