Going Beyond The Funk at the next Gables Reunion gig
A great line-up of Peterborough DJs from back in the day, playing a mix of tunes over four rooms, will make the next big Gables Reunion Event something special.
Graham Fairbairn is once again behind the Beyond The Funk fundraising night at The Solstice on September 29. On the decks will be the likes of Mark Goodliff, Eddie Nash, Dill Gloster, Zed Malik and Jim Norton and Pure Niceness Crew. Entry is
£5 on the door.
Inthemeantime though he has the small matter of a sponsored hike up Mount Fuji in Japan to undertake this month.
Over the past four years Graham has put on these events raising thousands of pounds for charity in April 2013 he was inspired after speaking to some friends one evening about people he hadn’t seen or spoken to in years.
The whole plan was to bring friends together, have a good time and create as much money and awareness for any given charity as possible. The first gig Graham put on was the Viva La Rock Reunion, which was held at the Brewery Tap in Westgate, Peterborough, and the money raised, was donated to CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). Since then, he has hosted various events raising thousands of pounds for several charities including Alzheimers Society, Stroke Association, Leukaemia Research, MacMillan Trust, British Heart Foundation, and other organisations. He hosted the first Gables gig in July 2015. Since then the gigs have rapidly grown to become what they’ve become today. He no longer regards the gigs as “reunions” because people of all ages now attend. They have simply become gigs in their own right. The next Gables gig is a fundraiser and awareness creator for Cancer Research - as is Graham’s Mount Fuji hike. The Solstice is sponsoring Graham, and Nicky Welsh, to complete this task with a cheque for £1,000 towards his charity appeal.
