"Do Nets RM3,700 For Ailing Musician" !!                 ROZELLS Country & Western And Oldies Pub !!                 Penang Musicians Charity Jam Session !!                 In Aid Of A Fellow Penang Musician !!                 Sunday 10 July 2005                 4.30 pm to 12.30 am


 A group of 60 musicians gave a heart-warming fund-raising performance
 at a pub in Batu Ferringhi, Penang to help a friend in need of immediate 
 medical attention.
 The charity show, held at ROZELLS Country & Western And Oldies Pub & 
 Restaurant from 4.30 pm on Sunday to 12.30 am on Monday raised RM3,700 
 for freelance singer Samynzan, 57, fondly known as Sam, who is now warded
 at a hospital. The event saw a tremendous sense of camaraderie among the 
 musicians who wanted to send out a message to Sam that his friends care
 for and would be there for him.


 ROZELLS pub owner James A Rozells said the idea was mooted by a few 
 musicians after they came to know that Sam, who was with the 70's group 
 called Freeloaders, had been admitted to the hospital. Proceeds from the
 sale of sandwiches, nasi lemak, mee hoon and drinks went toward the fund.
 He had problems with his bowels and had sought treatment that went 
 wrong  and infected his intestines. He is responding to treatment and is 
 now recuperating. "I have also appealed to my pub patrons to donate
 generously to help him," said Rozells, a musician himself, adding that he
 had set up a donation box at the pub for this purpose.
