Bands Encouraged To Play On Islands



The band responsible for the top five hit single, ‘Good Enough’ is coming to Scilly for a fundraising gig.

Dodgy’s chart-topper in 1996 led to a Glastonbury performance. They’ve been encouraged to come over by St Martin’s by musician Warren Neil.

Warren has set up a record label, Torn and Frayed, which aims to bring bands to the islands. Last year he told Radio Scilly that he recognised the potential for the islands as an acoustic performance venue.

He says that the aim is to bring acts that will be of interest to islanders and tourists, promoting throughout the UK and making the Isles of Scilly part of the circuit.

Warren doesn’t see any reason why the islands should be seen as difficult to play on and he says there are a lot of extremely talented and smart people here who do it already.

The event will fundraise for the Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Warren will join a group of islanders in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for the charity later this year. He says that linking the shows up with the Air Ambulance is a “no-brainer.”

The gig will be at the Scillonian Club on Friday 31st May and Dodgy will be supported by St Mary’s band Skaramanga. Tickets are on sale from the Club and TIC with all proceeds donated to Cornwall Air Ambulance.
