Our Knees up for Nepal benefit gig at The Latest Music Bar tomorrow has been profiled in Brighton Source Magazine.
Advance tickets are available here. Limited tickets available on the door.
Fab Fundraiser Friday!
We all love an occasion to party, especially when it’s for a good cause. Strike A Light are hosting just the night for us at The Latest Music Bar. Knees Up For Nepal is a night of music, comedy and DJ sets raising funds for the 8m people affected by the recent Nepal earthquakes.
We’ll experience an exhilarating night of live music from soul and funk originals Gyratory Allstars, ska-hugging beat poets Oscillator and the exciting eleven piece big band Fat 45. We’ll also hear from representatives of the Brighton & Sussex Nepalese Society, and our debonair compere for the evening will be stand-up poet and storyteller Jonny Fluffypunk. If that’s not enough, Oscillator DJs and Greekboy will be spinning tunes to keep us dancing into the early hours.
All proceeds from the night will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee for their work in the region. For further information visit the Strike A Light website.

The 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, comedy, cabaret, comperes and a DJ set, all taking place at The Latest Music Bar in Brighton on Friday 19th June 7.30pm-2am. Save the date!

Bands, performers, organisers and venue are volunteering their time to perform at this event, to help fundraise to support all those affected in the earthquake in Nepal. Arts and heritage organisation Strike a Light will donate all funds from the evening to the Disasters Emergency Committee.

Music will be provided by three well known bands, who live and work locally, and who have agreed to do guest slots at the venue to support the fundraiser. Other acts will be a compere, comedy and cabaret, topped off with a DJ set to keep you dancing into the night!

More details of these will follow soon, so keep an eye on this page for regular updates!

“Donations will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee to help provide shelter for the homeless and food water and essential items to those who have lost everything.”

Advance tickets for this will be available direct from The Latest Music Bar on 14-17, Manchester Street, Brighton BN2 1TF (or will be later this week – so keep an eye out).

There will also be tickets available on the door on the night on a first come-first served basis. £10 (£8 conc).
