Local musicians will be giving up their time to help a Portsmouth-based drummer raise £15,000 for a potentially life-changing operation.

On Sunday more than a dozen acts will be appearing at Rock 4 Russ at The Heroes in Waterlooville.

The event is in aid of Russ Mahoney, formerly of Yoyo, The Chaps, Jellybeans, County Line, Fliptop And Brian Connolly’s Sweet, to raise cash for a stem cell operation. Since suffering a stroke four years ago, Russ’ left arm has been paralysed.

Acts appearing include Peach & The New Beats, Reach Out Till Dawn, Lucky 13, Hazzard County, The Berndashians, Ready To Rock School, The Men From Montgomery, The Superheroes, T-S & The Young Blades, Dr Rock, PJ (Fliptop), Ritchie (Mafia) and Toby & Robbie.

It all kicks off at 1.30pm and it’s free entry but donations are welcome.
