MOG is described as “a true lyricist, with his gritty autobiographical rhymes and his unmatched flows and delivery”. This style has helped him claim his position in the “upper echelons of Scottish hip-hop”.

miSTAh bOhZE was part of the hip-hop collective, Toy Control, that launched at the end of 2013, he was also the founding member of Scotland’s first hip-hop band, the II Tone Committee.

Brian Jamieson, host and organiser, remarked about the Church Street Hip Hop night;

“this will be the fourth one I’ve done and without exaggeration they have all been amazing largely due to the Inverness crowd being wild,but also recognising extremely talented acts performing for them”..

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
