It’s time to whip out your summer calendar and add another wonderful event to your list of adventures! Set aside your evening on 5th July 2017 for some of the best local blues music courtesy of Bank of Blues.
The London-based band has generously dedicated another evening in aid of the GLFB. This will be the fourth annual music fundraiser and we’d love you to join us at Harry’s Bar, a basement bar and restaurant, in Ironmonger Lane from 7pm onwards for an event that is not to be missed.
Playing together for almost 30 years, Bank of Blues comprises musicians who work in the financial sector. And, they’ve been raising money for charitable causes since their first gig at Christmas in 1988.
Says Eden Riche, event organiser and lead singer of the band, “The truth is we love the guitar heavy blues-rock genre as we all grew up listening to bands influenced by this style – The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton and Gary Moore. It’s very powerful music and lends itself to our line-up of drums, bass, two guitars and harmonica.”
In 2013, Bank of Blues won the inaugural Finance Rocks, a charity battle of the bands between global finance organisations, held at the iconic 100 Club in Oxford Street.
Blues for a cause
The fundraiser will showcase talented singer-songwriters Charlotte Beausire and Adnan Dajani who works at Dutch bank ING. Expect them to sweep the evening with vocals and acoustic guitar between sets.
After the tremendous success of last year’s event, the 5th July gig will raise money for a wide range of ongoing direct services, including mobility training, telephone helplines, guide dog training and welfare advice.
So, get your plans rolling for a cause that makes a huge impact to the lives of so many of Londoners, and have a fantastic time doing so.
