A pair of musicians from Havering described performing at the Brit Awards after-party as a “surreal” night they are not likely to forget.

Christopher Hatwell of Owen Close, Collier Row and Nick Engel performed at the after party of the British Phonographic Industry’s (Brit) annual pop music awards on February 21 at the O2 Arena.

Chris Hatwell told the Recorder: “It was a surreal night, definitely one to remember.

“Wiley, Chipmunk and Big Nasty were there, we got to speak to a few people and in the end it went on to about three in the morning.

“With the single we’re doing, a local grime artist just reached out to us and it stemmed from there.”

The two guitarists have become well-known after their cover of the theme song to the television show Game of Thrones went viral on Facebook.

NIRIS are currently producing music for films, including an upcoming film called The Matador’s Cape.
