The word has spread far and wide, so Uptown Jazz Cafe in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy will be bulging at the seams this evening as Sonny plays host to a benefit concert for Dave Ades, who has been diagnosed with level 3 inoperable lung cancer.

Scott Tinkler has said Dave is taking on the challenge and exploring his options of treatment. According to Uptown’s website, Dave is in Germany at present.

The benefit is a bid to raise money towards helping Dave with his treatment. Those performing will include Allan Browne, Simon Barker, Julien Wilson, Scott Tinkler, Stephen Magnusson, Marc Hannaford, Sam Pankhurst and others.

All proceeds will go directly to Dave and donations at door will be gratefully accepted. Please join the gathering if you are free.

Uptown Jazz Cafe is at 177 Brunswick St, Fitzroy. Telephone: (03) 9416 4546
