New band to perform at the Blue Ribbon Foundation’s fundraising ball in Norwich

A new band has been formed to entertain guests at the first ever fundraising ball for The Blue Ribbon Foundation.

The male cancer charity was formed by Norwich man Mel Lacey, whose recovery from prostate cancer prompted him to want to do something to help other men and to raise awareness.

On September 22, the foundation will host its first-ever 'posh frocks and DJs' ball at the Norfolk Suite in Sprowston Manor Hotel, and new group Random will be performing to help with the fundraising.

The group, formed by a team of experienced local musicians, was the idea of Coltishall-based lead vocalist Kym Blackman, a close friend of Mr Lacey. Also in the band is lead guitarist Pete Aindow, bass guitarist Harry Collins, drummer Simon Smyth, and keyboard player Carleton van Selman.

Disc jockey Carlo Valori will be taking the dancing into the early hours with his music collection.

Ball tickets cost �65 each and include a Buck's Fizz reception, three-course meal and entertainment. They are available from or by calling 07810 200 206
