This year’s Mayor of Spelthorne is Cllr. Alfred Friday, a Sunbury East councillor and local resident, who is a great supporter of the music nights at Sunbury Cricket Club and the Club is delighted to continue its tradition and stage a music night in aid of his charities.
The Club has assembled the usual suspects from Sunbury’s music fraternity to play under the name of The Chain Gang in honour of the Mayor’s chain of office. His charities are Parkinson’s UK (Spelthorne Branch); One-to-One, which organises social activities for adults with learning difficulties; and Home Start Spelthorne, which supports struggling young families with children.
The musicians will be giving their services free, so all the door money will go to the charities. The line-up will include guitarists Gerry Cook (The Saxons), Tim Renton (3AM), Mark Doyle (Marshall Taylor Band), Chris Allard (Little Hampton Band); bassists Colin Pattenden (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, The Nashville Teens), Roger Harding (East of Eden), Martin House (Life and Soul); keyboard player Kevin Welling (Stan Bland Band); harmonica ace Geoff Forester (just back from a blues cruise playing with the likes of Taj Mahal and Walter Trout) and Alan Worrell (drums) plus music night host and organiser, Paul Watts (vocals and guitar). Karl Green (Herman’s Hermits) is hoping to be in the UK to join in.
It will be a great night of top class rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s R&B rock and country. It’s all for great causes and will be a fun community night, so please support it. Doors 8.00pm £10.
