A ROCK and roll night is being held in memory of dad Colin Quaintance who played all over the area in a band called The Cadillacs.

Colin died from a stroke in July last year at the age of 68.

And now his daughter Kathleen Woodman has organised the band night in his honour, in a bid to raise cash for Pompey Strokes and the National Association for Crohn’s and Colitis.

Acts at the event include Vinyl Tap and the Semitones.

There will also be a DJ on set who will play rock and roll music.

Kathleen, 26, of Morgan Road, Milton, said: ‘Dad was really well known in the area and I want his memory to continue.

‘That’s why I chose all the music that he liked, it’s all his favourite golden oldies that will be getting played.

‘He did a lot of work for charity and I know he would be really proud if he knew I was doing this.’

It takes place on Sunday, September 9 at Portsmouth Rifle Club in Goldsmith Avenue, Fratton, from 6pm to 10.30pm.

Tickets cost £5 and all profits will be split between the two charities.
