The AutistiX had a great time performing at Autism's Got Talent on the 9th May at the Mermaid Theatre, London. It was great performing alongside the very talented performers who also took part: - ballet dancers, solo musicians, hip hop dancers, comedians, even another band. The audience were great, clapping along to our songs and giving us a big cheer at the end of our set. We also had great comments and new followers on facebook and twitter. It was fun being photographed on the red carpet with the unique Anna Kennedy and then to appear on stage with all of the performers and Anna Kennedy. Anna also treated us all to a dance from her involvement with Strictly Come Dancing (on behalf of autism awareness) with her partner Robin. She is truly talented and bounding with energy.
Photos to follow soon!

Wow, Monday night in Brighton was buzzing despite drizzling rain and biting wind. A crowd of about 300 people were dancing away at the Brighton Dome's Corn Exchange. Great venue, hopping crowd, fun gig! We were very well received and fellow students from St John's College and Flashback Dancing loved seeing their mate Saul drumming with his band. The AutistiX enjoyed seeing Saul in his part-time home town and seeing what a great place is Brighton!
Hi all Are you aware that it's World Autism Awareness Week starting on 27th March-2nd April? The AutistiX will be shouting it out at our first gig of the 'season' at the Blue Camel Club in Brighton next Monday 30th March. Come support our band and support autism awareness!
NEW GIG ANNOUNCEMENT! The AutistiX will be performing at the Cosmic Puffins festival in Mersea Island on Saturday 2nd May at 8pm on the Breaking-Out stage. This festival donates all profits to charity and this 8th festival (bigger and better each year) will give proceeds to the following charities: BLISS, ALDLIFE, and the NAS - The National Autistic Society, which we are always pleased to support. It's a Bank Holiday weekend so we hope lots of you will come along for the 3 day festival, especially to see The AutistiX performing!
The AutistiX have taken a break from working on their 3 latest songs to start to rehearse our newest Beatles song for Beatles Day 2015 on 12th April at the White Rock Theatre in Hastings. It's one of the Beatles' lesser known songs (recorded by John Lennnon) 'Gimme Some Truth'. It's a great song chosen by our own John (Duggan, that is) and sounding fabulous on its first run through at last week's rehearsal.
Note the date everyone and looking forward to seeing you at Beatles Day. It is a great day out crammed full of Beatles songs or covers that they performed at some time. It's all in aid of MacMillan nurses so worthwhile supporting it , and supporting your favourite band, The AutistiX!
