Inspired to stage a charity concert

Worcester Editorial 6th Jun, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

A CONCERT to raise cash in memory of a county man who passed away following a battle with Motor Neurone Disease will be held at Huntingdon Hall.

Miss Pearl and The Rough Diamonds will take to the stage next Friday (June 12) for an event promoted by John Banner Charitable Promotions.

The gig is sure to be an emotional occasion for Jo and Steve ‘Crazy Legs’ Hurrell as they perform in memory of their late son.

Andy Hurrell lost his battle against the disease last month and all proceeds from the event will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Society.

A raffle will be held during the interval of the gig which will see Jo aka Miss Pearl team up with the Rough Diamonds led by Steve on lead guitar and vocals.

A night of high energy 1950s music from the Queen of Rockability is guaranteed with Miss Pearl taking her audience through an evening rock and roll and country jump blues in her own barnstorming style.

Backed up by The Rough Diamonds with Steve, the multi-talented Stefan Agopsowicz slapping the doghouse bass and vocals, and the amazing drummer Rob Murray Mason holding it all together with his snake-like sound and mesmerising Latin rhythm, the evening is one to remember.

A wide range of material from the likes of Ruth Brown, Wanda Jackson, Bill Haley, Johnny Burnette and Patsy Cline will be on the set list and guaranteed to leaving you wanting more.

The gig starts at 8pm and tickets are £12.50 (£10 for concessions)

Call 01905 611427 to book tickets and for more information.
