OctRock V Charity concert
October 24, 2013
Ian Lyall, Idea Group’s Managing Director was delighted to play a part in OctRock V, Legal & General’s sell out charity concert.
The event focused on raising money for several cancer charities and in total over £80,000 was raised both on the evening and in a series of other sponsored challenges leading up to the concert itself.
The venue for this year’s event was KoKo (the former Camden Palace) in London and Ian once again played lead guitar with the Legal & General Investment Management Institutional Business band, Priority
1. Their eclectic set list included covers of songs from a range of rock bands including AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Chuck Berry, the Beastie Boys, Muse and even Duran Duran songs also featured.
In closing the gig, Priority 1 singer and guitarist Mike Craston (who is also LGIM’s Managing Director of Global Institutional Business) thanked the packed venue for their enthusiastic support over each of the five OctRock events reflecting on how they had grown year on year. Mike also hinted that he might now retire from pursuit of his musical career - the reaction from the audience suggests otherwise!
