Popular Somerset musical act Cleverly Everly will be performing at the Beambridge Hotel on Saturday 30 January (doors open at 8pm) to raise money for The Christie in Manchester. The Christie is the largest cancer centre in Europe treating more than 40,000 patients a year. Cancer research based there has been officially ranked best in the UK.
Cleverly Everly recreate the music of the famous Everly Brothers as well as celebrating some of the finest sounds of the 60s. The band – brothers Stan and Clinton Rogers together with Stan’s wife Uta and guitarist John McGinn – have played to sell-out audiences across the West Country since they burst on to the local music scene two years ago and have played to packed houses at the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton.
The Christie charity is being promoted by local beauty queen Sarah Kana-ah in her year as Miss Galaxy Somerset. She is helping to organise the event at the Beambridge with Genius PR and Events. Sarah will be representing Somerset at the Miss Galaxy England grand final in February.
When she was crowned as Miss Galaxy Somerset in November 2015 Sarah said, “As part of the competition I’m undertaking charity work. I’ve chosen to raise money for The Christie cancer charity as it’s a cause close to my heart. My dad had cancer a few years ago and is currently in remission. Sadly, I also lost my aunt to cancer. I’m really hoping to raise as much money as possible from the January event.”
BBC News Reporter Clinton Rogers said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting Sarah’s charity. It’s a great cause so we hope a lot of people will come to see us. It’ll be nice to play again in our home town.”
Trish Caller, owner of Genius PR & Events and founder of Taunton Comedy Festival, said she was delighted to help Miss Somerset raise money for the Christie charity.
Tickets for the night (£10 to include a hot buffet supper) are available direct from the Beambridge Hotel (telephone: 01823 672223 ) or online through Eventbrite (link: http://bit.ly/1mJidBq)
