Big gig for the community

In Good Company is a collective of more than 20 Northern Rivers musicians who came together (with the guidance of songwriter/guitarist Horace Bevan) to make an album called, appropriately, In Good Company.

Horace and In Good Company will showcase songs from the album (which were written or co-written by Horace) as well as other songs by the individual artists.

The music will cover genres from blues to Latin when In Good Company comes to Lismore's Star Court Theatre on Thursday, November 12, for a community concert to raise money for two deserving charities, the Soup Kitchen and the Mental Health Support Group.

It will be a huge night of local music - Horace Bevan, Cath Simes, Roy Wilders, Luke Vassella, Alan Park, Rick Fenn, John Glen, Jesse Balfour, Glen Massey, Geoff Massey, Scott Hills, Jamie Sullivan, Tim Corcoran, Stephen Bocking, Lenny Reilly, Johnny Harris, Gary Pinkerton, Brett Thompson, Allen Pegg, Isaac Vincent, Daniel Pinkerton and Jamie Ashforth.

S Sorrensen will MC the event.

The artists will perform tracks from the album, as well as their own material. (Except for S, whose last album was released on cassette and was critically reclaimed by rubbish bins everywhere.)

Go along, have some fun, listen to some local tunes, and support your community.

Tickets are $50, which includes a copy of the album, a glass of something refreshing, and the show.

Doors open at 7pm.

Tickets are available at all Northern Star offices - Goonellabah (6620 0500), Casino (6662 2666), Ballina (6686 0022) and Byron (6685 6358). Also at The Northern Rivers Echo office in Lismore (6622 2888) and Norpa (6622 0300).
