Hope & Social

Day: Friday

Hope & Social, eight hoodlums who play all-out, joyous and uplifting music and won the hearts of many a gig-goer throughout their ten-year tenure as one of the UK’s hardest working bands. Hope & Social gigs are a bewildering mix of chaos and superlative musicianship, built on fine songs, and garnished with generous portion of Northern, self deprecating humour. With a three-piece horn section and five part harmonies, Hope & Social make a massive sound that draws influence from soul, indie, folk, disco and art rock. You’ll sing, you’ll dance, you’ll smile so much your face will hurt. Think Dexys. Think The Hold Steady. Think the grooviest, funnest bar band you can imagine! In March 2022 lead singer Simon was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. After a long year and a half of the best support the NHS can offer, the band are doing their stretches and are ready to make a return to doing what they love best… playing life affirming music and sharing a thunderous joy of being together and literally not being dead.
