Independent Artist Mike Hough Sells Out The Jazz Cafe | Gig Review

Hey everyone,

So on Sunday the 16th March, I attended East London born singer/songwriter Mike Hough's sold out headline show in Camden, at the famous london venue 'The Jazz Cafe'. For an Independent artist to break boundaries and sell out such an iconic venue, this can only be the start of something truly special and what a night it was to witness!

From the start of the show to the very end, the night was all about talent, energy, fun and having a good time. The evening was filled with incredible vocals, talented musicians, and all round good music.The crowd eagerly anticipated the arrival of Mike Hough on stage and counted down along with the projected video which was displayed before his arrival. Prior to the gig starting, fans travelled from all over the UK, and queued at least six hour's before the gig started that day, to catch a glimpse of the singer up close. 

Inspiration and energy filled the venue throughout the night, as Mike Hough's interaction with the fans evolved through out the evening. From singing old classics such as 'Hero' from the very start of his career, to new song's such as 'Dumb' which is one of the songs that was co-written with fellow songwriter JB Gill former member of JLS. Mike's stage presence shone more then ever before upon the stage where he performed and the connection between him, his band, and the fans lifted the venue and brought something even more incredible to the atmosphere. 

Once coming off the stage the crowd continued to chant for Mike to come back on and do more as they were not ready to leave. This in itself showed how much his fan's enjoyed the show.

Overall, Mike's headlining show was full of soul, vibes and energy! From fully rocking out to MJ's 'Rock With You' in an 80's/90's medley which also included other song's such as 'Ain't Nobody'. To then asking the venue to be silent so Mike could break it down and acoustically sing one his newest originals 'Lost In Love' which you can watch above.

I really enjoyed the show and this gig left me very inspired, motivated, and even more driven, to continue working hard to achieve and succeed in my dreams... just as he is doing!

Live life and Chase Your Dreams
See you Saturday!
