Oasis tribute band Mad Ferrits are using their musical talents to put on a fantastic show and raise money for two local charities. If you love the 90’s Brit Pop/Indie scene then the 25th May at the Irish Centre will be a great night out and all ticket sales are to be split between St Gemma’s Hospice and Martin House.
It all began six years ago when lead guitarist Michael Tinker and lead singer Lee Field were enjoying a pint in their local pub. Children in Need was on the TV and the pair made the decision then to form a band and raise money for good causes. They have since performed at various fundraising events, and the night they organised last year at the same venue raised a whopping £5000 for two charities!
The Irish Centre have been incredibly supportive of the band and are giving them the use of the room for free, as well as helping with ticket and flyer printing. Bishop Sound are also sponsoring the event by providing all equipment for the evening and the sound engineer.
As well as Mad Ferrits providing an authentic Oasis experience, down to the same guitars, amps, pedals and clothing, two other bands are performing. Top Of The Brit Pops will be wowing the crowd with popular tracks by the likes of Pulp, Blur and Ash, and The Analogue Bombs will be mixing it up with all sorts of hits.
Tickets for the 25th May at the Irish Centre are available directly from the band, or from Crash Records in store and online at;
