M4M returns for the final time after 5 years. M4M was started to raise awareness and raise funds for the Meningitis Research Foundation, reason being that a very good friend of mine, Michael lost his son David to the B strain, and from that heartbreaking period he has raised over £300,000.00 for several charities via local 'Strictly' events in town which are amazing fund raisers, he has since become the Scottish Ambassador for the Meningitis Research Foundation, but more importantly fought tirelessly for the introduction of a vaccine for the B strain of the virus which is now available to Children from 2 months old.

Mike really inspired me to make a difference, however small. The gigs grew arms and legs and we have managed to attract the likes of The Wonder Stuff, John Power from Cast, Dante Gizzi from GUN, Nasher from Frankie goes to Hollywood, and not forgetting my good friend Ian Prowse from Pele and Amsterdam fame, without him I wouldn't have been able to bring a few of the names mentioned, we also give local bands a platform to play in front of decent sized crowds and they get great advice from Artists at first hand.

So for the final line up we have:

Ward and Watson
The Lutras
Brian "Nasher" Nash from Frankie goes to Hollywood
Ian Prowse & Amsterdam / Pele

We have raised a total of £8,600.00 for several charities and I would love for us to top the £10,000.00 to go out on an almighty high!

Tickets are priced £12.50 and available from the Midsteeple box office or online via Ticket web:
