Charity gig to rock Grand Pier
PUBLISHED: 09:30 26 January 2012
A ROCK extravaganza on Weston's Grand Pier is expected to raise thousands for a vital charity supporting teenage cancer sufferers.
Daz’s Rock 4 Charity event will feature a smorgasbord of musical talent from Weston and further afield, and will take place tomorrow (Fri) with doors opening at 6pm.
The concert was originally organised to raise money for special cancer treatment for North Somerset mum Kerry Dunn, who has cancer in her mesentery tissue.
Although North Somerset Primary Care Trust then offered the funding, it has come too late for Kerry, who is now unable to have the rare Cyberknife treatment.
At Kerry’s request the money raised through the event will now go towards the Teenage Cancer Trust South West, and hundreds of people are now expected to turn up for the event.
The acts appearing will include West Country ska collective The Communicators, folk rock act Flash Harry, rockers Beyond Control and indie band Capone, while organiser and musician Darren Sims will also play as Daz and Friends.
Kerry’s husband, Craig, will also be performing with his act Silver Train.
There is also a range of special guests, drawn from the best young local talent, which includes Teresa Alexander, Ryan Mills, Jake Sims, Loki Saunders, Stacey Lou Hunt and Mike Cox.
The Rifftoads Roadshow and DJ Smudger will also be playing throughout the evening.
The event will kick off at 7.30pm and is expected to end at 1am.
Tickets are priced £9.50, and are available from the pier retail shop, by ringing Daz on 07979 629132 or emailing email@example.com
