Live & Louder tour to raise funds for disabled children living in the UK
SOME of the UK’s hottest acts from the thriving British Asian music scene are set to feature in a live showcase tour, hitting three cities later this year as part of the Live & Louder Tour.
Electro-pop and bhangra fusion group, Swami, will perform tracks from their eagerly awaited album live on stage alongside renowned British Asian artists including, H Dhami, Romy, Abbas Hasan, Mona Singh, DJ Ri, Sham D and girl group, Serese.
The three events, set to take place in the Nottingham, Birmingham and Cardiff branches of The Glee Club in May and June will be hosted by DJ’s SonnyJi from BBC’s Asian Network and Tindy Gerewal, who found fame as one of ‘The Family’ on the hit Channel 4 TV show.
News of the exciting showcase has quickly spread across the industry and Radio One DJ, Nihal, has backed the three events. He said: “Swami are one of the most consistently innovative bands that I’ve come across at Radio One. These live shows will be an exercise in audio adrenaline.”
The Live & Louder Tour series is the brainchild of Gareth Aston, Events Manager at national charity, Caudwell Children, who are staging the events to raise money for disabled children living in the UK.
“After several years working in the British Asian music industry I was fully aware of the passion and enthusiasm for these type of events and I wanted to combine my experience with my desire to help sick and disabled children. The events are all about the music but our motivation is definitely the children.” commented Gareth.
The three Live & Louder events take place on Wednesday 25th May in Nottingham, Wednesday 1st June in Birmingham and Sunday 12th June in Cardiff. Tickets are on sale now, priced £8 each, and expected to sell out fast. Tickets are available via the Glee Club Box Office on 0871 472 0400 or by visiting www.glee.co.uk.
Caudwell Children is one of the UK’s fastest growing children’s charities. Since 2000 the charity has provided services worth over £13,000,000 and helped improve the lives of thousands of disabled children with over 350 different medical conditions.
