Just Push Play

Date 2nd Aug 2024
Date Hunter Club Bar & Venue, Saint Andrew's Street South, Bury Saint Edmunds, UK

Lee started Just Push Play in memory of his father Ian after someone joking said he should ‘Do Live Aid’ as a way to mark his fathers life. Lee’s father Ian Graham died after a very shot intense battle with cancer from diagnosis to him sadly passing away. In 2015 Lee decided to put together the first ‘Just Push Play’ concert to mark the 5th anniversary of his father Ian’s passing and to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care who cared for Ian Graham during his short but intense battle with cancer. With Both Lee and Ian sharing a huge passion for live music, attending several gigs together, a charity gig in his Dad’s memory made perfect sense! The first year saw a selection of local bands play a social club and raise over £1300 for the hospice. This success spurred Lee to make the gig an annual event in memory of his father. The event had grown year on year and 2018 move from the social club it had been held the first 3 years to The Apex, Bury St Edmunds. Where it has been held ever since. To date the event has raised over £15,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
