A Sendai-tional way to help make a difference

THE horrific scenes of the devastating tsunami in Japan earlier this year were difficult to put into words.

When mother nature strikes hard, the results are truly terrifying.

Thousands lost their lives. Many, many more lost their homes, their businesses and life as they had known it.

The headlines might have faded, but in the affected areas, it will take years before the scars from March’s destruction fade.

On Sunday, Yokohama Tyres – whose parent company lost some sales people in the disaster – will be hosting a night of classic rock sounds in aid of the Japan Tsunami Appeal.

Marshall Amplification have offered the use of the theatre at their headquarters in Bletchley for the gig, titled Sounds for Sendai, which will be headlined by Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash.

Special guests at the show will be Del Bromham’s Stray and city talents Motherlode.

Aside from the live sounds, collectors will be met with a charity auction of music memorabilia hosted by DJ David ‘Kid’ Jensen.

Among the lots up for grabs will be a custom built Marshall Class 5 amp.

Yamaha have donated one of their Pacifica guitars, which will be signed by a whole host of musicians.

Bid the most and you could be the person who wins the chance to roadie for Uriah Heap for the day at one of their European dates. Plenty of other bits and pieces and general merchandise will be going begging too.

This is your chance to help raise a packet of cash for an area in desperate need, and in return for your efforts you get some solid rock action.

Whoever said Sunday is a day of rest, is wrong this week. Split with £20 and enjoy yourselves.

Doors open at 6pm.
