Good company for a good cause
In Good Company is a collective of more than 20 North Coast musicians who got together to make an album earlier this year and are now keen to play live for a good cause.
Group leader Horace Bevan said that it was originally just a labour of musical love and they had no commercial intentions for the album. But having realised its potential they decided to develop it as a community-minded venture.
“This event is timely, as the Soup Kitchen has lost one of its major end-of-year fundraising events and this concert will help compensate for that loss,” Horace said.
“Both charities provide very basic services to people and this show can make a real financial difference before Christmas.
“The mission of In Good Company is to acknowledge those people in our local area who are homeless, in hardship or hungry. In the making of the album, which brought many talented musical friends together, the vibe was always grass roots, so it seemed a natural progression to do something for the community that was ‘grass roots’ as well.
“All proceeds from the event, including album sales, will go to the charities, so come along and be a part of a local event making a difference.”
The concert promises to be a special musical experience and features a wealth of talent on stage, including Cath Simes, Roy Wilders, Luke Vassella, Alan Park, Rick Fenn, John Glen, Jesse Balfour, Glen Massey, Geoff Massey, Scott Hills, Jamie Sullivan, Tim Corcoran, Stephen Bocking, Lenny Reilly, Johnny Harris, Gary Pinkerton, Brett Thompson, Allen Pegg, Isaac Vincent, Daniel Pinkerton, Jamie Ashforth and S Sorrensen.
The group will perform next Thursday, November 12 from 7.30pm at the Lismore Star Court Theatre. Tickets are available at NORPA and all Northern Star offices.
