About The BIG GIG

Seven-piece reggae outfit Kioko are playing a charity gig in Maryhill Community Central Halls, Glasgow on February 3.

Formed in 2008 Kioko are a multicultural group of socially conscience musicians from Birmingham strongly influenced by Jamaican reggae and the ska movement of the 1980s.

‘We are really looking forward to coming back to Glasgow, the crowds are always so appreciative of our brand of reggae. It is also great to know that we’re playing for to help such a great cause,’ said .

The gig is in aid of the Scottish Huntington’s Association the only charity in the country supporting families impacted by the degenerative neurological condition Huntington’s disease (HD)

The SHA help improve the lives of those living with HD through its network of of HD specialists, a world leading youth support team and a financial wellbeing service.

HD is a complex neurological condition with symptoms that typically begin to develop between the ages of 30 and 50. It causes three main groups of symptoms: changes to thinking processes - a type of early onset dementia, loss of muscle control and involuntary movements which lead to loss of speech and swallow along with mental illness. Those impacted by HD may eventually lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink, make decisions or care for themselves and will eventually need 24 hour care. It is also hereditary with each child of those diagnosed at 50% risk developing the disease. There is no cure.

It is estimated there are around 1100 people living with HD in Scotland and between 4-6000 potentially at risk.

Kioko have featured Huey Morgan’s show on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 1Xtra and have performed with artists including Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder, The Specials and Musical Youth.
