Arts and heritage organisation Strike a Light is organising a benefit gig to help support Nepal earthquake victims. The event will be a jam-packed night of live music, cabaret, comperes and a DJ set.
Bands, performers, organisers are volunteering their time to perform at this event, in support of all those affected in the earthquake in Nepal.
Bands include Fat 45, a blistering 11 piece big band bringing back the dance music of the 1940s & 50s with their slick quiffs, sharp suits, swingin’ hips and high heels. Crowned by the rich soulful voice of Dale de Ville, Fat 45 play rock & roll, rhythm & blues and jump jive, setting the dance floors alight wherever they go. Oscillator will also be playing at the benefit gig. Oscillator fuses a multitude of influences including Ska, Electro-Funk, Psychedelia, Beat Poetry and Jazz, with words that will touch you high and low.
Strike a Light will donate all funds from the evening to the Disasters Emergency Committee. A representative from the Brighton and Sussex Nepalese Society will also speak at the event. Advanced tickets available from the venue and on the door on the night on a first-come-first served basis. £10 (£8 conc).
