Fugazi Posted April 10, 2021 Share Posted April 10, 2021 For the last time, Marko Hietala, Turmio's Midwives and numerous Kuopio musicians are playing from Henry's Pub in Kuopio https://kaaoszine.fi/kuopion-henrys-pubista-kajahtaa-viimeista-kertaa-marko-hietalan-turmion-katiloiden-ja-lukuisten-kuopiolaismuusikkojen-voimin/ (April 6, 2021) We recently published a news release on our website saying that Henry's Pub, known as the living room and gig venue for the whole nation, started in Kuopio in 1970. The decision to close "Henka" throughout the pandemic was made by restrictions on gatherings that made it difficult for the entire country's restaurant and event sectors to operate. The legendary stage of Henry's Pub in Kuopio will be performed for the last time on Saturday April 24th, when members of Henry's pub house band, which became a local legend, take to the stage with a litany of Kuopio musicians; In addition to the Turmio Midwives and Reckless Love crew, the livestream also features Marko Hietala, who recently ended his Nightwish career, and other local musicians. During the livestream, funds will be raised for the collection of the Association of Events and Domestic Assistance to assist the Finnish cultural field," Henry's Pub says in its release: The saga at Henry's Pub ended after more than 50 years and the time has come to bid an official farewell to the Farewell Party. The event date is Saturday 24 April 2021 at 7pm and the jams are streamed by Cheeseflower TV on their YouTube channel. The high-quality streaming together videokuvat.fi, Bluesounds Oy and H. Kervinen Sounds. The first Henry's Pub Open Stage jams were held in October 2007 and these farewell jams are number 130. Jamei got to play or sing with his own ensemble or with Henka's House Band. This time, Jamie's musicians and singers are Henka's invited guests. The following artists will be seen on the Henka stage: Marko Hietala, MC Raaka Pee, Olli Herman, Sakari Kuosmanen, Jouni Markkanen, Tatu Kemppainen, Tommi "Tuple" Salmela, Kaitsu Kääriäinen, Marianne Juutilainen, Calle and, of course, not forgetting our beloved house band. The main organiser of the event is Kalle "Calle" Pakarinen, who was also the event's shopper. "It is important to say goodbye to the house band and invite guests to join us," says Pakarinen. The future of events and gigs in the absence of a clear exit plan and adequate support for operators in the sector, the future of the event industry looks uncertain for a long time to come. "We want to be involved in highlighting the plight of the event industry and highlight a clear example of the means of assistance," says Jenni Kulin, Marketing Manager at Vararengasravintolat Oy. During the livestream, viewers can make a donation to the Finnish Event Industry Association's and Domestic Assistance's Work Prohibited campaign. The campaign raises donation funds to help people in the event industry and their families. Donation funds will be used to help those in need financially, through goods or food aid, or to take other necessary measures to improve the quality of life of those in difficulty. The event industry is working to organize events as soon as it is safe to do so again. Before that, we invite all Finns – individuals and companies – to provide assistance. Domestic help delivers help to everyone personally through diaconian work. People in need of help can communicate with the deacon work of the parish in their locality. You don't need church membership to get help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
