Sherbet To Reform For Harvey James Benefit Show

Sherbet will reform in February for a benefit show for former guitarist Harvey James who is battling lung cancer.

Singer Daryl Braithwaite told me last night that Sherbet will play at the benefit gig in mid-February although an exact date is yet-to-be confirmed.

Harvey has been undergoing cancer treatment in Melbourne. He joined Sherbet in 1975 following the departure of Clive Shakespeare and was catapulted to fame with his first recording with the band, the classic pop hit ‘Howzat’. The song reached Top 5 in the UK.

Sherbet came to a halt in 1984 but has reformed occasionally over the years.

A Facebook site ‘Send Your Love To Harvey James’ was set up recently by his children Gabe, Josh and Alexandra.

Undercover will give you more details when a date and venue is confirmed.
