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...
