Argent fundraiser gig

Johnny's Rock n' Roll ShowProg rock giants Argent and Colin Blunstone to headline one-off June charity fundraiser

Argent, renowned for hits like ‘Hold Your Head Up’ and ‘God Gave Rock ‘N Roll to You’, headline Johnny’s Rock ‘N Roll Show – a one-off fund-raiser at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury, Bucks, UK on June 2nd (2013).

In what is likely to be the band’s final performance, ARGENT reunite in their full and original line-up (Rod Argent, Russ Ballard, Bob Henrit, Jim Rodford) together with members of The Zombies including singer COLIN BLUNSTONE (‘She’s Not There, ‘Time of the Season’, ‘I Don’t Believe in Miracles’) in addition to Steve Hogarth and Steve Rothery from MARILLION and THE MOON DOGS, with guest guitarists Danny Prendergast and Jerry Playle opening the show.

The night is geared to raise funds to provide equipment to facilitate rehabilitation for 17-year old Johnny Beer Timms from Aylesbury, left paralysed from the chest down after a tragic trampoline accident.

Johnny’s father, guitarist Derik Timms, fronts blues rockers Moon Dogs on the night.

“We’re not just musicians, we’re friends,” says Rod Argent (pictured above with Colin Blunstone, right). “We’ve seen Johnny grow up and now we want to see him back on his feet”.
