Hong Kong Bankers Rock for Japan

Fund Raising Concert for Victims of the Earthquake and Tsunami

Hong Kong, April 1, 2011 – A group of Hong Kong’s senior investment bankers are holding a charity rock concert on April 14 to raise funds for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. All monies will be donated to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.

The “Concert for Japan” will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel at 7.00pm with a line-up that includes 11-year old Japanese rock guitar player, Yuto Miyazawa, who was named the world’s youngest professional guitarist in 2008. Live entertainment on the night will include Japanese dancers and musicians with Yuto headlining the event. Bands include Reorientate, The London Souls, Corey Tam, Go Commando, Helter Skelter and many guests.

“The devastation from the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit Japan on March 11th is unimaginable,” said Steve Bernstein, CEO of Oppenheimer Investments, Asia, one of the leading organisers of the event. “The cost to human life is immense. Rebuilding will take years, but the effects of the tragedy will remain long after.

“I have lived and worked in Japan and still have many friends there. My heart goes out to the people who have lost their loved ones, their homes and their livelihoods. There are many people in Hong Kong who are in a position to help by making a financial contribution.”

Jim Olsson, Director, Prime Services, Barclays Capital and local musician added, “Japan is dealing with a tragedy of enormous proportions. I am delighted to be able to help put together a line-up of great musicians for a charity concert. We are reaching out to the Hong Kong community in the hope that they will join us for a great evening and be prepared to dig deep for such a worthwhile cause.”

The event will include both a live auction and a raffle. One item that is sure to raise the bidding stakes is a private concert with Yuto which might be for either a personal or corporate event.

The many other items to be auctioned include one of Pele’s jerseys – signed and framed – dinner for two at the Kee Club; dinner for two at Alfie’s by Kee in the Prince’s Building; a custom-tailored suit from Raja Fashions; and a signed, framed photograph of Muhammad Ali.
