We were delighted to support the fundraising gig by Guernsey’s own rock ‘n’ roll band Matt Bonneville and the Cage Shakers held at Cobo Community Centre. The band includes our very own Scott on guitar and backing vocals – so now we know what he gets up to when he is not behind a screen.
The sell out audience of 120 people twisted, jived and bunny hopped the night away to the band’s great interpretation of 50s classics. From Elvis to Holly, Berry to Haley the crowd enjoyed a fabulous night, filling the dance floor and reliving their youth (in some cases) or just appreciating some fantastic music.
And to add extra 50s flavour, food included hot dogs and shakes and if a selfie with Elvis was ever on a bucket list, a life-size cut out of the man himself was provided for that very purpose.
An amazing £1,800 was raised for the centre and we are thrilled that we were able to help finance the lighting and stage equipment, meaning that the profits were able to go straight back into the pot.
