#BgoHendrix Secret Gig!

A note from Joelle... 

♫♪'All Along the Watchtower' - Jimi Hendrix ♫♪

Intimate gigs are cool. But learning that Bgo were hosting a Jimi Hendrix intimate gig in North London completely upped the ante. 
Hidden in the basement of the Gallery restaurant was a basement bar, illuminated by fairy lights and candles.

To celebrate the launch of their new Jimi Hendrix Slot game, Bgo brought along some awesome musicians to serenade us over some cocktails and soul food. All three singers played their original compositions along with a Hendrix cover.
Before the gig, we all got a chance to try the tablet version of the Hendrix slot game and win prizes.

Bar staff served us up some incredible whiskey cocktails, that Hannah loved.
I'm not the biggest fan of whiskey, but I gave it a shot and actually quite liked it.

Nope, not fooling anyone!

A spread of soul food and healthy snacks were laid out for us and I ended up eating the majority of the fried chicken..... I'm not even sorry, it was really, really delicious!

First up was Tom Butler, a singer/songwriter from Seattle. Turns out he now lives in the town  in London where I grew up.

Next was Rory Gilmore, a local crooner with an hilariously vibrant stage presence.

Last up was Joe Bernie from BURNZ, who serenaded us with his incredible voice. His guitar was really something too.

Bottoms up!

After the gig, it was nice to sit and mingle with the artists, other attendees and have a cheeky pint. There's something about the intimacy of basement acoustic gigs that makes you feel so chic and grown up - maybe it's just me? I am a big fan of the laidback atmosphere where everyone just seems to leave their troubles at the door and comes in with open minds, eyes and ears.

Thanks everso much to Joe Blogs and Bgo for having us!
