SongDivision’s recent ‘Lockdown Rock-Down’ in aid of Meeting Needs was an all-out virtual gala and entertainment bash featuring the very best of SongDivision’s UK musicians. With support from SITE and individual members from the UK events industry, the virtual gala raised more than £3000 for worthwhile causes in the UK and around the world.

We were also joined by some of our beneficiaries, including London Cares and Buses4Homeless, with updates on how the grants from Meeting Needs are helping them adapt to supporting their communities during this crisis.

The exclusive 2-hour benefit was hosted by our SongDivision’s Sam McNeill — GM for UK/Europe and award winning MC/Facilitator having delivered 500+ interactive musical experiences for companies such as Coca-Cola, Microsoft, McDonald’s, Spotify, and Fujitsu. Providing the tunes and orchestrating the rock & roll trivia and interactive songwriting session were Tom Billington (The Killers, Depeche Mode) and Neil Jones (Jason Derulo, CeeLo Green).

The virtual gala was an absolute hit with several hundred attendees, and it raised thousands for Meeting Needs in the process. The talented musicians from SongDivision (with help from the audience) event created a bespoke song for Meeting Needs. You can enjoy the song and a showreel from the event above. Thanks to everyone who made this such a special evening, we hope to rock with you again very soon!
