Paragon goes back in time

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

DOC Brown might not have been any­where near the Paragon The­atre with his DeLorean, but the revamped venue was trans­ported back in time last week.

The 7 Leg­ends con­cert, per­formed by Barry Franklin and the Brass Mon­keys, took the 280-strong crowd on a jour­ney through rock’n’roll his­tory.

They per­formed clas­sics from the likes of Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Elvis Pres­ley.

The hugely suc­cess­ful con­cert came just a week after the first Girls Night In, which raised $1966 for breast and gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cer support and re­search with a screen­ing of Dirty Danc­ing.

Fri­day night will see the sec­ond ma­jor fundraiser as Mad Max takes to the big screen for the Mo Bro Mo-vie Night, which will raise money for prostate can­cer, tes­tic­u­lar can­cer and men­tal health pro­grams.
