On Friday 6th November, Readers Interiors will be hosting a Charity Rock Night in Aid of the Isle of Wight Youth Trust with great local acts Lewis Berry Band, BaDow and Dreamer Joe taking to the stage at the Riverside Centre in Newport to raise much-needed funds.
These talented musicians have been a feature of the local live music scene and have all enjoyed performing at local festivals this year. Renowned local Blues/Rock bands Lewis Berry Band performed at IOW Festival along with Dreamer Joe (featured image), who opened the main stage at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival. BaDow (pictured left) took to the stage at Bestival with their newly released EP ‘In My Arms’ and will be bringing the same energy to the Charity Rock Night.
Lewis Berry, lead vocalist and guitar player of Lewis Berry Band (pictured right) said:
“We’re looking forward to being part of an evening that will contribute to the great work the trust does for young people”.
Organisers have tried to keep this event accessible to all Islanders and with tickets available for just £6 from the Riverside Centre, Readers Interiors and Gold Tone Music or £8 on the door, it really is a great value night of entertainment.
Event organiser, Mike Reader, said:
“We were very much wanting to arrange a gig of this nature in conjunction with our family shop Readers Interiors to raise money for IOW Youth Trust. We really felt that because the Trust deals with 25 yrs and younger problems, that the Trust is such an important Charity. We also felt that the Gig fits so well, age wise, with the whole concept of the IOW Youth Trust.”
The generosity and support of Readers Interiors in putting on this event has been astounding. Eileen Monks OBE, Director of the Youth Trust, explained:
“Readers are fantastic supporters of the Youth Trust and have really gone above and beyond with this event. We hope to see a lot of community support with this event, not only for the Youth Trust but, also for these amazing bands.”
