Covers band Karnage was formed by a four friends studying at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge in the 1980s.

After graduating, the group moved to various parts of the country, carving careers as a GP, an engineer, an investment banker and a writer, but have got together once a year to perform for charity.

The band will be appearing at Cromer for the first time on Saturday, at a gig organised by keyboard player, local scientist and writer Dr Henry Gee.

"We've raised thousands in the past for meningitis research because our bass guitarist Owen's eldest son was profoundly disabled by this awful disease," Henry said. "We have also paid for a number of badly-needed wells in Sri Lanka, so, as we are playing in Cromer, we thought we would raise money for the RNLI."

Rock the Boat, an evening of classic rock with Karnage is at Buddies Bar, Holt Road, Cromer, on Saturday at 9pm. Admission is free, but the band will be taking a bucket collection in aid of the RNLI.
