The iconic Marshall Amplification company have launched a special t-shirt as part of their support for the #SaveOurVenues campaign. The campaign is highlighting the problems of, and raising funds for, our grass roots music venues, most of whom are in dire need of help in these unprecedented times.
All proceeds from the t-shirt will go towards the Music Venue Trust fund. The theme of the t-shirt is taken from the new single by Bad Touch, a cover of Kiki Dee’s 1974 hit ‘I’ve Got The Music In Me’.
Jonathan Ellery, Managing Director of Marshall Amplification, told MetalTalk: “Everything we do at Marshall Amplification and Marshall Records encompasses live music and we admire what the Music Venue Trust are doing with their #saveourvenues campaign.
“We are excited to be partnering with them to raise funds and help grassroots venues to be able to continue to push the success of live music.”
Mark Davyd said: “Music Venue Trust is delighted that a business so renowned for their connection to live music has stepped forward to help raise money for grassroots music venues. It may still be some time before you can visit a venue but you can help #saveourvenues by buying and wearing Marshall’s campaign T-shirt.”
Marshall Amplification, based in Buckinghamshire, have close personal connections not only to their local venues The Craufurd Arms and MK11, but to venues all across the UK that see their amplifiers on stage every week.
Marshall was founded with the ethos to help artists make themselves heard on the very stages that are now at threat of closure.
The t-shirt is available to purchase from here.
