The Superheroes are an eight-piece band from Inverclyde who have been trained by Sounds of Progress for the past seven years. The band consists of a mixture of SOP professionals and musicians with learning disabilities who work collaboratively to write and perform their own material.
The Superheroes perform at festivals, in schools and as part of events such as The European Song Contest for Disabled Artists, where they were 1 of only 10 bands selected to perform in 2003. Summer 2006 saw a collaborative project between Sounds of Progress and National theatre of Scotland called Life, Stories and dreams, where the superheroes played in the Grand Finale at Clydebank Town Hall.
In 2007 The Superheroes performed at the Greenock Arts Guild Theatre, as part of a showcase of Inverclyde’s musical talent. The band also played at Helensburgh’s Commodore Hotel, as part of a collaborative concert between SOP and Helensburgh-based Jigsaw kids (a charity who work with young people with disabilities).
