The Homecoming! Hope and Social take to the road with their inimitable charm, impecable show, and ramshackle music-hall bonhomie. Brass, guitars, drums, ukuleles, pianos, basses, banjos and those voices. «Extraordinary songs, virtuoso performances, beautiful monents» Tom Robinson — BBC 6 Music.
Nine years, five albums, thousands of gigs, Glastonbury, Leeds Arena and many a pub and front room across the country – Hope & Social do the things every band does, and then so, so much more. A people’s band at heart, they involve their audiences in as many ways as possible; singing on their records, appearing in their videos and by always making their shows life-affirming experiences.
Hope & Social built their house on the foundations of some over-serious indie music, a falling out of love with the record industry and a still heartfelt belief in the powers of music and people. A magical mystery open top bus trip with fans for a secret gig on a beach, turning their studio into a bistro and conducting a 70-strong wine-bottle orchestra, teaching their songs to 1,200 fans so they could all play together on tour…Hope & Social like to have a lot of fun.
With their energetic, joyful, dance-along music and impeccable showmanship, this exceptional band create a unmissable experience.
