Manuka Hive - BUZZIN'
I turned up at The Plug on Sunday to see the incredible Manuka Hive (who I'd seen the day before at another venue). Having not been to The Plug before I didn't really know what to expect but I was impressed with the venue and 2 stage set up.
Manuka Hive looked a lot more at home in a bigger venue with more stage room than my previous encounter in a crowded pub. The sound quality was excellent and their single R.E.D. came across as the soaring masterpiece sing-a-long that it is meant to be. Give it a listen - it will be in your head for days.
The only down side was the poor crowd turn out.The Plug had put on some great acts over the weekend - I just hope they got more people in for most of the other bands.
