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.
