Rock gig will help homeless people


Music lovers are in for a treat when four respected Rugby bands take to the stage for a charity gig.

It is being held at Rugby Railway Club on September 30, 8pm, as part of the Musicians against Homelessness project.

There will be psychobilly surf rock from Hanzo, pure rock and roll from Stupid Boots, clever lyrics and rhymes with an acoustic twist from Courthouse and Pirate punk rock of The Mutineers.

The aim is to raise funds and awareness for the homeless communities around the country.

Steve Bryan, of The Mutineers, said: “We are splitting the proceeds between Crisis and Hope 4.

“The room has a capacity of 180, so if we could sell all the tickets that would be great.”

He said it promises to be a great night in aid of really worthwhile charities.

“We hope to see lots of people there,” added Steve.

“This is a great chance to see four amazing local bands at a great venue and raise money for a very worthwhile cause.”

Tickets need to be ordered in advance and are available by calling 07964 546097 for £5 and any donations will be gratefully received on the door.

Hope4 is based in Rugby and aims to relieve poverty among homeless and badly-housed people in the borough.

Crisis is the UK national charity for single homeless people. It offers year-round education, employment, housing and well-being services.
