Soul Groves with Horace Panter was a fundraiser for Tonic Music that took place at the 100 Club on Wednesday 5th of December. The show was a delight from start to finish. The band played tribute to musical heroes such as George Benson and Ray Charles. I particularly enjoyed their covers of Lee Dorsey's Ya Ya. Dave Keech was a great master of ceremonies and Eddie Piller was the perfect choice for post show D.J.Above: Horace Panter on Bass

One of the patrons for Tonic Music For Mental Health is Horace's band mate, Terry Hall.
“I'm proud to be a patron of Tonic Music for Mental Health. They're a great organisation that run music and art projects that anyone can get involved in.One of the things I did when I became ill, because I couldn't communicate, was to start painting. My therapist had said it was a good way to express yourself, so I started to paint The Jackson 5, except the first one I drew ended up with six of them on it! Anything that gives you a voice is really good. Art and music are a great outlet and have been such an important part of my recovery.”
