Bluetouch Live Local Blues promoter Paul Ruston from Fareham says “Bluetouch Live are a company dedicated to promote a variety of musical events local to Fareham in Hampshire. Fareham has a variety of restaurants and shops, but is seen as lacking in variety when it comes to nightlife. Bluetouch Live recognises that live music is extremely popular in the evenings as can be seen in and around the various bars and pubs putting on bands for customers to enjoy. Here at Bluetouch Live we are aiming to offer fun and quality live music evenings out at an affordable price. We work closely with local clubs, and musicians, to ensure the right venue matches with the type of event for our clients”.
