Bloxwich gig just the tonic for charity this Saturday!

Red Venice rock Bloxwich!

Music from three live bands will be just the tonic for a Midland charity in Bloxwich this weekend.

Red Venice, Scarbelly Blues and Beechwood Blues Band will all be taking to the stage at Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre in Elmore Row on Saturday 18 February.

The gig will raise money for the Upper GI Blues Charity which is a support group for patients and carers who have been diagnosed with upper gastrointestinal disorders – primarily cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions of the gullet, stomach, pancreas and liver.

Red Venice will be getting the crowd going with classic rock covers while Scarbelly Blues will bring Black Country blues to Bloxwich and the Beechwood Blues Band will entertain with acoustic songs.

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show is set to start at 8pm.

Tickets cost £4 and £2 for children aged under 14.

Steve Smith, Red Venice bass player, said: “This is such a worthy cause so come along and rock Bookmark Bloxwich this weekend.”

The charity was the idea of two clinical nurse specialists, Jo Harvey and Tina Davies from Sandwell Hospital and was the first multi-diagnosis support group for UGI conditions in the country.

Charity chairman Brian Childs said:

“We hold a number of social and special fundraising events throughout the year.

“Since our group was started we have been able to provide over £150,000 worth of equipment and research funding to our local hospitals. This has included new endoscope equipment, electronic beds, electronic recliner chairs and specialist syringe drivers.”
