In the theme of giving back to the community, Border three-piece cover band Redbelly Black has teamed up with the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners to help raise money for drought affected farmers.
On Saturday, September 22, Redbelly Black will perform their second album session at Albury’s SS&A Club.
The band will be performing live on stage along with other Albury musicians the whole album of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 classic album Rumours followed by a session playing other Fleetwood Mac hits.
“We have called this project Album sessions and this will be our second album with our previous show attracting 500-plus locals,” band member Brad Lamont says.
“Last year we decided to do Pink Floyd Dark Side Of The Moon and we chose Headspace as our charity fundraiser and we raised over $1500 by having a first, second and third prize raffle on the night.
“We contacted Universal Music Australia who kindly donated a first prize box set of Pink Floyd vinyl albums some CDs , DVDs and other merchandise.
Redbelly Black will hold a raffle on the night with $5 tickets to win A Box Set of Fleetwood Mac Rumours plus second and third prizes of Fleetwood Mac LPs,Cds and DVDs thanks to Warner Music Australia .
“All the proceeds will go to Brendan Farrell and his Burrumbuttock Hay Runners,” Lamont says, “Our goal is to raise $2000 to sponsor a truck.
“So we are putting a shout out to any business that would like to come on board and match us “dollar for dollar” from the money that we raise on Saturday night.”
