Brent’s ‘Final reminder’ vows to help raise money for charities across the borough
Band promises to do gigs for good causes for free
A group of Brent residents have come together to form a 1960’s tribute band that donate all their profits to charity.
With more than 200 years experience between them, ‘Final Reminder’ hope their musical talents will raise much needed funds for worthy causes.
Brian Lee, 62, is one of the founding members of the band which also include Big Dave, 63, Little Dave, 55, Brian, 62, and 60-year-old Mo.
He said: “We had all been involved with other bands which, over the years had disbanded, and so we thought we would get together for one final hurrah - before senility finally set in!”
Initially beginning by playing “all sorts of music”, the decision to concentrate on music from the 60’s was hardly difficult for the band as it was the era all five members grew up in.
And Brian joked it also meant they didn’t have to worry learning the lyrics to new songs.
