Rodfest - Wednesday 10th January, Newcastle upon Tyne

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Any basschatters in Newcastle this Wednesday night might like to pop along to the O2 Academy on Westgate Road for a multi band charity fundraiser in memory of a lovely lad and fine vocalist who was taken way too soon last October aged just 42. Monies raised are going to create a fund to provide bursaries to young musicians.

5 top bands for a tenner and all proceeds going to help young musicians chasing the dream just as Rod was right up until his untimely death. 

If you are around, please come along and support this gig. You can even heckle my hamfisted bassery at no extra charge 😎

The Kill, great live band, I've seen them in Coundon working mens' club a few times and in the old Bishop Auckland Belvedere.

Hope you have a great night.

Yes, the Kill (and their Alta Ego’s Bon Jovi Forever) are indeed a great band, but all the bands played out of their skins on Wednesday (even if I say so myself) and just over £3,000 was raised on a cold mid-week January night. Hats off to the rock loving music fans of the North East who came out and made this event a huge success.

I didn't know Rod personally, but I know people who did. He seemed very genuine and one of the nicest guys out there.

In fact, I was going to audition for one of his bands once, but I wasn't able to audition due to other commitments.

I'm really glad to hear that it was a success.
