    • Info: Luke Doherty was born on 29th March 1994, in Newport, Gwent. He had an interest in music at a very young age. Although no one in his family play an instrument, he was determined to learn to play something, and at the age of five he started playing piano, but didn’t like it. He then asked to play the drums but was told by a drum teacher he was way too young and to wait a couple of years. He then settled on a half size acoustic guitar which he had to give up after three months due to medical reasons. At seven and a half he was nagging his parents again to learn guitar, so they bought him a second hand half size electric guitar and a second hand amp and he has never looked back. He instantly became hooked on blues, intently watching any blues musicians he could find on TV or DVD.

Midnight Hour

  • Midnight Hour 2017

    Saturday 10th August

    • Venue: The Gremlin
    • Time: 1:30pm
    • Info: The South Wales Argus said... "Midnight Hour are a four piece band playing well known songs from the 60's and 70's. I was told they were all well seasoned musicians with a wealth of experience playing the clubs and pubs of Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys. To be frank I was expecting the same old numbers being trotted out by unenthusiastic players like so many bands on the pub circuit, but right from the first number the singer grabs your attention with some wailing harmonica and gutsy vocals. Their set continues at pace with the band clearly enjoying every minute of playing live. No room for any bored musicians in this band. The lead guitarist, when he's given the nod by the dripping wet frontman can let rip on the fretboard with the best of them. This is no ordinary covers band, no, this is a covers band that you need to see."
