Allstars provide soundtrack to the Brighton Marathon
The Shoreham Allstars had their own challenge at the Brighton Marathon last Sunday, inspiring 10,000 tiring runners to the finish from the Mile 17 staging point.
Bands aged 7 to 18 years, which included such Allstars regulars as Hybrid Holiday, Sugar Crackalama and Gravity’s Invisible Ghost Hands, played from the Allstars’ own converted mobile stage playing a selection of uptempo and energetic songs to boost the runners’ spirits and give them a lift at a crucial stage in the Marathon.
The event was the third year running that the Allstars have played at the Marathon and kicks off a busy summer of gigs for the collective with upcoming appearances at Wild Life Festival, Paddle Round the Pier, Beach Dreams and Worthing Velodrome.
Allstars managing director, David O’Connell, comments:
“The runners in the Brighton Marathon are putting in such huge efforts while raising great sums of money for charity, so it was a privilege to be a part of.
For the Allstars kids, some as young as 8, it’s great to be able to contribute something to a local community event and see the positive effect that their music and performance has on the runners.”
