Fundraising at Newbiggin w. Keith Stephen Trio & Caroline

Caroline Stephen (vcl), Keith Stephen (gtr/bjo), Roly Veitch (gtr), Bruce Rollo (bs).
Ashington Rotary Club and Ashington Jazz Club engaged Keith Stephen and his Trio plus Caroline to entertain at a Charity Fund Raising event in aid of Motor Neurone at the White House Club on Friday evening.
The event attracted an audience of 170+ in the function room where the musicians treated the supporters to a lively and exciting evening.
Keith, Roly Veitch and Bruce Rollo performed, as always, an interesting programme while the Newbiggin Nightingale, as Caroline was described, gave an energetic and lively show, much apprectiated by the men and the ladies who joined her in some of the vocals, evidence of her appeal, attraction and personality.
At the final number an encore was demanded which the group willingly provided.
As the evening came to a close it was revealed that after expenses £900 had been achieved for the charity and applauded by all those whose families and friends were affected by the condition.
We thank the White House and staff for cooperation and use of facilities and of course all members of the band who who played their part and must have been exhausted after a successful evening.
