Holger, one of Leipzig’s most empathetic saxophone and keyboarder players, and a good mate of mine is suffering from cancer quite recently. In a spectacular campaign on Facebook, his friends are about to organize a concert
on December 8th
at the club Anker Leipzig
The revenue from the entry fees (8 EUR) will help to pay for the raising costs for his therapy. In the mean time, the concert twists into a kind of Woodstock festival, as the bands (mostly Leipzig) have that vibe, plus special guests.
Here’s a list of the bands participating:
- Mama Basuto’s Blues Ensemble
- Joe F. Winter
- L.E. Boogie Band feat. Dr. Slide
- The Scuttles – Dire-Straits-Tribute-Band
- Richard Istel
- Andreas Doc Lehmann
- Erik & the New Hats feat. Heike May
- Gero Schröder
- Bees ‘n Rocks
- Mockau Slim
- Thomas Knorri Renker
Save the date and get your musical boogie buttocks off of your couch! Help save Holger’s arse as well (literally & not funny), and experience the magic of the still existing East German Rock/Blues scene.
If you can’t afford to come to this event, @Knorri set up a special bank account for donations. Thanks for being openly generous!
