A well-known Weston-super-Mare rocker will be hosting a one-off gig on the Grand Pier tomorrow (Friday), all in the name of a children's charity.
Daz’s Rock 4 Charity has raised about £20,000 in the past two years for Variety, which collects funds for sick, disabled and disadvantaged children.
Money raised through the last two concerts has been used to support pupils at Fosse Way special needs school, near Bath, and also helped provide a minibus for its children.
The show’s organiser, Darren ‘Daz’ Sims, first started organising charity concerts in 2007 and has raised more than £250,000 for good causes in the years since then.
This year’s event will be headlined by Weston band Racey, who had top-10 hits in the late 1970s and early 1980s with songs including Lay Your Love On Me, Some Girls and Runaround Sue.
Other acts include Jet Pack Jesus, Silver Train featuring Teresa Alexander and Andrea Hirthe.
Former boxing world champion Glenn Catley will also be swapping his gloves for a microphone when he takes to the stage to perform a song with Daz and friends.
Daz’s Rock 4 Charity will take place at the Grand Pier at 6.30pm tomorrow (Friday) and a variety of bands, musicians and singers will perform until 1am.
Tickets, priced £10 in advance or £12 on the night, can be purchased from the pier’s retail shop, by contacting 01934 646155 or online via the Grand Pier’s website.
Alternatively, tickets can also be bought by contacting Daz on 07976 629132.
