On the 29th of November we had Blue Rose Code playing a wonderful and intimate gig at the Hub.
The gig was sold out, through a combination of online ticket sales and by our team members, so the Hub was packed and it was going to be a good night.
We started with team member, Sam, who introduced the whole night and got us all excited for what was to come. Burnt Out Records Artist Holly Powers opened with a lovely set on her guitar. She wowed the audience with her voice and played four originals, Sadness, Frozen Ground, For You and Hollow.
Our next act was the Ukes of Hazard, comprised of Orla, Abbi, Anne and Millie. They all play ukulele and have recently added in cello, which adds such a lovely touch. Their combination of covers and original, Still Not Over, was delightful and the cello added some texture to the later songs to their set.
After a short break where the audience were buzzing in anticipation for the main act, Sam introduced Blue Rose Code. His stage presence is warm and inviting and he really gets the audience going with his anecdotes of gigs he has played and stories of how his songs came to be. He played an amazing set and got us all laughing with his references of being Scottish.
For his final song, Grateful, he had us all singing and enjoying ourselves and it left the audience wanting to hear more. At the end of the gig, audience members could buy Blue Rose Code’s CDs and meet the man himself.
We’d like to thank Blue Rose Code for coming to play at the Hub, I’m sure we are all grateful.
