Soma Crew, Atomic Raygun and Boss Caine are ready to get the week started in style.
Jane Lund, one of the co-ordinators of York Refugee Week, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that these talented people have all given up their time to support this great cause.
“The wonderful singer-songwriter Daniel Lucas will take to the stage in the form of Boss Caine, followed by York’s premier trash rock’n’roll band Atomic Raygun, and to top the night off, we have the hypnotic trance of Soma Crew.
“It’s a going to be a brilliant evening!”
“I’m chuffed to be part of this,” says Daniel Lucas “It will be a sweet night of top tunage with good people for a good cause.”
Atomic Raygun’s Tim Williams agrees “The band is really looking forward to this one. We’re gonna have ball!”
