Top acts star in Red Cross benefit concert


THREE top acts from the Levante de Almeria came together in Vera at the weekend to support the ongoing work of the Red Cross (Cruz Roja) in Vera.

Top of the bill was Mojacar based rock band Hysteria, playing rock covers from popular bands from the past decades.

Supporting them was big Tom Lee and J&J Music.


Tom said he was really pleased to be singing at the gig: “When our house was completely flooded in September 2012, Cruz Roja in Vera supported us in the first days.

We’d lost everything even our little pup for a couple of days.

“The volunteers at Cruz Roja just offered us whatever we needed to get us back to something like normal life.

Now, I can give something back to them and I hope everyone will be really generous with their donations.” J&J Music, Jim Mackie and Jill Farmiloe have been playing to enthusiastic audiences over the past three years from Almeria to Albox and many places in between.

The concert was a nonticket event.

The organisers wished to keep faith with the founding principles of the Red Cross around the world.

The main principle is that the organisation is based on volunteers, and so each person who comes to the concert will be asked to make a voluntary contribution as an entrance fee.

All of the proceeds will go to the work of the Red Cross in Vera.
