SOUTH Tyneside band The Waiters are on the menu at a children’s charity fundraiser.

The group – made up of Dan Johnson, Martin King, Rhys Chambers and Adam Tait – is aiming to help pull in cash donations for Smile For Life, which is dedicated to enhancing and enriching the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children.

The Smile For A Night Variety Show takes place at the Tyne Theatre, in Newcastle, on Saturday, September 13.

It is also set to feature performances from Britain’s Got Talent contestant Nick Celino, who will be singing his debut single Drowned, comedian Lee Ridley, known as The Lost Voice Guy, escapologist and magician Chriss Cross, and father-and-son comedy double act Clive Webb and Danny Adams.

Waiters singer and guitarist Dan, 21, said: “It’s really great to be asked to take part in an event like this, and we’ve never played at that venue before so it’ll be great for us.

“It’ll also be really good to share the stage with Nick from BGT and other big names.

“We’ve got another gig that day for the Friends of East Boldon Park so it’ll be a bit of a rush, but it’ll be worth it.

“It’s great to be asked to do charity gigs, and we’re always really happy to help out in any way we can.”

Tickets for the 7pm gig cost £15 with a £10 concession or £45 for a family of four. To book, go to www.millvolvotynetheatre.co.uk or call the box office on 0844 493 9999.
