Behind every singer there’s a band. If every band member that has ever backed up Colin Cook, or appeared on the same gig, bought a ticket to the Benefit Gig, it would be sold out.

“Adele, (Colin’s wife), I’ve been in the business for over 55 years and I’ve never ever heard a bad word about Col.

That puts him in rare company. You can be very, very proud of your husband” Quote from Laurie Arthur.

If there was ever a time or reason to ‘get behind’ Col and his family, it’s now!

If you’re interested in performing in the Big Jam,
