‘GREAT’ Charity performance

On the 19th of May Mark, Guy, Luke Brighty, John McCusker and Danny Thompson, played a special charity gig before an invited audience at central London’s new Corinthia Hotel. The event was in aid of Mariella Frostrup’s The Gender Rights & Equality Action Trust (GREAT). Songs played were Sailing To Philadelphia, Romeo & Juliet, Get Lucky, Song For Sonny Liston, Marbletown and Local Hero. GREAT aims to foster gender equality and raise awareness and funds to support grass roots gender equality projects in Africa and beyond. Among the highlights of the evening was the auction of an MK Strat which sold for a very impressive £75,000.
