On 12/7 at 7pm at Maroochy RSL Club, I'm arranging a benefit night for 'Cas' Casalaina, lead singer/guitarist from Legendary 'After Hours' Band, to raise some money to help him & his family out, he has cancer, and has had regular 'Chemo' for some time. Cas hasn't been able to work in his day job nor in the band since Jan 2006 & may not be well enough to return until august 06, so funds are very low. He is a great guy, well respected in the music industry and loves his music. We are all rallying around a fellow artist/muso in trouble.
Maroochy RSL Management is supplying the venue + sound/lighting plus staffing and will contribute also.
After Hours + Vaughan Jones on Keys (Adam Harvey Band), along with the Smokin Crawdads, will supply backing & the cream of Brisbane/GCoast & Sunshine Coast entertainers performing &/or attending, (see part list below).
We (Australian Club Entertainment) are supplying & organizing all the entertainment on the night.
Of course you and your staff are invited along on the night if you would like to attend, without people coming to the venue we can't make it successful night and raise any money. It is early days yet, but we need some sponsors soon as possible.
By the way it's FREE ENTRY on the night as we can't charge entry………..
The finance will come from kind donations and raffles on the night.
So far, and by no means a short list, & there are more artists yet to reply……
