AFTER A five year gap, local rockers Mid-Life Crisis are back at Playhouse 2 to stage a wonderful gig in aid of charities.
‘MLC’, as they are often called, play familiar tunes from the 1950s right up to the present time and so have raised nearly £40,000 for good causes locally and nationally.
Now, on Saturday, November 7 they are taking to the stage once more and have chosen monies from ticket sales to benefit Oldham Mountain Rescue Team and the Playhouse 2 Building Fund.
After starting as a duo in 2001 with guitarists Bernie Allen and Alan Humphries, the band quickly swelled to the five piece outfit with Phil Horrocks on Keyboards, Mike Turner on bass and Howard Lees on drums.
Two of the most successful events were staged at Playhouse 2, where the band sold out the venue in February 2009 and again in March 2010 in support of Dr Kershaw’s and Springhill hospices.
Bernie said: “After a lengthy period when we had no engagements the band was on the verge of calling it a day when all of a sudden the requests for us to play came rolling in.”
Mid-Life Crisis will perform at the Playhouse 2 on Saturday, November 7 at 8pm. Tickets cost £10 and are available online.
