Three printers have formed a blues band to raise money for charity with a series of gigs around Sydney starting tomorrow night.
The band, Sound Benefit, includes Digitalpress owner Theo Pettaras on bass, his workmate Harley Economou on keyboard, and 30-year UPM Paper veteran Sean Bosco as lead singer.
Pettaras says the band was formed to play music live and raise money for worthy charities, with the Fred Hollows Foundation the first to receive benefit
He expects to raise $5000 which would restore more than 100 sets of eyes in developing countries.
Tomorrow night’s performance is at the Annandale Hotel at 9pm with country blues support act The Faraway Eyes beginning at 7pm.
Pettaras says Sound Benefit will play a selection of eclectic blues tunes and the event will be ‘an evening of music, dance and a bloody good time’.
Tickets are $20 from Moshtix and there will also be a raffle and silent auction on the night to raise more money for the charity.
