Dram and Poetry:
In autumn 2013 the Dram musicians collaborated with English poet Jon Walsh to create a show called, 'Harvest'. The show melds the evocative music of Dram with superb performance poetry by Jon, Neil and Steve. It was performed at Shenzhen Fringe Festival and various bars in Shenzhen.
Dram at private functions:
The band played at several private wine parties, tailoring their set for a more relaxed atmosphere.
Dram in bars:
We are extremely sorry for the amount of hangovers we caused due to getting carried away and causing our audiences to drink and dance into the small hours.
