Fundraising Concert – Nepal Earthquake Disaster

Back in the heady days of the 60s Henry Fawcett and Brian Taylor formed the
Johnny Taylor 5 up in the North East and played gigs all over the North including
The Liverpool Cavern as a support band for the Beatles, and later again in Liverpool
 as a support band for The Rolling stones.

Over the years they played in different line-ups,  appearing on The Jimmy Young Show,
BBC Bristol, and with Dave Allen on The Middlesbrough Empire.

To date they have never stopped rolling and now play a vast range of music from
the 1920s to the 1970s, with decades of experience of playing live events.

In 2005 they teamed up with Graham Thompson, a brilliant rock n roll pianist who had played on cruise liners for over ten years supporting artists like Bob Monkhouse,  Carl Denver, Bert Weedon,
Bony M,  and the Rocking Berries. Later two talented young singers from the North East, Lisa Lawlor and Wendy Moutrey  joined the band adding glamour, style and a modern repertoire including songs by Amy Weinhouse.

The Khiraule Education Project , promoting the concert, is a local South Lakeland Charity, who support a village and a school in the Khiraule Valley, a remote area in Nepal, east of Everest.
This is a fund raising concert to support people in this remote area devastated by the recent

That said, the event will be a foot stomping evening. The band play all sorts of music for different functions and this year the theme is a 50s and 60s rock and roll dance night. So come along and dance, jive and rock to all your old favourites.
