The band Little Red Kings has come to the rescue of a special fundraising gig which needed to find a replacement headline act at the last minute.
The Under 1 Roof Training and Development Centre – run by Norwich-based homeless charity St Martin's Housing Trust – is presenting the Fair Weather Project tonight at Norwich Arts Centre. The show features performances by the Under 1 Roof band – The Undies – and will see people affected by homelessness share the stage with local music acts.
Ducking Punches had been due to be the hea dline act but had to pull out after lead singer Dan Allen broke his leg. A number of acts offered to step in, and the five-piece alternative roots rock and blues band Little Red Kings was picked as the new headline act. Other local acts performing tonight include 3½ Inch Floppy, Phillip Steven Rowe and Matt Watson.
The Fair Weather Project is all about exhibiting the talent of the members of Under-1-Roof Training and Development Centre. Money raised from the gig will go towards the running of the centre which helps adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The Fair Weather Project gig is at Norwich Arts Centre tonight at 7.30pm. To book, visit www.norwichartscentre.co.uk
