Come and join us for a night live music at The Hard Rock Cafe, London! 

Doors open from 6.45pm with live music starting shortly after, on the bill:

Mila Falls - 7.10pm to 7.35pm

Like a tornado hit Las Vegas and left a wake of glitter in its path. Her style is stomping beats, soul vocals and a wicked left hook. Mila’s career has taken her on adventures supporting Rudimental, Sub Focus, Ella Eyre, Ringo Starr, Van Morrison and UB40. Mila has been on the front cover of magazines, championed by Annie Mac on Radio 1, achieved “Smash Of The Week” on BBC 1Xtra, has toured in Europe and performed on UK television.

Sasha McVeigh 7.45pm to 8.10pm 

Her professional music journey started in July 2012 to 2013 when she took a two week trip to Nashville, performing at venues such as Tootsies Orchid Lounge, The Rutledge, The Bluebird and various others up and down Broadway. Sasha opened the show, headlined by Hunter Hayes, and performed for some, including Fox5 KVVU, ABC13 KTNV, CBS and GAC

Sasha has been named as “one to watch” and an artist “on the brink of a breakthrough” by Taste of Country and The Boot. .

Abi Bridgeman 8.20pm to 8.45pm 

Brit Country Rock singer-songwriter who combines country with a classic British guitar backbone to create a unique modern sound.

Music has always been the compass in Abi's life and has taken her from performing for the Queen of England to playing CMA Fest in Nashville, Tennessee.

Abi is currently recording her upcoming album but as much as she loves the music studio, the stage is her home.

Mel Gaynor 9pm to 10.30pm 

Mel is best known as the longtime drummer for the rock band Simple Minds. Gaynor was born to a Jamaican father and an Afro-Brazilian mother.

After leaving Samson, Gaynor joined Simple Minds in 1982 as a session drummer for the New Gold Dream album (as a recommendation by record producer Pete Walsh), playing on six of the nine tracks. He later joined the band permanently for the New Gold Dream tour, as a replacement for Mike Ogletree. Except for a period (1992–97) away from the band after the Real Life tour of 1991–92, he has been the band's drummer to the present day.

During the last few years, Mel has been writing his own songs and will releasing them soon as a singer. His first official gig as a singer will be at the Hard Rock Cafe in London on September 12th 2016.

A great evening, fantastically talented musicians. Evening opened with Mila Falls, a singer with her band playing funking electronic dance music. Next came Sasha McVeigh, who is a talented songwriter & guitarist. Sasha was accompanied by a cajan player. Her songs reflect heartbreak, but she also had the audience singing along to "Take me home country roads" I then watched Abi Bridgeman, who is from Southport, but recently moved to London. Abi has a rock slant to her country music, being accompanied by her 5 piece band. Her set was amazing. It was lovely that being more of an intimate venue, I was able to meet the singers before and after their sets. Visited Hard Rock Cafe on 2016-09-12
