I performed new material – Noah in New Brighton and Floods – for a revolving audience of 300 at New Brighton’s flood-damaged cinema The Light. Cracking music from Ei8htband and the boogie woogie bugles boys and girls of Pacific Swing. The event raised money for clean-up group the New Brighteners, the RNLI and organisers – local community arts group Momentary Art Project.
