Raise The Roof fundraiser at The Charles Hotel, Friday 17th August 2012



















































RAISE THE ROOF



On Saturday, July 28th Stone Circle bassist & keyboard player Craig Skelton’s family experienced the unthinkable – their family house was razed to the ground, destroying almost all their belongings.













Craig Skelton has been a stalwart of the local music scene for years, playing not only with melodic rockers Stone Circle, but also performing many solo & theatre shows and more recently backing local heavy rock legends Jamie Page, Matt Williams & Rick Lovett in Black X.  Both Craig and his wife Deb are also active teaching music and regularly participate in school music camps.

The local music industry looks after its own, and offers of assistance – both financial and to replace material goods – are pouring in.

Friday 17th August will see a dream line-up of Perth’s rock talent come together at The Charles Hotel in North Perth to RAISE THE ROOF – and much needed funds for the Skeltons to rebuild their lives.

RAISE THE ROOF will be headlined by Craig’s band Stone Circle, who have recently returned from a successful month-long tour of South America, and have been invited to return to Cuba in May 2013 to appear in front of thousands at the Romerias de Mayo 2013 festival.

RAISE THE ROOF will also feature performances from Gazman Campbell’s Crown Jewels, Diamond Eye, Lady Zeppelin, The Jac Dalton Band, Babyjane and Chris Gibbs of Graphic Fiction Heroes.

Tickets are $20 plus transaction fee and are available from Melanie DeCull at Taz Entertainment (taz@tazentertainment.com.au ) or on the door on the night.

Donations can also be made directly to this account:
Bank Name: ANZ West Perth
Account Name: Stone Circle
BSB: 016-263
Acc No: 572608361


The night will also see a variety of donated goods raffled off to raise money for the Skeltons, including paintings, stereo systems, PA Packages and more.  Additional donations of goods can be made directly to management@stonecircleband.com.au.

Please help this fundraising effort by including this press release in your news feeds, Facebook, Tweet or Instagram the poster, and tell your friends.  Many thanks from 100% ROCK, Stone Circle and The Skelton Family.
