Spinning the decks for charity

Shropshire DJ duo the 90s Revival will be bringing back their weekly lockdown live sets to raise money for charity. The 90s music livestreams will be free to watch, and supporters will be able to make a donation to a different charity each week.

The first livestream on January 16 will be dedicated to their number one fan, Georgia, and will be raising money for the Down’s Syndrome Association. Georgia, 16, has Down’s Syndrome. She and her mother, Nikki, came across the 90s Revival on social media at the start of the pandemic and have never missed a show since.

Nikki said, “Georgia absolutely adores them. They helped her (and me) cope through lockdown. Due to her Down’s Syndrome she struggled with the change of routine, but having The 90s Revival to look forward to every Saturday has really helped.”

Dave Prince and Paul Bennett of The 90s Revival have been hosting online DJ sets since the pandemic began, attracting up to 50,000 views per show.  Dave said, “We wanted to bring the livestreams back for the new lockdown as we know they bring so much joy to our followers, and this time round we thought it would be a great way to raise funds for some brilliant charities close to our supporters’ hearts.

“Right from our first lockdown livestreams in March 2020, Georgia has tuned in, week in week out. She has become a massive part of the 90s Revival with her unfaltering dedication and the messages, photos and videos she sends to us.

“We have so much love for Georgia so the first charity we have chosen to raise money for is The Down’s Syndrome Association. We are appealing to local businesses to get involved with sponsorship and support to help us raise as much money for charity as possible.”

Georgia said, “I love them so much! They make me happy and I get all the shout outs every week.”

To make a donation visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/the90srevival. The 90’s Revival will live stream their shows from their Facebook page, beginning Saturday, January 16 at 6pm.
