Celebrating the Decades at relaunched Vincent
A BAND will play a charity gig to relaunch a pub as a music venue next week.
Decades Apart will be at The Vincent in Stevenage on Saturday May 26 to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society and Macmillan Cancer Support as well as to promote the pub as a revitalised venue.
Guitarist and singer Carl Dawson said he got together with the pub’s new management to arrange the night and kick start a new era of live music at The Hyde neighbourhood pub. He added that they chose the two charities because they were dear to band member’s hearts.
He said: “I believe that in these hard times doing good things for other people is not only a good cause in itself but an uplifting one for those taking part.”
A new EP from the Stevenage four-piece rock outfit entitled The Cold Light of Day will be on sale on the night with all profit going to the charities, as well as proceeds from a raffle of prizes donated by businesses.
