The store shows the Boots makers origins in music with a fully functioning vintage duke box, with the window display being the makeshift stage setup.

Dr. Martern’s already celebrate music with their very own Camden Boot Room gig venue!

Tonight Tom Grennan is playing tonight for a one off intimate performance as part of Dr Martern’s presents: Eight Gigs, Eight Days in Eight UK Cities.

The 23 Year old, Bedford –born singer-songwriter had no idea he could sing had it not been for a Karaoke session with his friends and now the singer songwriter would not be performing in front of sell out shows nationwide and we would not get to enjoy his brilliant debut album, ’Lighting Matches.’

The Debut album had reached number five in the UK Album charts, showing off the Songwriters real talent.

The short but sweet show was not short on perfection singing a hand full of songs from his debut album. This year saw the snappy guitar laden song “Sober” and the follow up Single, both performed at tonight’s show.

The set took off with the highly emotional discharged song ‘Praying’. Performed full of emotion as if it had a special meaning in his life.

‘Something in the Water’ showed off Tom Grennan’s vocal talent and the crowd definitely wanted more.

Spirts were high with Tom Grennan’s full interaction with the fans shouting across the store, how is everyone doing tonight…..and hope it’s been a worthwhile trip down to Brighton. He promised to speak to everyone one of you after the show and wittily stated he would see everyone on the train back to London!

By the completely encaptivated, ecstatic applause by the audience, it would apparent that it would not be the last time they would see Tom Grennan play live again, as the last sell-out tour is anything to go by!
