Goodwill to all men isn’t just for the Christmas season you know – care and concern should extend well into the New Year. Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate, the classic and acoustic rock covers band from Camden, have invited an eclectic mix of friends, all with only two things in common – the desire to play good music and raise money for the more than deserving Save The Children. As well as some classic rock covers from Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate the crowd will be trated to the loud and chaotic Donkeybox, Jay Stapley, guitarist and deserving owner of seven platinum awards, one of the BBC’s New Generation artists Kathryn Thomas, harmonious on the flute, and singer songwriter David Lunas.
All funds raised by will go towards Save the Children’s new campaign No Child Born to Die, which aims to dramatically cut the number of children under the age of five dying from simple complications such as pneumonia and diarrhoea. The children’s charity says if children were routinely vaccinated, the death toll, which currently sits at 8 million children a year, could be cut by up to a quarter.
Malcolm, guitarist and singer of Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate says ‘simple and inexpensive treatments can save children from dying. Even a small amount of money can make a huge difference. I’ve been delighted by the enthusiasm of so many great musicians to support this fundraising event.’
So head on down and lend your support.
