‘Gone Viral live at Matt & Phreds’

Donate & be part of it!

Hey folks!

I’m sure you are aware, but due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, musicians have lost all their income and work for the forceable future.
Further to musicians losing all their income, so have live music venues. Live music venues face huge running costs, and struggle to stay afloat at the best of times.

So, I’ve come up with the idea of hosting GONE VIRAL! Gone viral is going to be an event celebrating the end of the pandemic once we have the all clear from the government to go forward with public events.

The event is going to be held over a weekend at the much loved bar/pizzeria/jazz club, MATT & PHREDS! M&Ps have been a firm staple of the Manchester live music scene for many years, and i’m sure will thrive for many more years. However, when the doors reopen they will need your support more than ever! 

To start with the event shall be over a whole day, featuring some of the UKs finest Jazz and Blues artists/bands. However, if the event if well supported  it may expand over two days. The more you donate, the more music there shall be! Due to the uncertainty i can’t announce any dates yet, but i shall be keeping an eye on the situation. As soon as we get the green light, i shall get a date sorted. Myself and the team at M&Ps are currently in the planning stages of the event, but more details on line up etc shall be announced as soon as possible. 

This won’t be a ticketed event, instead i thought it would cool for people to donate. I understand that people are going through some very tough times right now, and don’t feel like you have to donate if you can’t afford it. However, if you can, it would be highly appreciated! All the money received will be split between the musicians performing! Remember, the more you donate, the more music there shall be!

Lets make this one hell of a party!

Take it easy, and stay safe.
