News: Get Ready to ROCK! Reviews Editor hits 50 for charity

50 Gigs In A Day

Get Ready to ROCK! Reviews Editor Jason Ritchie has long been a supporter of various charities and in the past he has put on his running shoes in aid of good causes.

Now, as he approaches the grand old age of 50 on 8 February 2018, Jason is encouraging artists/bands to mention the charity Nordoff Robbins via their social media.  The idea is that 50 artists/bands who have gigs on 8 February will mention the charity’s work.

Already Jason has enlisted the likes of Yes, Marillion and Steve Hackett all of whom will be appearing in ‘Cruise To The Edge’ on 8 February.  Singer songwriter Michael Armstrong will be recording a new version of ‘Everlasting Love’ (a hit back in February 1968) and Facebook live gigs have been announced by Josh Taerk and The Darker My Horizon.

Jason Ritchie founded Classic Rock Newswire  in 2002 and subsequently merged his online musical interests with Get Ready to ROCK! helping to expand the website during the following 15 years and as News and Reviews Editor.

Nordoff Robbins reaches out to help individuals in their own personal development via musical and non-musical skills.
