“We call on all music lovers, fans, families and friends to come and support us,” he said.

“The Western Musicians and Entertainers Association Fiji together with The New Nadi Farmers Club are putting together this tribute concerts.”

The concert starts at 6pm and admission is $7.

“The New Nadi Farmer’s Club will be donating 50 cents for every bottle of bitter and gold stubby sold. All monies collected will be given to the families of the two musicians,’ he said.
