And the award for "Largest group ever to perform at Sofar" goes to... Bournemouth locals @funkychoir, who gathered about 60 of their 200 (!) members to perform in a beautiful church venue for @sofarsoundsbournemouth last weekend. We can't even imagine how angelic that must have sounded... 😱

To celebrate the weekend, we've got a heart-warming love story for you, courtesy of @sofarcle... πŸ’•
.
Amber noticed Jamie at a #SofarSounds gig on a boat (!) in April 2016 and kept gushing to her friend about how cute he was. However, she couldn't find the courage to go up to him during the show, and it wasn't until they were leaving that they finally got talking, when Jamie accidentally walked into the girls' car. Three days later the two went on their first date, and they've been together ever since... 😊
.
To remember this life-changing night, the two got a copy of the gig poster framed in their living room.
.
In the following summer, they travelled to London and attended @sofarlondon, and (as long-time Sofar fans) they of course also continued to come to the gigs in Cleveland.
.
This August - not even 18 months after they first met - Jamie proposed to Amber by a waterfall while the couple was hiking in Colorado, and they are getting married in July 2018.
.
We wish the two love birds all the best for their future, and are very grateful that they both decided to attend the same Sofar show on that fateful day in April 2016... ❀️

πŸ’₯ This week we celebrated a special milestone: We’ve put on 10,000 shows since Sofar started in 2009! πŸ’₯

What began as a hobby in a cozy London apartment has turned into a global community made up of thousands of artists, hosts, volunteers and audience members with a shared passion for live music.

We've brought secret, intimate performances to over 350 cities, all thanks to YOU. So hats off to you all - and we hope you enjoy this little slideshow of some of our most magical Sofar moments! ✨

What if you were forced to flee your home at a moment's notice, with nothing but the clothes on your back? How would you remember your home? For millions of refugees worldwide, this isn't a hypothetical - it's reality. Music is an international language that ties us to memories and calms us down. So tell us - if all you had left of your home was a song, what would that song be? Share a video, photo, or even your own cover, using #homesong. β €
