Our younger brother Tony has been learning guitar at a local school for some time now. The group he learned to play with at evening class got together to do a one off show in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society. After many months of practicing, planning and hard work a date was set for 28th November 2014, the Venue Bryn Labour Club Ashton in Makerfield near Wigan.
The group call themselves the Unknown and are made up of 8 musicians Tony Ward, Tony Danson, Dave Grant, Roger Ennis, Mike Jones, Bill Edwards, Graham Vernon, Steve Hitchen with Mark Goulding as producer and Guru! They learned to play guitar together in the same guitar class at night school. On the 28th December 2014 all their hard work and study paid off as they played their first live gig to a packed crowd at Bryn Labor Club in Ashton In Makerfield. Over 140 people turned out to see the group go through a repertoire of songs ranging from the Beatles to Rod Stuart and the Foo Fighters to Eric Clapton. A fantastic £811 was raised from ticket sales, a hot post supper and a raffle which was donated to the Alzheimer’s Society to help in their battle against Alzheimer’s Disease. This brings our Worried About My Daddy Alzheimer’s campaign total to £11,851.40. Please visit our Just Giving Page https://www.justgiving.com/worriedaboutmydaddy to see the latest updates.
It was a brilliant night and everyone really enjoyed themselves, we would like to give a massive thanks to Tony Ward for organizing the event and the Unknown for a fantastic evening of song and humour. We would also like to thank everyone helping out on the night. Special mention to Taiye Lopez for some fantastic pictures a selection of which are below.
The very best of wishes
Chris and Dave Ward 🙂
