Well attended by over 150 people, the traumatic brain injury fundraiser at the UniBar hosted by Tyler Fuller and the NRF on Saturday 8th Oct, was a rocking success! The evening raising $3,413, which will all go towards Traumatic Brain Injury research here in SA.

Kicking off the night were duo acoustic group Paul & Jordan, who warmed up everyone fantastically with all of the hits and covers to get your feet tapping

Next up Wingfield rocked us with some smooth riffs, a 4 piece band dynamic group with some great stage presence playing covers from Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin and some great heavy and moody guitar driven orginals.

Finally from the live bands, The Closing 'closed' up this section, with a Nirvana like sound, the 3 piece smashed out some grunge-esque originals and threw in a couple of covers for good measure from the likes of Radiohead and Coldplay.

To finish off the night DJ T Greg graced us with some pumping tunes and made sure that the evening closed in a typical fashion for a Saturday night, ensuring that everyone was thoroughly 'partied out'.
