*Tap dancing, War Child, Barcelona, Cambridge, Local Bands & a Motorhome come together for a special fundraising show in Cambridge on Friday the 3rd December*
On Friday the 3rd of December, Live Music in Cambridge takes an interesting turn with a fundraising show at The Blue Moon arranged by original top act and musical culture clash from Barcelona ‘Kid Hyena’.
The band will be performing a stripped back acoustic version of their self styled 'Electro Alt Hop' show that includes tap dance, body percussion, alt - rock, sing along acoustic songs and the acts infamous infectious energy & they will be supported by a great selection of local acts across a multitude of genres
After in their own words ’too much sofa sitting & lost time’ throughout the pandemic, husband & wife duo Matt Kemp & Maria Moreno of Kid Hyena purchased a motorhome and decided to set out and tour the UK raising money and awareness for the charity War Child.
Founded in 1995, War Child protects, educates and stands up for the rights of children affected by war.
They aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay on to support them—long after the TV cameras have gone home.
A key component of War Child’s work is to campaign on the root causes of conflict, and demand that children are at the centre of all humanitarian responses.
For this UK tour the Barcelona act will donate 25% percent of gig proceeds & monies raised through the bands own independent label ‘Planet Road Records’ to War Child.
For this special night at the Blue Moon 100% of door donations are going to the charity.
Since arriving in the UK organisers 'Kid Hyena' have been featured on amongst others BBC introducing & BBC Essex
and their show is sure to get you singing and stompin' along, warming your heart as we enter the winter months.
