Primus and Little Kids Rock Sweepstakes Winner Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:19:27 +0000 We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful generosity so many of you have shown in entering our competition in support of Little Kids Rock.

The sweepstakes raised $3140 – enough to serve an additional 125 kids with free music lessons this year!

Thomas “Jay” Gleaton from Atlanta, GA was the winner of the customized Dual Terror signed by members of Primus. This former music teacher donated enough to put a new acoustic guitar into a local classroom. He is a bass player and he said that hearing Primus is what made him want to pick up an electric bass in the first place.

“Little Kids Rock is so grateful to Primus and Orange Amps for supporting our kids!” says Little Kids Rock CEO and Founder, David Wish. “With the funds raised from this sweepstakes, nearly 125 additional public schools students will have access to free musical instruments and lessons, a gift that will last a lifetime!”

Our congratulations to Jay and our sincere thanks to everybody who donated to this very special cause.

Y Not Festival 2014 Fri, 01 Aug 2014 11:02:24 +0000 For one weekend a year, this weekend in fact – The gorgeous Peak District countryside becomes home to the Y Not Festival. Y Not is the Small, Fresh & Loud music festival, with a fantastic atmosphere and a history of amazing live acts. This year Orange Amps are helping to provide the back line.

There has been steady, organic growth since it began life as a gathering of young people attending an overspilling house party in deepest, darkest, Derbyshirest, Derbyshire. But it does retain the carefree, good-time atmosphere of those original, dawning years.

The festival is still run by the same small team of passionate enthusiasts it was all those years ago (albeit a little older and a little wiser), but with the same ethos at heart – great people having a great time makes a great festival.

Stunning panoramic views of the countryside, a fully stocked bar of local ales and ciders, a mouth-watering selection of food and more live music than you could ever possibly take in all through the finest Orange Amplifiers.

All you need to provide is the memories (and a killer fancy dress outfit).


Y not is held on 1st -3rd August 2014 at Pikehall, Derbyshire DE4 2PH. Click HERE for more information
