dad charity event

MetalTalk's Gig Of The Week consists of three hours of live music performed by twenty-plus top grade musicians in what will be a night to savour. It takes place at The Lounge in London's Archway on Tuesday 21st March 2017 from 8.00pm until 11.00pm and there's a late bar and DJ's until 2.00am as well.

Appearing on the night will be Black Star Riders drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, Uriah Heep's Russell Gilbrook and Davey Rimmer, Dante Cizzi from Gun, Gill Montgomery of The Amorettes and a supporting line-up that includes members of Toseland, Voodoo Six and Hunter And The Bear.

London's top Ozzy Osbourne tribute act, Ozzy Ozzspawn, will be opening proceedings.

It's all in aid of Drums And Disabilities (D.A.D.), a non-profit organization that pioneered the Healing Art of Drum Therapy. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Administration and the New Jersey Department of Education Commissioner helped celebrate and launch D.A.D. throughout New Jersey and New York City in 2004.

The organistaion was founded by drum Virtuoso Pat Gesualdo, who is also the founder and CEO of the Hall Of Heavy Metal History.

Psychologists, doctors, law enforcement agencies, neuroscientists, special needs therapists, child protection service agencies, teachers and United States Governmental agencies use D.A.D.'s pioneering drum therapy techniques in schools, hospitals, military bases, health facilities and community centres in over fifteen countries.

The 21st March event is presented by TotalRock Radio and sponsored by DW Drums, Sabian, The Carouser and MetalTalk.net. Tickets are available right here.



WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
