On the December 9th 2016 Th’Unknown were back rockin’ it at the Ashton Labour Club in aid of the ‘Worried About My Daddy’ Alzheimer’s Appeal.
Now, Friday 9th December turned out to be a cold, wet, miserable winters night and not the type of night to be venturing out…. you would think. Ha! Unless of course you are going to the local Labour Club to enjoy fine wine / beer, a cracking hot-pot supper and fantastic music. An amazing turnout of 120 people packed into the Ashton Labour Club to watch Th’Unknown performed two sets. The first set included lots of pop and rock tunes and the second set was dedicated to well-known Christmas favorites. All were extremely well received by the audience who, by the second set, were up singing, dancing and having a fine old time. In fact the dance floor was jam packed way past the final encore. A testimony to a fantastic night both from the bands perspective and the crowd.
A fantastic £671 was raised for the ‘Worried About My Daddy’ Alzheimer’s Appeal bringing our total to a fantastic £18,290 against our target of £20,000. Boy it’s getting close now!!
If anyone would care to donate to help us across that final hurdle please go to our Just Giving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/worriedaboutmydaddy If you would like further information about Alzheimer’s Disease please check out our blog at: http://worriedaboutmydaddy.com/
A massive THANKS to everyone involved in the event, from those who helped on the night with the set-up, ticket sales, raffle and the delicious hot-pot supper etc. Special thanks also goes to Taiye Lopez for taking the amazing photos for the Blog and to Tony Ward for all the time he put in to organizing the event. Well done once again to Th’Unknown (Bill Edwards, Tony Danson, Mike Pines, Dave Grant, Roger Ennis, Steve Hitchen, Graham Vernon, and Tony Ward with arrangement and production by Mark Goulding) for a fantastic night of music and dance and of course to everyone who turned out on a very inhospitable night and those who donated to this fantastic cause.
The band are looking to do a few more gigs this year so keep your eyes peeled as tickets will go fast. As soon as we know when I’ll post on the Blog and on Facebook.
