What we did
Sick Nurses is one of the first projects of New Beat. The project started in a social sector organization Lyhty ry in 2009. These nurses are a team who work with people with disabilities. They got excited with the idea of tuning their team with music. After trying out different musical styles, they got the idea of a punk band and named it Sick Nurses.
Punk was a style of music they had zero experience before. They chose punk to build a equal space for the team members who all came from around the world and didn't have common native language. They started writing songs about nursing and soon performed for their colleagues and friends.
Sick Nurses propably didn't see it coming, but they soon started performing in clubs and gathered fans around them. Their songs became stronger and they really had to
Music has helped them to collaborate and grow as a team. The band has become an inspirational journey together, and enabled them to share experiences they didn't have words for. After many gigs Sick Nurses have launched their first album and still have fun playing together.
