Hope and Social are a band who do things a little bit differently. They wear blue jackets, they play mind-blowing, balls-to-the-floor, anything-for-a-laugh, much-more-for-a-tear, heart-on-your-sleeve, foot-on-your-monitor gigs. Gloriously and fiercely independent Hope and Social formed the UK’s first fan-funded record label Alamo Music and have made just about every mistake a ‘professional’ band can make and have now decided that entertaining people and making the songs they love is the most important thing in music. They like people. They like involving people.
