Raising Funds for Disability Pride 2018.
Tickets also available from the Phil Starr Pavilion.
The first Disability Pride Brighton was such a fantastic success last July with over 2000 disabled people attending. The event will take place again this year on Saturday, 14th July at Hove Lawns. The team are holding a fundraiser evening featuring four amazing acts.
All of the acts have at least one member who has an impairment or disability, as was the case with the acts at last year’s festival.
Please come along and support the night so that Disability Pride Brighton 2018 is even bigger and better.
The fundraiser evening will take place as part of the B Right On Festival in Victoria Gardens in The Phil Starr Pavilion. Tickets are £10 each.
The Phil Starr Pavilion is a multi functional, fully accessible, heated performance, conference and community space with a licensed bar which is located on Victoria Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1WN.
The acts include:
ONE EYED JACKS – who are 7 musicians who burst onto the music scene in 2015 and are one of the hottest live bands in Brighton right now.
They crafted their powerful blend of classic Funk/Rock influence with modern RnB and pop songwriting creating a unique and captivating live experience. They mix soulful melodies, screaming guitars, punchy rhythms and sexy harmonies to create music which is as distinctive as it is powerful. Their energetic live performances are guaranteed to have audiences grooving from the first track.
SAM HUGHES – at only 20, Sam Hughes is the youngest Sir Elton John Tribute Act. Sam’s show takes people back with songs from four decades of Elton’s career - including Crocodile Rock, Pinball Wizard, Candle in the Wind and Your Song.
Sam really goes to town with his attention to detail - recreating Sir Elton’s moves, mannerisms and trademark sparkly costumes and glasses. He absolutely wowed the crowds at the Disability Pride Brighton festival last year and that’s why we have invited him to play at this fundraiser.
PAPER DRAGON - they are a young local band whose lead singer and guitarist, Michael Jones, has an insulin-dependent condition.
They have previously played and headlined Concorde 2, Hove Market, The Dome Theatre and the Haunt. Michael has additionally written a couple of songs he felt he needed to write about disability - Disablism and Mountain - which the band will be performing on the evening.
They went down so well at last year’s Disability Pride Brighton festival that we felt we just had to ask them to play at the fundraiser.
TORI AND ELLIOT - are a talented Duo who are just 18 but have been performing at live venues across the town and beyond for many years as a duet (acoustic sets) and also as part of a local Blues Band "Lee Ainsley's Blues Storm". Elliot Young is a former student of BIMM Brighton where he successfully studied guitar. Tori Mai Hobbs is currently studying for a degree in singer/songwriting at BIMM. They have written many original songs and recently recorded their first EP. They recently performed at the iconic 100 club in London and more locally at the Komedia as part of the Blues Band.
What an interesting and eclectic mix we have for you on the night! Please come and support Disability Pride Brighton. You won’t be disappointed.
