Teenage band to appear on prime time BBC after Boris Johnson announcement delayed showing
Teenagers from West Norfolk are set to appear on BBC One as part of a show focusing on how people get into the music industry.
Hollie Rischmiller, 18, Erin Tasker, 16, and Toby Young, 16, set up their band ‘Geese not Gooses’ while studying at Access Creative College in Norwich.
Erin, who lives in Snettisham, said the quirky band name was thought up after one of the band members discovered Gooses was not a word.
After being originally scheduled to appear on BBC’s Inside Out at 7.30pm on Monday, Boris Johnson’s televised statement regarding stringent coronavirus guidelines, meant the teenagers would have to wait to see themselves on the iconic channel.
The programme is, at the time of writing, being broadcast on Monday having been rescheduled again from Thursday.
Erin said: “It will be interesting to see what they included in the show. It was filmed a month ago at the college.” On the band, she added: “We are all good friends. We are not able to practice as a band at the moment but we are still playing individually.”
Erin plays the guitar and baritone ukele, citing inspirations such as Dodie Clark, The 1975 and James Bay.
However, the band are open to playing music from all genres and eras.
