PUBLISHED: 11:40 23 March 2011

POPULAR Ely band The Rock Island Rebels are set to celebrate their 20th anniversary on Saturday with a charity concert.

The four-piece rock ‘n’ roll group have been wowing audiences up and down the country since 1991 and are planning to mark two decades in music with a evening of classic 50s rock at the HIAM Sports and Social Club in Prickwillow.

The event is being held to raise money for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent and is taking place from 7pm on Saturday.

The group’s guitarist Mark Steadman, said: “If people don’t know what rock ‘n’ roll is about, come along and experience it.

“Some people come along to dance and sing while some people prefer to just sit and listen, as long as everyone has a good time we have done our job.”

INFO: Tickets costing £10 are available from the club or from Mike on 01638 601085.
