Local Bands Launch Surge News Hotline
Share This Article:
On Friday those who work in the University of Southampton Student Union’s media departments were given a very special treat; an hour and a half’s worth of live music from three enthusiastic and energetic new bands, as the Bridge Bar played host to a social organised by SURGE Radio. First up was the much-hyped The David Gilani Experience, which featured Andy Neilson on Guitar, Rob Leane on Bass and the titular frontman himself on keyboard and vocals. Taking the direction of Radio One’s live lounge and the quirky covers that can throw up, TDGE ran seamlessly through some popular songs, such as Far East Movement’s 'Like a G6', Duck Sauce’s 'Barbra Streisand' and a clever take on Rihanna’s 'What’s My Name?' The threesome ended their show with a sweet and charming original called 'So Much Lovin’ in the Room Tonight', a witty but touching call to remind everyone to go out and enjoy the evening. Tonight’s show was just a sneak preview of what the band are capable of, with a full set being played on Monday at Frequency, held at the same venue.
