Local musos come together
If you want to hear some of the best local musicians showcasing their skills in an evening of acoustic and electric blues, jazz, pop, rock, ballads, country and Latin-American music (I think that covers it all) AND if you would feel extra good if that huge concert was an event that gave the money to two local charities, then have we got a gig for you!
In Good Company is a collective of more than 20 Northern Rivers musicians who came together to make an album called In Good Company (of course).
Now the collective will perform in a charity concert at the Star Court Theatre in Lismore next Thursday, November 12, to raise money for the Soup Kitchen and the Mental Health Support Group.
Organised by Horace Bevan, who wrote or co-wrote the songs on the album, the concert will feature (besides himself) 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, Jamie Ashforth and other special guests. The artists will perform selected tracks from the album as well as some of their own material.
And that wordly man of words S Sorrensen will compere the concert with all the class and self-obsession for which he is known.
Tickets are $50, which includes a glass of bubbly, a copy of the album, and the show.
Doors open at 7pm.
