The healing power of music will transport audiences when the Rhythms of Life concert takes to the stage at the Quarry Amphitheatre on Saturday March 12 in aid of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF). The Steve Hensby Band, a re-nowned nine-piece outfit, cover a selection of funk, soul, and pop classics, with a sprinkling of originals thrown into the mix. This force of nature features a healthy-sized horn section, and is very danceable. The Rose Parker Band will perform dreamy songs of passion, longing and celebration with a summery vibe from one of the West’s most beloved and original indie-folk maestros.
All proceeds from the Rhythms of Life concert support the brilliant work of the CLCRF, raising vital funds for research into childhood cancers. CLCRF also supports families as they negotiate the challenges of their child living with cancer. Cancer is the leading cause of death from disease in Australian children, with close to 1000 children and adolescents (0-19) diagnosed every year. CLCRF receives no government funding, relying instead on community support – especially through events such as Rhythm of Life.
It’s been a tough couple of years for the CLCRF family, with COVID forcing the cancellation of its last two fundraising concerts.
Gates open at 6pm for a 6.30 start at the Quarry Amphitheatre, City Beach. General admission is $55 per adult. Bring your picnic blankets or fold-up, low-back chairs or buy inflatable chairs and picnic blankets on site to support the foundation. Grab your tickets now from rhythmsoflife.com.au.
