‘Rock n roll and Funk n Soul will be on the bill when some of the North’s finest musicians come together to raise funds for the region’s most vulnerable infants.

The benefit gig, in aid of the Special Care Baby Unit at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, will see bands including Willie & Tabs MacAskill, The Whiskys, Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders, Little Mill of Happiness and The Leonard Jones Potential.

The fundraiser’s being organised by The Whiskys front man Kris Douglas with help from 2010 Management’s Steve Robertson. Kris says “Like many families across the Highlands we’ve experienced our little one spending time in SCBU and we were overwhelmed by the level of care shown not only to him, but to us as parents too, and we have many friends whose babies have received care there.

The SCBU nurses are unsung heroes and we hope our night of music will help raise a lot of money for what is a vital service for so many people”.

The event will be held on the 28th of February at The Spectrum Centre.

Tickets for the gig are £10.00 with all proceeds going to SCBU and available from Union Vinyl and Inverness Tattoo Centre.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
