‘Concert for Cali’ with The Salvation Rocks Band and friends – Saturday 31st August 2019 at 7:30pm. The venue is Crown Jesus Ministries, 7 Calvin Street, Belfast.
‘Concert for Cali’ is a fundraiser for El Abrigo Foundation based in Cali, Colombia. They are involved in distributing Christian literature in Spanish, a music ministry and a children’s foundation which provides food and care to children in the poorest areas of Cali.
The organisers, encouraging all music lovers to come to the event, say,
“This is an evening of classic rock tunes with a difference! The Salvation Rocks Band have re-written them using Christian lyrics. So think of ‘Smoke on the Water’, ‘The Boys are Back in Town’, also hits from Jimi Hendrix, Dire Straits, The Beatles and many more but re-written to tell stories from the Bible and speak words of hope and salvation.
Also at the event, we will be joined by Pastor Hendrik Hoere, who is a founding member of El Abrigo Foundation in Cali, Colombia. Originally from the Netherlands, Hendrik speaks fluent Spanish and plays the guitar wonderfully. On the evening, we will be treated to a special acoustic set in Spanish.”

The organisers say, “All proceeds raised will go towards the advancement of El Abrigo and the great work they are doing in Cali, Colombia. Currently, El Abrigo need to raise funds (£400k) to help El Abrigo build a new Church building, as their current building does not provide enough capacity. This concert is the start of the journey to raising the required funds and we’re looking to get a sellout!”
