TuneIn to Autism...update....update...update...

Here is the latest news on our Edinburgh fundraiser in aid of Scottish Autism..

Tune into Autism hits the Voodoo Rooms on Thursday 11th October, showcasing three of the best bands in Scottish music to raise fund for music therapy.

The OK Social Club
Fronted by live wire Raff Eragona, The OK Social Club are a fast-paced and fun-fuelled outfit from Edinburgh. Razor-sharp guitar licks and punching vocals are layered over rolling snare to create that old school indie sound that made bands like The Strokes, The Libertines and The Cribs so good. Their energetic live show promises to raise the roof. Raff said: “We are delighted to be part of Tune into Autism as both myself and Chris Finn, our guitarist and vocalist, have family members who are affected by autism so the cause is close to our hearts.”

The Holy Ghosts
This Edinburgh five-piece includes members from The Stagger Rats, The Complete Stone Roses and Down the Tuny Steps, drawing influence from all the greats to create an irresistible rock n roll sound with a dash of country and blues thrown in. Currently in the studio recording with renowned producer Owen Morris (Oasis, The View, The Verve, Ash), the band are taking a break to appear at Tune into Autism. Guitarist John Mackenzie said: “We are really proud to be involved. It’s an amazing feeling to know that we are helping people with autism to get the best support they can in life. The fans of all the bands involved will also be made more aware of Scottish Autism, which will hopefully inspire them to get involved with the charity.”

Randolph's Leap
This hotly-tipped folk-pop outfit are traveling from Glasgow to share their brand of highly amusing musical magic and support the cause. Singer Adam Ross said: "I was pleased to be asked to be involved in the event. I think it is important for music therapy to be promoted and funded. It is good to know that people with autism can benefit from the interaction and creativity associated with making music and I hope that ‘Tune Into Autism’ project will continue to help provide care and assistance to those who need it."

Join us at the Voodoo Rooms for a night of fantastic music in aid of a great cause – only £5 entry, with all proceeds going directly to Scottish Autism to fund music therapy.
