Hot Cold Ground are a bluesy, rocky blues-rock band based in Norfolk, UK. From classic blues to original songs about East Anglian A-roads, we’ve got the lot. Formed in 2009, we are now in our tenth anniversary year. HCG are Daniel, Dave, Richard and Trevor.
Coming up in the next couple of months will be a show at the Dereham Blues Festival – Friday 12th July, 9pm at DCs Bar. We’re just one of many bands playing over the course of this weekend of Blues. Before that we’ll be warming up at our favourite seaside venue The Sailors Home, Kessingland on Sunday 30th June, 3pm.Read more

Just one this month – 23rd June we’re at Walnut Tree Shades in Norwich. Sadly without Trev, so we’ll be doing a toned-down, sort-of unplugged set for a change. Then on the 1st of July we’ll be back at the St Ives Festival Of Motorcycles for the 4th year in a row. A super event that’s grown and grown, soRead more
