If you are looking for two days of amazing music, or maybe would like to see some musical talent in the area, or just want to help a great cause. Well on February 3rd and 4th, the fundraiser they call, “City of Music” will be taking place at The Empire in Coventry, and it really is the place to be for live music.
The events are in aid of The Coventry Music Museum and it’s of course, essential that it keeps going for 2021 and beyond. Here is a chance to buy a ticket, and make a donation, or even bid in the Sunday live auction. Including some amazing one-off items from Specials Bassman Horace Panter.
Museum Director and gig organiser Neil Twigger said: “I’m really excited about this fundraising weekend not only is it raising money for a cause close to my heart. It is giving local bands the chance to play in the best music venue in our city and one with in my opinion the best sound systems.
“What I like about these gigs is that they are family friendly with tickets as cheap as £20 for 2 adults and 2 under 14’s per day which means parents can introduce their young ones to live music in a safe environment and it won’t break the bank
“The Coventry Music Museum is totally run by volunteers money for rent and utilities for the museum are paid for by the entrance fee and fundraising so this can make a massive difference to keeping it up and running.”
This weekend will feature local bands and solo artists Ruder than U , Lost The Plot and Barbdwire, Wilde, Voodoo Kings, The Session, Skaledonia, The Baines, Lloyd McGrath Collective, Nick Knibb AKA The Archbishop, Danny Ansell and a rare appearance from Special Brew. Also in attendance as MC, will be BBC CW’s very own new music guru Brody Swain. Details can be found on The Facebook page and www.coventryempire.co.uk
And tickets are available from The Coventry Music Museum at the 2 Tone Village Walsgrave Road, online via the Empire web site and from the former Coventry Telegraph building in Corporation Street in the city centre. Massive thanks to all involved..
