Sons Of The Helots, who will be at Opus Rocks

A headline act from the Northampton music festival, Whiteroom, has announced that it will be joining other bands from Northamptonshire at a charity gig night - Opus Rocks - organised by Northampton-based Opus Energy, on Friday 8th March at the Picturedrome, Northampton.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has been Opus Energy’s chosen charity since 2010, during which time over £40,000 has been raised for the cause. The money is used to help research cures and provide treatment for the life-threatening inherited disease, which affects 75 children and adults in Northamptonshire alone. Opus Energy’s support of the Opus Rocks gig night will see all proceeds being donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and any profits made will be matched by the company.

Whiteroom, well-known for performing throughout Northamptonshire and the surrounding area, will be joined by Sons Of The Helots, The Fallows and Heather Adelle Jones.

Chris, an Opus Energy employee and singer in Sons Of The Helots: “We’re thrilled to be playing, it’s a great way to raise money for a fantastic cause and bring rock ‘n’ roll to Northampton. The audience is in for a treat!”

Ciaran, drummer in The Fallows and an Opus Energy employee: “We’re a great supporter of all charities - the Cystic Fibrosis Trust does great work and this gig was the perfect opportunity to show our support. We’ve been busy recording our second album, so the Opus Rocks gig will serve as an ideal warm up before we go on tour in the summer; we have more than a dozen festival performances lined up as part of a multiple date headline tour across England, Ireland and Europe.”

Annamarie Petsis Jones, Head of Human Resources, Learning and Development, Opus Energy: “A great night is on the cards with this line up of established and up-and-coming Northampton bands, some of whom feature Opus Energy employees. Thanks to the bands and our employees for supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.”
