A whole day will be devoted to charity and remembering paramedic Eddie Webb at The Wheatsheaf pub in Banbury on Saturday.
The musical tribute, called Webbstock, will see a total of eight acts, including Boogiesnakes, Troy and Susan Alexander, entertain visitors from 1pm to midnight.
Organiser Rob Tomkinson, who worked with Mr Webb as a paramedic, said: “This is a tribute to a man who gave his whole working career to serve the local community so the idea was to get local bands to take part – I just thought ‘local talents for a local guy’.
“Most of the bands either worked with Eddie or knew him personally.”
There will be free entry in the afternoon, which will focus on more chilled out acoustic music with four acts. From 5pm, entry is £3 for the four remaining bands.
Alongside all the live music, there will be a raffle and a blind auction of a model ship Mr Webb built; all in support of Katharine House Hospice where Mr Webb passed away in March this year from cancer, aged 51.
Although Mr Tomkinson is organising Webbstock off his own back, he is very grateful to the many people who have helped out.“I’ve had loads of support from Lan at The Wheatsheaf and from the bands as well who are giving up their time to do this for free,” he said.
“Katharine House Hospice is just a fantastic place and the way they look after people is just incredible.
“I like live music and I perform a bit myself, so I just thought ‘this is something I can do’.” He is hoping to make Webbstock an annual event.
Mr Webb, of Farthinghoe, joined the ambulance service in 1987. He was involved in numerous schemes including Medibikes and Safe Bikes and starred in the Channel 5 programme Emergency Bikers.
