A tribute concert in honour of John Butterfield featuring well-known 70’s and 80’s rock band Dr Feelgood, with whom John struck a close friendship over the years.
John was a massive fan of the band and he actually founded a Fan Club on their behalf and followed them at home and abroad on their concert tours, often in typical ‘JB’ style mucking in with roadie-type jobs like lugging musical equipment around!
When the band heard about John’s illness they readily agreed to attend the special tribute concert which will be held at Guisborough Town’s KGV Stadium Priory Suite on Friday, 20 April (7pm-11pm).
It will now be a memorial tribute event in honour of John and also appearing on the night will be up and coming UK band Here’s Johnny and well-known Teesside group Acoustic Contraband.
Tickets are £15 and can be reserved by telephoning the Guisborough Clubhouse on 01287 636925 (please note it is not manned full-time) or Wendy Smeltzer on 0797 490 2417.
Proceeds will go to two charities agreed on by John and his family – The Brain Tumour Charity and The Junction, Redcar which helps young people to realise their full potential.
