Lets keep Romeo Live ALIVE

Watch from 20 30 on Saturday 9th May on our Twitch Channel 

Wow. What can we say?  First and foremost, we just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who saw Gareth’s post on Facebook and who has encouraged us to set up this page.  Words can not describe how overwhelmed we are and how much we appreciate your support, generosity and let’s face it, love!

So, lets get down to the nitty gritty…would you like to join us for an epic virtual club night come house party on Saturday?! And would you like to support the organisers of this event?! If the answer is yes, then thank you and if the answer if no, absolutely no problem, the fact that you took the time to check out this campaign is enough for us! We’ll still see you on Saturday!

Many of you will already know Romeo Done and/or Gareth Harper aka DJ Garfie but for those of you that don’t, here’s a very brief round up of why we’ve created this campaign;

A fixture in the Ipswich DJ community for over 15 years, DJ Garfie works as a resident DJ at Isaacs on the Quay on Ipswich Waterfront, however, like many DJ’s and Musicians, his livelihood has been decimated by the coronavirus lockdown.  In addition to this Garfie and his girlfriend, Corinne (me) organise an old skool club night twice a year.  We were due to have our next event in April but unfortunately had to cancel due to lockdown restrictions.  Not only were we completely heart broken, but so many of you who were due to attend also expressed your total disappointment.

However, we didn’t let this beat us and on April 4th, Romeo Done went ahead as planned, direct to everyone’s living room.  We streamed this completely free of charge as our way of trying to bring people together, spread some positivity and give everyone the opportunity to escape, for just one night, from the black cloud of COVID-19.

The response to this was unbelievable and as a result, we decided we just had to host another one.  On Saturday 9th May, we’ll be streaming live on our Twitch channel and Facebook Live.  You’ll be able to grab a glass of wine and dance the night away with a front row seat in your living room, kitchen or even the garden!

However (here comes the awkward money conversation) these events have cost us money and as a result, we are asking that IF you can and IF you want too, please donate a little something to this campaign. The money will be used to pay for the equipment and the subscriptions needed to host the event.  I mean, we think you’ll agree, we’ve set a pretty modest target! LOL

Music really has proved to be the best medicine during this challenging time connecting people across the world. Help us to continue to bring a much-needed tonic to those that need to lift their spirits and escape the negativity.
