MUCH loved and missed local musician, Stevie Martin, who sadly passed away last year, will be remembered at a one off gig in The Nerve Centre, Derry-Londonderry, organised by his close friend, Eilish Kelly from Limavady. Eilish, an events graduate, said: "I wanted to celebrate the life of Stevie, who was also known as 'Rainy Boy Sleep' and what better way to do it than with a night of talented musicians getting together to honour his legacy.
“With great help from Marty McGill and Glenn Rosborough of The Nerve Centre, we put together this gig."
Eilish went on to say: "I can't count the amount of times Stevie and I have listened to bands in The Nerve Centre so the venue was so fitting. The band 'And So I Watch You From Afar' in particular was a massive favourite of ours, so it is pretty special that they are on board."
Instrumental rockers, 'And So I Watch You From Afar', are headlining the event. A quote from their Facebook page said: 'Last year we lost one of the most promising artist's this country has ever produced. Stevie Martin was a real talent and we're proud to be able to pay homage to him.'
Stevie's mother, Marina Martin, said: "We wanted to do something in Stevie's memory, based around music and something that would make Stevie proud. It is an important night to remember Stevie, through his love of music and to also allow his friends and fellow musicians to pay respects to his memory."
