What we’re about

Do you, like us, listen to the Jazz Show with Jamie Cullum every week on BBC Sounds? (Or the Blues Show with Cerys Matthews... Or the Funk and Soul Show with Craig Charles?)

Did you also, like us, make a New Year's resolution to go to more gigs this year?

We thought, why not create a Meetup group for queer guys who like going to gigs? As well as Jazz, Blues, Funk and Soul gigs, we'll also be posting Indie, Reggae and World Music gigs too (just not Pop and Rock, you can join the lovely WYBTD? - Will You Be There Darling - Meetup group for those).

We created the group for queer men mainly but if you are a different letter in the LGBTQIA acronym, or an ally (A is for Allies!) feel free to join too 🤗

About your hosts:

Stephen is a 53-year-old gay man. Bored of the bars and the apps, he wanted to create a way for queer lovers of live music to meet. He has two other Meet Up groups: LGBT Friendly Qi Gong & Forest Bathing through which he hosts days out in the summer months: and Monthly Thai Massage, Qi Gong & Sound Bath - For Gay Men, which will be starting on 24th September 2023, then every last Sunday of the month from then.

Stuart is a 57-year-old bi guy. He’s happily married but he’s a night owl and his wife is a lark, hence the search for people to go to gigs with. Stuart prefers music of black origin, from the Blues to Afrobeats. A founding member of ‘The Funky Five’ at school, he’s a rude boy, soul boy, dub head and jazz fag.
