The Hughe Fighters punk band from Hughes Ellard, the independent firm based in Fareham, competed in a battle-of-the-bands showdown for charity at the 100 Club in Oxford Street, London.

Rock giants who have gigged there include The Who, Rolling Stones, Oasis, New York Dolls and Kings of Leon, with Green Day interviewed before the live event.

Following in their high-octane footsteps, in front of hundreds of people, including a coachload of colleagues from Hampshire, Hughe Fighters took on legal professionals in bands called Practical Law, SMAB, Clyde & Co and Marks & Clerk.

Russell Mogridge, Hughe Fighters’ drummer and a director at Hughes Ellard, said: ‘We’ve been practising long enough to realise we are better off retaining our careers in commercial real estate. However, we played our best and certainly did not disgrace Hampshire or ourselves.’

They raised money for the Smile4Wessex charity in Hampshire.
