Charity Founder- Jacky Paice (Wife of Legendary Drummer Ian Paice) Actor and rock lover- Jeremy Irons will act as our Master of Ceremonies for the evening. This year, to kick start the fundraising in a bigger and better way, a unique legendary event is being launched on the 8 July 2011 and will showcase the ultimate ‘Superjam 2011’ – a rock ‘n’ roll fundraising evening at the Royal Albert Hall. Music legends already confirmed include: Deep Purple’s, Ian Paice, Ian Gillian, Don Airey, Roger Glover, Steve Morse alongside Jon Lord, Joe Bonamassa.
This is the first time Deep Purple have performed in the last 2 years and with more legendary names involved including, Danny Bowes, Rick Wakeman, Newton Faulkner this promises to be an evening of compelling entertainment and hypnotic production.
The Sunflowerjam Charity which was founded in Spring 2011, supports initiatives set up to bridge the gap between integrated, functional and conventional medicine with a natural approach to wellness for children, young people, adults and their families with a range of acute and chronic emotional, mental and physical conditions.
Superjam 2011 is to be the charity’s biggest event to date and will help us to increase the already raised funds from previous events. The Superjam’s in the past have been on a much smaller scale – Jeremy Irons has always acted as MC and we have guest performances by world famous artists such as Status Quo, Paul Weller, Robert Plant, Ray Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Suggs and not forgetting the late great Gary Moore(his son will perform with us this year). Jon Lord of Deep Purple is one of the trustees and an active supporter of the charity, says: ‘The Sunflower Jam ‘Superjam’ has become an established event for two reasons because: it’s such a great cause and because it’s such huge fun too!’

This dazzling gala concert, which commemorates the end of the Second World War in Europe, features a spectacular line-up of international stars and Russia’s top musical talent.
The concert will raise money for British Red Cross – the humanitarian organisation which helps people in need all over the world.
A programme of popular classics and war time favourites will transport the audience back to that long-awaited spring of 1945 when peace returned at last, set against an atmospheric backdrop of specially-created pictures and images. Alongside all the nostalgia, there will be plenty of contemporary entertainment to enjoy too, paying tribute to the Allies’ great victory in a fusion of music and culture.
The line-up will include performances by the world-renowned Alexandrov Red Army Choir, folk-diva Nadezhda Babkina, one of the most popular singers across the former USSR Tamara Gverdsiteli, Russia’s very own Frank Sinatra – Iosif Kobzon, rock star Alexander Marshall, the young but already acclaimed Kvatro group, the animator Ksenia Simonova (famous for creating unique installation of sand live on stage); and other very special guests. The programme will also feature performances from some of the UK’s biggest rock acts, Jethro Tull and Rick Wakeman who boast combined record sales of over 100 million, as well as ‘The People’s Tenor’ Russell Watson and actor Jeremy Irons.
This event not only marks the achievements of the Allies and their resistance movements 65 years ago, but also pays tribute to the special relationship between the British Red Cross and Russia – and to the vital role played by the Red Cross at the end of the war in helping and supporting Soviet families who had lost relatives during the fighting.
