Music | November 22, 2013

Last weekend was the second of this year’s R&B Superstar shows at Wembley Arena, which saw a sensational eleven all star line-up from some of the best known faces in R&B. The likes of Sisqo, Mario, Genuwine, Kelly Price, Faith Evans and more, graced the stage with energetic & soulful performances of classic hits, which had everyone  up on their feet enjoying the electrifying atmosphere.

BassBuds were the official sponsors of The Show, and hosted a backstage VIP lounge; the carpet was rolled out for a long list of press, VIP & celebrity guests.  Joining the  US stars backstage were some of the UK’s very own talent, recording artists and media stars such as one quarter of super group Little Mix, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jahmene Douglas, Lisa Maffia, Pascal Craymer, Gemma Cairney & many more.

BassBuds CEO’s Steven Beckford and Clint Ippoma also came to enjoy The Show, making a big entrance to the VIP lounge with a host of industry guests along with friends of the brand.








BassBuds interviewed the Superstars and some of the guests for their upcoming channel BB Live – keep a close eye for the first preview episodes, coming soon!   The Clef Truants front man Aleco also represented the brand for some one-on-one time with the celebs.

BassBuds also arranged a surprise in the form of some special guests  – the Rough Copy lads came straight from their X Factor show to take over the Wembley Arena stage, even treating the audience to an impromptu performance!  The guys also enjoyed meeting the all star line-up backstage in the BassBuds VIP lounge, to get some industry advice…


There was a host of entertainment in the BassBuds backstage lounge too, including Ryan Tricks magician, award winning manicurist Roxanne Campbell and pop-up pamper area from Be Box. 

The Show Tour will be back in February 2014 for another jam-packed Superstar event!  We  hope to see you there!

WIN Rough Copy Signed BassBuds!


Competitions, Music | November 5, 2013



Three down to earth guys with one big dream…. Kaz, Sterling & Joey entered this year’s XFactor as Rough Copy; a three piece band from Croydon.  With a sharp image & soulful harmonies, they have proven to be anything but ordinary so far in the competition.

Since their first X Factor audition, Rough Copy set the bar high for the band category receiving only positive comments from judges, and they have gone from strength to strength to quickly become a firm favourite to win this year’s hit show.

By putting their own unique spin on classics such as Oasis’ Stop Crying Your Heart Out they have wowed the judges, viewers and us here at BassBuds – although we’ve been fans for a long while! With Gary Barlow as their mentor, Rough Copy have proven to be tough contenders and as a result have sailed through the first 3 weeks of live shows.

BassBuds are proud Rough Copy fans too, and they’ve enjoyed using their earphones while travelling around London and rehearsing backstage.

Last Sunday saw the launch of our Rough Copy Twitter competition, to support them in the live shows.  During the Sarurday night live shows over the next two weeks we will again be offering Rough Copy fans the chance to WIN signed BassBuds goodies. To be in with a chance of winning your very own BassBuds signed by the boys themselves, follow our Twitter  & keep an eye out during Sunday’s show.
