Bare Faced Music

East Hastings Sea Angling Club, Hastings - Sunday, 7th October 2018

Written By Andy Gunton

Blues, and more, for St Michael's Hospice.

After promoting two gigs at the ill fated Gecko Bar in St Leonards, back in 2014 and 2015, Barry Taylor is back using music to raise money for St Michael's Hospice, this time at a new venue.

Barry has a history of promoting great gigs, as he is the man who booked the Sex Pistols to play on Hastings Pier back in July 1976!

On Sunday, 7th October Barry's Bare Faced Music will take place at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association club, in Hastings. That's the one by the RNLI Lifeboat station on The Stade by the way.

The gig gets under way at 2.30pm features a range of great acts, and is free to enter, although there will be collection buckets on hand for donations to St Michael's Hospice.

Please give generously.

Top of the bill is Roger Hubbard with his new band. Roger is well known to local audiences for his wonderful Blues guitar playing, so this will be a treat.

As will be Pete Brown and Friends, fresh from their recent gig at The Albion.

For the uninitiated Pete Brown wrote the lyrics for many of Cream's greatest hits, back in the 1960's, including 'Sunshine of Your Love', 'I Feel Free' and 'White Room'.

But he is also well known as a poet, and musician.

Pete will be joined by, amongst others, Kevin Armstrong, best known for his guitar work with David Bowie, and more recently Iggy Pop.

Also on the bill are The Other Band, Eric Marmer and Friends, and The Marshmellows.

It promises to be a great day of fine music, and all in aid of a very worthy cause as well.
