Our sound is big & exciting; you'll see why people come from outside Hampshire to be in hago!

We work hard to make the finest music - not just notes - that we can.
We always ease new players in gently.
And we have a lot of fun.


What about hago's different sizes of guitar? Actually, most of us play our own guitars - look in the photo above!

All the facts

We rehearse at Lovedean Hall (1st & 3rd Thursdays - term time 7:25 - 10pm).

We aim for 100% attendance - it's key to our strength.

We play 6-8 concerts a year for local charities.

Lovedean is close to the A3M, easy to reach from Portsmouth, Petersfield, Southampton & Chichester. Many of us travel some distance to play in hago!

Our Musical Director, Derek Hasted, has a master's degree, a teaching diploma, CRB enhanced clearance, and doesn't take himself too seriously...

The inside story

Everyone in hago shares their line with a buddy - it gives us a robust, confident and stress-free sound.

  • Large members-only website with MP3s to play-along with at home
