Blue Nation ready to stream 100th gig live from their living room

A SOLIHULL blues and rock band is tuning up ahead of its 100th gig live from their living room.

When the UK went into its first national lockdown in March 2020 Blue Nation pledged to perform live on Facebook every Thursday night at 7pm.

And they haven’t missed a week, the band have performed on holidays, on New Year’s Eve and even on Neil Murdoch’s – the band’s front man – birthday and this Thursday, January 27 it will mark their 100th live stream.

The band decided to give back to their local NHS and raise money for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB).

And so far they have raise more than £1,200.

Featuring songs from the three-piece band and requests from fans tuning in, Neil and Blue Nation have not only increased their fan base across the globe but have also done their bit for a good cause.

In the process the music broadcast, held every Thursday evening, has provided enormous support to those struggling with the effects of the pandemic and past lockdowns, creating a community of dedicated and supportive fans.

Neil said: “The stream is about the fans, for the fans and for them to take their mind off whatever is troubling them.

“The format features plenty of chat, no egos and some tunes sung from my very own front room.”
