After a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Rockin’ 4 the Homeless is rebooting with an ‘entrée’ event this year, followed by the whole shebang in 2023.
Director and Founder Dan Nebe sparked online speculation of the much-loved event’s return when he started posting cryptic messages on his Facebook page during the past week.
He is thrilled the event is back after three years of cancellations and mis-fires due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We went through the motions twice and cancelled. The entire team worked so hard to get a show to their supporters,” Dan says.
“Saturday, November 5 will be the date and Thirsty Chiefs North Lakes will be the venue. One hundred per cent of ticket sales and money raised on the day will go to Redcliffe-based group, The Breakfast Club. The 100 per cent volunteer team provides 1500 plus meals per month to the homeless and struggling souls.
“The Breakfast Club has never been so busy with homelessness in the Moreton Bay Region. Those guys have been run off their feet with the influx and migration from southern states.
“We have decided to host an entrée event with the main event planned for September 2023. This will mark 20 years of The Breakfast Club and 10 years of R4TH. It should be quite a celebration.”
What’s happening at the entrée event
The Rockin’ 4 the Homeless 2022 event will feature Bob Spencer (formerly from The Angels/Rose Tattoo and Skyhooks). Diana Anaid is also returning for another show.
“Diana is very well respected out here with a huge following. There will be amazing live music with Team Utopia, Tripsitta, Rhino, Levi X and many other acts to be announced.
“We have the best day planned. Raffles and Auctions will be available as well as food vans to feed the massive crowd expected.”
With only 300 tickets available, the event is expected to sell out fast.
