The Screaming Beavers to play at Scouts gig
SOUL band The Screaming Beavers will put on a special performance to help raise funds for Sutton Scouts and Guides.
It is hoped the music evening will attract around 200 people to dance the night away.
Fundraiser Louise Haughton said: “It’s a big band to have perform at a local fundraiser and we are all hoping the night will be a huge success.
“People always dance to the Beavers so we are looking forward to a fun night.”
The band, based in Macclesfield, have played for audiences in their thousands at sell-out concerts such as Bollington Festival, but are just as happy playing smaller gigs.
The night promises to feature hit songs from the 60s on the Atlantic, Stax and Motown labels.
The band’s repertoire will also include famous disco tunes from the 1970s.
Louise said: “It is very important that we have fundraising activities like this one so that we can try to keep the cost of our subscriptions down.”
Other activities to drum up the necessary funds have included music nights with smaller local bands and quiz nights.
Members of the Scouts, and Guides as well as the Beavers and Rainbows, also try their hand at performing themselves on a night called’ Gang Time’ which takes place at the Scout hut once a year and will next happen on February 26 and 27.
Performances include a variety of songs and plays.
The Screaming Beavers event will take place on Saturday, March 5, at the Scout and Guide Group Centennial Headquarters on Church Lane and starts at 7.30pm.
There will also be a licensed bar on the night.
Tickets are £10, available by emailing tickets.SuttonScouts@ gmail.com.
