Pricey to play Womble Benefit – latest…

Here’s what we know so far – with just three days to go, confirmed performers for Monday’s benefit gig featuring Zoot and the Big Roll Band – Al Kirtley, Papa George, Paul Cox and Bob Simmons – will now be joined by Alan Price, who will perform a very special solo set from the piano.

Below is the press release that’s already been sent out by organisers.

PRESS RELEASE – Paul McCallum benefit: tickets will be available on the night

Organisers of the benefit concert for musician and loudspeaker manufacturer Paul McCallum have announced that any unsold tickets will be available on the night.

The event, which features Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band and Guests, takes place at O2 Academy 2, Islington on October 29th. Interest has been steadily building, both among PLASA members and other friends in the sound reinforcement industry, since it was announced.

Popular bass player (and original member of the Wombles) Paul McCallum was not only the brains behind PLASA member company, Wembley Loudspeaker, but has played with many stars over the years, including Billy Fury and Helen Shapiro. However, he is now suffering from an advanced form of Multiple System Atrophy and is confined to a hospice. The money raised will help meet Paul’s medical bills.

Meanwhile, tickets (priced at £20 each) are still available in advance via Eventbrite from the following link:
