Hope & Social are more than a band.
They are a band anyone can join; a band who can turn their studio into a bistro for seventy fans; a band who involve people in what they do-from teaching brass instruments in their Streetband Named Desire project to collaborating with other artists in their Crypt Covers Album.
Ten years has seen – in addition to the many projects – a wealth of recorded music. Five studio albums, two EPs, an acoustic album, Crypt Covers, a Christmas song, music for a theatre piece, and a collaboration with New York Brass Band.
Hope & Social are renowned for making every gig an event; a band who throw themselves wholeheartedly into every performance and perfectly bridge the gap between the stage and the audience.
Anthemic songs, infectious melodies and a formidable live experience.
