Charity Single

We have an exciting announcement to make!

We can’t believe how lucky we are that local band Fisti Kuffs have been working with the International Rapper and Music Producer MC Lars to write a single dedicated to us.

This song has been in the making for over a year and recorded by Ian Crow of Amblin’ Man Recording Studios local recording studio based in Otley, Suffolk before being sent to the USA for MC Lars himself to apply his unique brand of ‘nerdcore’ ingeniousness.

You can download the single for just 79p from iTunes, stream online via Spotify or purchase for just £1 via this link here.

100% of the money received will be given to Krissy & Friends Foundation to help with our work in the community.

We cannot thank enough to all those involved in writing, performing and recording this great single. On behalf of all of us at KFF, cheers!

And to you music lovers out there – we all hope that you enjoy this track. Why not have a jam while supporting our cause? Thank you for supporting us!

Summer Fundraising Day 2016

We are now in our third year of our Summer Fundraising Day, and we want to see you there again!

On the 23rd July, the Krissy And Friends Annual Summer Fundraising Day will return to the Steamboat Tavern in Ipswich.

As you probably already know by now, we provide music therapy for children in Suffolk with life changing illness and injury. And we’ve just launched our referral applications!

But back to the event…

First up we have the FAMILY FUN DAY from 12pm-6pm, where we will have family friendly activities from a bouncy castle, raffles, stalls, cake and bake sale, a bouncy castle, acoustic music and much more!

However, possibly our favourite part of the day is the 2nd annual raingutter regatta and boat building – which you can read about in full here.

Then we’ll follow it up in the evening with LIVE MUSIC from 7pm till late, where we will host some of Suffolk’s best bands for a mere £5 entry.

The line-up of which so far includes:

The brilliant three-piece Denial Twist, a garage rock band from Ippo and Colchester, that claim to be influenced by red wine, The White Stripes, Nirvana and Katy Perry!

The Dreggs, who started out as a laugh between the three of them (or really, an excuse for more Les Dawson moments from Kev, drumstick throwing from Rayna and falling over from Seamus), but will now be aired to the public! As as the three of them claim they “can’t sing for toffee”, they’ve managed to bribe/beg/threaten a number of guest vocalists to join them and among them shall be their shipmates from East Town Pirates for a couple of never played live before, new ETP songs. 

The evening will then end with Smart Alex, who are a veritable supergroup of East Anglian punksters. Their set is full of frenetic old school Adicts and Sustained tunes from way back when.

Check out the posters for the event here:

Any further details are to be confirmed, so follow both Our Facebook Event or Our Facebook Page and The Dreggs Facebook event and check back for updates.

Plus if you want to be sure you don’t miss this entertaining evening of fabulous music with a dash of chaos, please contact us for tickets or head over to Steamboat Tavern or Out Of Time Records to pick some up.

Feel free to spread the word, join the Facebook event, invite your friends and family, and we hope to see you there on the big day!
