Cancer sucks. Along with the physical toll it takes on its victim, often comes a heavy financial toll too.
On Saturday April 15, Jeff Martin and Jeff Burrows (The Tea Party), Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus), and Mick Skelton (The Baby Animals), will play a benefit concert to help raise urgently needed medical funds for their beloved brother, and fellow musician, Corey De Luka, who has recently been diagnosed with kidney and lung cancer.
The benefit show, Corey’s Jam will be held at the Coolangatta Hotel. This will be a rare moment for The Tea Party fans to experience Jeff Martin and Jeff Burrows perform together as a duo. The band is currently on an extensive tour in Canada and the US, and will fly to Australia just days before Corey’s Jam ahead of their Symphony shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
Jeff Martin talks about what Corey means to him personally.
“I consider Corey as one of the most kindest, generous people that I’ve met in my career. As a musician, I hold him in the highest esteem as a guitarist and also a talented producer who is a constant presence in my studio.”
There will be a limited number of premium VIP tickets available for fans to attend the Corey’s Jam sound check and meet the artists before the show.
Sarah McLeod will be accompanied by Mick Skelton on drums and they will play some new tracks from Sarah’s upcoming solo release as well as some other sonic gems.
No doubt there will be an all-star jam culminating at the end of the night. Something truly not to be missed by fans of these exceptional artists.
There will be an online Ebay auction held leading up to the event that will be announced shortly. This enables friends from overseas to help with raising money and scoring something rare and special.
