Rockers from across the north will descend on the city tomorrow night for the annual Rockers Reunion at the Nerve Centre.
The mammoth gig, featuring five of the finest rock bands from across the north, will raise money for Foyle Down Syndrome Trust and Children in Crossfire.
Organiser John Kelly saysfunds raised at the event, now in its 11th year, are a massive source of support to families of Down Syndrome Children in the northwest.
“Back in 2003 myself and Dee Jenkins set up the Rockers Reunion fundraising gig,” says John. “Dee has a son with Downs Syndrome and wanted to organise a fundraising gig for the Trust as they had been a massive source of support to his family. This is still the case today.
“The Rockers Reunion is the one gig of the year where rockers can meet up with old friends and catch up. In a lot of cases people will only see each other at the gigs. It’s just £5 to get in - 2ell worth it for a great night of rock and to support really worthwhile charities.”
This year’s line-up features The Rubber Plants, Ireland’s top Led Zeppelin tribute band. Big riffed titans of Derry rock, Triggerman, will also take to the stage. Thin Lizzy tribute band Kings Call, grunge metal band Seneron as well as Dublin rockers Half Shot will also lift the rafters on the Nerve Centre on the night.
The Rockers Reunion gig takes place tomorrow night Saturday September 28th at 8pm. Tickets are available from the www.nervecentre.org or on the door on the night.
