A Scarborough rocker is

staging an unruly fundraising gig to raise cash for food banks in the town.

Kevin Allen, the former bass guitarist with 1970s London punk bands The Stukas and Blast Furnace and The Heatwaves, has recruited friends and former band-mates from around the world to meet up to play a one-off show for charity.

The Unruly Alliance will play at Vivaz, in Scarborough, next Saturday, October 5.

It is the third year in a row that Mr Allen has organised a fundraising gig, with last year’s proceeds going to The Freeman Heart and Lung Transplant Association.

This year’s line-up includes former Dr Feelgood and Wilko Johnson’s Solid Senders piano player Johnny Potter, Stukas guitarist and singer Raggy Lewis, and Heatwaves harmonica player and singer Skid Stewart. Also performing will be local band Another Manhattan.

Mr Allen said: “It’s really exciting to be supported once again by such a great bunch of friends, some of whom are travelling half way around the world, and some who haven’t played together for more than 30 years. We’re all looking forward to doing this gig which will hopefully raise some cash for a very good cause. All proceeds will be donated, under the anti-poverty banner, to the local organisations, especially food banks, who are able to use the cash most effectively.”

Doors open at 9pm and entry is £3.
