Post subject: 2 tone Central Reply with quote

Many of you will have read all about 2tone Central the new museum for 2tone in Coventry that is getting of the ground at present,we need as much funds raising for this as possible to get up and running and to obviously continue,as you may have seen the first fund raising event is in Coventry on May 22nd,so if any of you are part of a scooter club or a member of another ska related forum or group,on myspace or facebook or similar please could you take the time to post up the flyer for thisevent to help spread the word and attract as many people as possible.

Thanks in advance Wink

Hi There
Well reading some of the comments on here, it further endorses why I rarely post anymore, and after I send this Iíll delete this forum from my favourites for good.

Let me just explain a few things here, myself and fellow Trustees (including the Legend that is Paul Willo) have been working on The 2-Tone Central project for months now. No one gets paid for all the work we do and indeed 2-Tone Central will have a Social Enterprise status. Basically a charity and non-profit making company. We will also have our own designated charities (Love Music, Hate Racism, Teenage Cancer Trust and Tiny Timís Childrenís Charities). Our aim is to spread the 2-Tone word, and educate the next generation, doing our little bit to prevent the genre dying out, and put on gigs and sell beer and coffee.

I know Iím considered by some on this forum as an interference (among other names), and you are perfectly welcome to your opinion. However, I do what I do cus I love 2-Tone and Iím not just prepared to just sit on my fat arse telling people how much I care about the genre, I like to get involved and try to make things happen, once again itís all unpaid.

Over the last few months I have eaten, drank and slept this project, and the big work is yet to come, and not wanting to sound like an old soldier my health has suffered recently because of it. Iím not complaining because I just love helping to create something special for 2-Tone fans in the city that put this wonderful music on the map. Ask Willo, heís knows how much work we have been doing to make this happen (On top of that we have been developing a 2-Tone Trail App for the iPhone, but I assume having an iPhone is also elitist). Then you get certain people making their small minded comments from the comfort of their armchair, god forbid they should have to pay out a bit of cash on something they purport to love, it just isnít fair. Put yourself in my shoes, how would you feel?

As for The VIP Klub, well it was just an alternative title to ĎFriends of 2-Tone Centralí, that sounds like a WI meeting. Itís not meant to be elitist, itís for people who want to help make this happen, and in return for their kind donation we give something back. Thatís why they are invited on the 1st October along with Councillors and City to brass and the like, that way we can show off what we have created, making them aware of it, and maybe get help and funding. Itís a low-key event, thatís why the next night is going to be the BIG one open to all. Whatís wrong with this? Why is there always someone ready to have a cheap dig? The bottom line is- If 2-Tone Central doesnít please you, stay away, no one is forcing anyone on here to join in and be part of this exciting project. However I hope the fair-minded among you will continue to support what we are doing and visit ĎThe In Place To Beí. Cus itís going to be Special!

I'm out of here..
Pete Chambers

Some of us appreciate the hard work done by others, even if we can't help as much as we would like, so a donation at the very least is a small price to pay, and I for one consider it an honour to contribute, cow bell on the way soon Pete honest Wink

Just to add my tupenny worth i'd like to say thanks to Pete and everything he (and the team, willo etc) have done to keep promoting not only 2tone but ska music.....

Pete was kind enough to give me a guided tour around the 2tone trail on a wet, miserable cold day last December....I was also at the 2tone central fundraiser where I was able to meet Willo.... Personally I was happy to put my hand in my pocket for a "VIP" membership but i know that i'm not really a VIP!!

I'll be there in October and can't wait to see what promises to be a very Special place!!

Arse kissing over!! Embarassed

Again Robbo you have opened your stupid mouth.

Does us all a favour and save your stupid comments, and stop pretending your something special on this forum.

In my opinion (which if you would like) i would say to your face, Pete Chambers does more in one day than you have ever done to promote the name of 2-Tone.

Pete carry on the good work mate , i for one will always support you and the project as much as i can.

Nipper is a fully paid up member of the VIP Club, do i feel elitist? No i feel i have in a very small way contributed to something i feel very passionate about.

Rant over !!!!
