Blag Promotions, in conjunction with the Farnborough Groove proudly present a special event in aid of Love Hope Strength Foundation at the Farnborough Town Football Club.

Phobia From Blackwater, this will be punk-poppers Phobia’s first gig in nearly 25 years. Having toured with Manic Street Preachers, and Mega City 4, they also released several acclaimed singles and had support from the likes of John Peel and Steve Lamacq.

Caged Rock-pop-metal from Aldershot and this is their first gig in over 18 years. Caged later evolved into Atomika and received favourable reviews in Kerrang, Melody Maker and NME.

Modern Art Thieves A new Aldershot band formed from the ashes of Farnborough Groove acts The Perfect Circles, Blue Velvet, Breaker and Toys In The Attic. This is their debut gig, playing covers of your favourite punk/mod anthems but with a twist.

Blindmans Rainbow Thoughtful moving indie-pop from Reading, they toured with Neds
Atomic Dustbin in the early 1990s.

The 4 Marys The 4 Marys were originally around during the 1990ís. Since then the band had lost a little hair and some long-sight vision but none of the power and passion in their rock n roll.

I-Jay (acoustic) Former front man of EMI recording artists Spliff Riff in the 1980s, I-Jay is local legend and acoustic artist based in Aldershot and plays thought provoking reggae tunes.

Wob (acoustic) Originally from Reading, Wob is humorous and passionate and combines, clever acoustic style and a lively stage presence was definitely worth seeing.

Plus DJ Billy Liberator, who will be spinning classic indie/rock/pop gems.
With compËre Andy Clark.

Doors 4.30pm, first act on 5pm sharp!

Love Hope Strength is now firmly established as the worldís leading rock and roll cancer foundation. Love Hope Strength Foundation was registered as a charity in 2007, and co-founded by Mike Peters, two-times cancer survivor and internationally acclaimed singer of Welsh rock band The Alarm. Love Hope Strength Foundation as a charity promotes innovative, music related, outreach and awareness programmes for leukaemia and cancer sufferers, survivors and their families. The mission is to save lives, right now, with the advances that have already been made in cancer care. We do not fund cancer research, rather we use our funds to purchase medical
equipment and supplies, raise awareness through special events, documentaries and media, build cancer centers and raises awareness and recruits potential donors to the organ and bone marrow registers.
