A rock group with a roster of classic covers will play a charity gig to help with fund-raising in memory of Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club board member Ivan Purdie, who died at the age of 47.
The father-of-three, known as ‘Iron’ Ivan for his strength of character and outlook on life, died from bowel cancer in October.
Now, his wife Kate is preparing to compete in a charity triathlon to raise money for Cancer Research UK and The Muggabees, with Andy Hardie on guitar and vocals, are helping with fund-raising.
Andy regarded Ivan as his best friend. He will be joined by lead singer Darren Parker, lead guitarist Jamie Gladstone, bassist Sean Rochester, drummer Aaron Manning and singer Lauren Parker.
A selection of songs from the band’s setlist, which includes Blur’s Song 2, The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love and Ever Fallen in Love by The Buzzcocks, will be performed at the gig on Saturday, May 14.
Doors open at the Half Moon pub in North Street at 8pm. Tickets cost £5 from the pub.
