It’s nearly five years since the Recording Studios website was launched and they have an amazing celebration lined up on Saturday the 25th June 2016 at the Good Luck Bar (one of the best live music venues that I’ve ever been to in my life) in Johannnesburg.
They have got a great bunch of bands together for a gig to help them celebrate this milestone: South African Indie gods Shortstraw, amazing Joburg singer songwriter Naming James, David Beretta Owens (Lithium), Joburg Blues Rock Maestros Hellcats and Newcomer Alternative Rockers PitVirus.
You love music and they love music, that’s why Recording Studios want to team up and have a gig with a difference. They are going to use their birthday event to raise money for deaf children who have never experienced the magic of music.
Money raised will be used to fund cochlear implants and to buy hearing aids, giving children the gift of hearing. They’re supporting a great charity called Hi Hopes. It’s a programme run by Wits University dedicated to helping deaf and hard-of-hearing children grow and learn in a world where they cannot hear. More specifically, they want to kick off by raising money for a cochlear implant, which costs R320,000.
Buy your ticket to this event on the Quicket website NOW for only R60! It’s a great bunch of bands and it’s for a good cause! You don’t have an excuse! Entrance at the door will set you back R80.
Take note that if you buy a ticket you stand a chance to win a prize! Every ticket bought online is entered into a draw to win a pair of Black Faff customized Converse / a meal voucher at the luxurious Tintswalo at Waterfall. Join the Facebook event for more information.
This event is sponsored by The Beancounter, Choice Castings and Mouldings, Oticon SA, Converse, Smudge and Medbox.
