GOOD VIBES FOR TERRI.. A Musical Benefit For Terri Hooley this Sun 28th Dec – tickets £10 on sale NOW!*
Terri Hooley is a legend, a record shop owner, originator of the Good Vibrations record label, the Godfather of Ulster Punk, a poet, a hooleygan and a gem of a human being. He has brought distinction and joy to Northern Ireland over five decades. ‘A Vibe For Terri’ is an event that celebrates the man and looks forward to his continued presence in our musical community.
Terri is currently in hospital in Belfast. He may be absent from the scene for several months. So, a series of musicians have determined to play a special show to honour the man. The entire Limelight complex will be opened for this important event.
Tim Wheeler is from Ash. Nathan Connolly plays with Snow Patrol and little Matador. Bap Kennedy released his very first record on Good Vibes with his band Ten Past Seven. Iain Archer is an Ivor Novello Award winner and former member of Snow Patrol. Tony Wright records as VerseChorusVerse. Duke Special is NI rock royalty. More special names will be announced shortly and in keeping with Terri’s spirit, there will be laughter, chaos and beautiful moments.
The Limelight 2 will feature some of the punk and alternative bands that Terri has encouraged over the decades. Tickets only £10 from Ticketmaster Ireland and Katy’s Bar.
“I have to start to take it easy, so there will be no birthday party this year, no Boxing Day party and a lot less all night raves for a while. Don’t panic – normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Once a hooligan, always a Hooleygan. Keep her lit. One Love.”
