A special evening of music is being held to raise money for charity in memory of a Harborough musician who died earlier this year.

Andy Nourish died in February at the age of 52 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was a familiar face on the Harborough music scene, playing bass guitar with The Others as well as featuring in the line-ups of a number of other bands.

A gig is now being held at Harborough Rugby Club from 7.30pm on Saturday, July 25, in Andy’s memory.

Money raised on the night will be donated to Pancreatic Cancer UK, a charity dedicated to researching early detection and treatment of the disease.

Maureen O’Malley, one of the organisers, said “We have five bands playing at the event including, High Society, a band that Andy played in with his brother Stuart Nourish, Pete Godfrey and Phil Inman – who are reforming for one night only.

“Other bands include Topos Locos who recently supported The Damned at The Roadmender in Northampton, The Dogs, a highly-rated local indie band and, of course, headlining are The Others, who Andy played bass with before he passed away.

“The Others have a big following having played in the Harborough and Northampton area for more than five years. They play a variety of indie rock covers and more.”

The Others line-up consists of Ricky Bateman (vocals), Pete Godfrey (guitar/vocals), Matt Hickman (drums) and new member Andy Potter on Bass. Maureen added: “All the bands are providing their time for free and the rugby club have donated their venue.

“Every penny raised on the evening will go to Pancreatic Cancer UK.”

Tickets cost £5 and available from MH Music, in St Mary’s Road, or by emailing tcom57@ntlworld.com.
