We are delighted to announce a partnership with Dr. Martens. Long the footwear of choice for innovative sub-cultures and musicians, from their beginnings as work boots and shoes to the present day, Dr. Martens are interwoven with the fabric of alternative music.
They will be announcing a selection of our bands – one a week via their online channels. So far we’ve seen Sean McGowan, Skellies, The Meat & Onions Gang and CuT, with many more to come in the following weeks.
Dr. Martens is an iconic brand that is synonymous with music and has a great heritage. So we are honoured that they have chosen to support us. This partnership will offer a great platform to some of the fantastic bands we work with as well as offering them in-store performance opportunities.
As a registered charity, the support we aim to give aspiring musicians is dependent on assistance from the wider community. We welcome this opportunity to partner with a quintessentially rock-and-roll brand as a wonderful opportunity to promote both Strummerville values and the eclectic mix of talented DIY artists that we currently work with.
Through their prominence in the eyes of the public, and their cultural legacy as a brand, we think Dr. Martens are in the perfect position to showcase our DIY bands through their online channels; we very much welcome the continuation of this partnership and look forward to spreading the word about the work that we do and to help develop new grassroots music.
