Rockin 4 The Homeless

Redcliffe Guide | Mar 27, 2018
Rockin 4 The Homeless
Rockin 4 the Homeless is rock and roll at its best with 25 bands on three stages and 11 hours of great Australian music, all for a good cause.

The Hoodoo Gurus are the headline act at Rockin 4 the Homeless at Dolphins Leagues Club on Saturday, April 28 in support of Redcliffe Breakfast Club.

Event director Dan Nebe said the concert is in its fifth year with all funds raised going to the Breakfast Club.

“We run this event each year to help the Breakfast Club which is not funded and run entirely by volunteers,” Dan said.

“ The Breakfast Club provides 1,500 free meals to the homeless and people in need each month. Their services include breakfasts three days a week, dinner two evenings a week, an outreach van that gives out blankets, food and care packs and the Breakfast Club Hub that is open two days a week.

“People can go to the hub to charge their phone, do washing, have a shower and the volunteers can connect them with support services.

“They can have a coffee and a feed and feel like they’ve got somewhere to go. The most important thing is the chance to mix with other people in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

“Some of the people are homeless, others are on low or fixed incomes and struggling to make their money stretch. The ages of people attending range from babies to people in their 80s.

“All the money raised goes to the Breakfast Club, 100% of every dollar. There are no agent fees or commissions or costs and the event is always fully funded prior to the day.

“Last year we raised almost $67,000, more than the first three years combined.

“Rockin 4 the Homeless is growing, it’s on a roll. It’s a freight train that we can’t stop and why would we,” Dan said.

Local bands include including Diana Anaid, Team Utopia, Ben Candom, Sabrina Lawrie and The Hunting Party, Amanda Emblem Experiment and The Gastons.

Doors open at 1pm and the music goes until 1am followed by an after-party downstairs until 3am.

Rockin 4 The Homeless is on at Dolphins Leagues Club on Saturday, April 28. Doors open at 1pm.
