THE MUSICIANS

The Cheshire Cats is a fundraising organisation….raising money for sick and underprivileged children….we meet weekly on a Wednesday night at the British Legion,Withens lane,Wallasey in Wirral…..it is supported by local musicians who turn up each week and jam with each other dispensing quality rock and roll and country…this, together with the volunteers who collect the money at the door from the enthusiastic regulars,makes for a great night enjoyed by everyone….all money raised goes direct to the charity fund….everyone giving their time and experience free of charge……rock and roll lives on!!!

  1. why can’t musicians no longer get up and play in a jam session as it used to be when cheshirecats were started.

    1. we have musicians who turn up every week on a regular basis…they have to be considered first …fitting people in when they feel like coming along is not an option….musicians who are prepared to form a band are welcome to have a guest spot…the point of the organisation is to raise money for kids charities which can only be achieved with loyal regular support.
