Backstage celeb news at the Key 103 Live concert: Part 1

Posted by Team BassBuds on

Ali, our amazing guest blogger, went to in the fantastic vibrant capital of the north, Manchester to meet celebrities backstage at the Key 103 Live Concert! Whilst the rain was torrential, it didn’t stop “our Ali” from meeting and greeting some of the hottest celebrities right now! Read about who she met and what they said!


A weekend in Manchester –  mmm lovely. Two days of meeting and greeting some of the biggest celebrities backstage at the Key 103 Live concert at the Manchester Evening News Arena and the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

On Saturday I arrived in Manchester and I was met by a gaggle of screaming teenagers! “Wow!! Is this all for me?” I thought. It turned out they weren’t screaming for me… what a surprise. It was all for Union J and Professor Green… ah well, never mind.

I entered the backstage area and I was amazed by the heat that hit me. I mean tropical is great, but I had a long day backstage in the heat! It seemed daunting, but thankfully I was welcomed by the lovely backstage organiser Joy Montgomery who made me feel at ease. The BassBuds Team had its very own stall backstage and there was no music to be heard! So, naturally, we treated everyone to some deep house, played through our amazing Portable BassBoomz Speakers.

As the concert started, there was a lot of hustle and bustle in our backstage area, but it was clear that even with everything going on, BassBuds and BassBoomz were causing a big stir!

Neon Jungle, four young and funky women who looked colourful and lively, came over to see us. First impressions, they were REALLY impressed with the BassBuds Collections.

I connected my iPhone to the BassBoomz via Bluetooth and played a tune. That’s when they were blown away, “Man, that is sick!” they said. Clearly Neon Jungle were loving both the style AND the sound, so they bagged themselves BassBuds and BassBoomz.

Straight from his amazing performance on stage, Professor Green came to the BassBuds stand. He remembers getting his BassBuds at Musicalize in London and tells us how much he likes them, before getting another pair of BassBuds and BassBoomz.

One of our favourite X-Factor boybands, Union J, were next off stage and Josh was the first to come over and see what all the fuss around BassBuds was about. And BassBuds did not disappoint. In fact, George , Josh , JJ and Jaymi were umming and aahing for ages because they couldn’t pick the colours they wanted! BassBuds do have one of the largest colour range in the world, so it’s no surprise all the boys from Union J kept changing their minds about their colour combinations. A few hours after they left, they returned to us to say the BassBoomz portable speakers were “Awesome!” and “Wicked!”.

Wretch32 already has BassBuds but he was now in love with the BassBoomz! He told us he was having an after-party and BassBoomz were providing the music, loud and clear!




Backstage, the celebs kept coming to BassBuds for more. John Newman was very excited to see our speakers and he said “Gonna charge these up now and use them!” – another after-party powered by BassBoomz.
