Music Stars ´burn down the house at charity auction.

Diners at a well known La Piazza restaurant in Santa Barbara De Nexe got more than they bargained for when a radio charity auction turned into an impromptu night of stars.

As guests were being seated, Former light heavyweight world champion John Conteh was joined by former QPR and Man City and England international soccer legend Stan Bowles. However, after dinner there an even bigger treat in store when soul music legend Alexander O Neal, who had been headlining two concerts at the Estadio Algarve, Faro and Hotel Paraiso De Albufeira delighted diners by belting out two soul classics.

As diners dug deep in their pockets for an Albufiera based childrens charity, former Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillham who had been dining privately with his wife and daughter was encouraged to provide an impromptu performance of one of the greatest rock classics of all time Smoke On The Water. Ian was backed on guitar by resident local musician Howard Scott Parkin who jumped at the opportunity to play with the Deep Purple front man if only for one song.

Retauranteur Angelo Bucciero commented that this was a wonderful night, which he would never forget. `I am absolutely thrilled to have entertained these big stars of music and sport but the real winners were the children of Pirilampus Orphans Home of Albufeira because our generous diners raised so much money for this deserving cause´.

Organisers of the event, Nigel Dobson of D&E promotions and Paul Buick of Kiss FM Radio, Algarve were delighted with the success of both the concerts and dinner auction and revealed that they would be bringing UK singing star, Lisa Stansfield to the Algarve next year.
