We are going to hold a final farewell to Alamo Music on Saturday 25th February 2012 upstairs at Santiago’s in Leeds:
1-3 Grand Arcade
Leeds LS1 6PG
Start time will be 8pm. Finish will be late. We are still putting together the details of what is going to happen, but the invitation is open to you, your partners and your family to come and bid farewell.
This is a small room with a capacity of about 100. We want to give shareholders and their guests priority but would also like to invite other people who have been involved with Alamo over the years.
When & Where
Hope and Social
Hope and Social are a band who do things a little bit differently. We're an independent band hailing from Leeds and some of the best things we've ever done have been to do with involving people in the events we run. Soooooo....
.... we've had 70 people Come Dine With Us at our studio...
... we've taken 80 people to the seaside on an open top double decker the Hope and Social Fun Bus...
... and we've done countless shows up and down the country... including Glastonbury.
We also wear Blue jackets.
That's all very good but are Hope and Social actually any good?
Well far be it for me to say...
“Brilliant, uplifting and inclusive. That was amazing, here’s your cheque” - Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival
"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
“smash-your-head-into-the-wall brilliant” - Entertainment Weekly
“one of the UK’s top five live bands” - The Independent
“I’ve heard the name vaguely” - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
Loved by our fans, and converting people gig by gig… the most honest thing to say is that we try our best!
Hope and Social are... Simon Wainwright: Vocal, guitar, piano / Rich Huxley: Guitar, Vocals / Ed Waring: Rhodes, Organ / Simon Goff: Bass, Strings / James Hamilton: Trumpet (and other brass) / Gary Stewart: Drums, Vocals… plus anybody else who wishes to don a blue jacket…
