Suzi and Sarge On Stage

2017.09.07 - Neil Lewis Concert (Pic Suzie)

One of Barry’s best loved combinations are back on stage for one night only as part of our talented tribute to one of the town’s most famous musicians.

Soulful singer Suzi Chunk will team up with the Hindenburgs for a one-off performance at Barry Island Sports and Social Club on Friday September 15th as part of the annual Neil Lewis Fundraiser.

Suzi and the Hindi’s will join no less than six of the finest local acts who will take to the stage throughout the evening. These include Outback, Sugarline, Stonehouse, The Scoundrels and The Davies boys – who are making their debut at the yearly event.

All profits will be split between Velindre Cardiff and PDSA Cardiff. This year’s concert will also be in memory of close family friend Alison Woodham who tragically lost her brave battle with cancer in November last year.

Neil’s son Rhys, who is once again organising the event said: “I say it’ll be the last one every year but after we lost Alison I thought it would be nice to raise some money in her memory so here we are again. It’s going to be a great night for sure, just get there early!”

“Fundraising has been given great boost from local company CF6 Lettings which has been a massive help – thank you!” he added.

Over half the tickets are now sold and the event, which is in its ninth year, has sold out every time so get your tickets fast. It’s extremely unlikely that tickets will be available on the evening itself.

Priced £10 are available from

Boofys – Barry island

The Barry Island Sports and Social Club

The Ship, Barry

The Barry Music Shop

Or by contacting Rhys to arrange collection on 07595497255.

A Neil Lewis Memorial Concert event page has been set up on Facebook.

Ticket holders should be there for the 7pm start as every act is performing free of charge so deserves nothing less than a full audience to play to…fair enough?

Speak soon.
