Fifty Gigs In A Day

For my fortieth birthday I did Forty Nights fundraising which included a great fundraising gig at Stripes bar, Brentford FC.

So with my fiftieth next year on 8 February I thought how about 50 gigs (music, comedy, drama) taking place worldwide and each one would just mention Nordoff Robbins at their event and plug the wonderful work that Norfdoff Robbins do (they could add their own charity to make it a charity event). The gigs/events would be already booked, not me booking or organising them, although I would plug those involved and their events. Or if the artists are not on tour at that time they will be kindly plugging the wok of Nordoff Robbins via their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. accounts.

Nordoff Robbins do lots of wonderful work helping people of all ages with musical therapy and music has always been a big part of my life.

What is music therapy?

“The overall aim of music therapy is to actively engage individuals in their own growth, development and behavioural change and for them to transfer musical and non-musical skills to other aspects of their life, bringing them from isolation into active participation in the world. We create music through improvisation or composition specifically to meet the needs and capabilities of our clients”.
