ORDER OF THE NIGHT
On the 31st August 2013 'Believe' comes to life in the Strand Arts Centre, Belfast. The event is designed to not only provide an incredible evenings entertainment for all who attend but also to inspire, engage and provoke a feeling which we believe the province has lacked for some time ... the feeling of positivity and the idea that anything is possible if you 'Believe'.

The night opens with live music from the legend that is Joby Fox as he performs tracks from his current album entitled ‘End Of The War’. A veteran of the music industry in Northern Ireland and renowned for the pure passion he applies to every project he is involved with Joby has not long completed the recording of this latest work which is comprised of seven beautifully interwoven tracks and one short film called ‘Lost Commandos’. This was a very personal project written and directed by Joby himself and it is an inspired piece of film making, one that we are extremely privileged to be able to present as our second private screening of the evening and an integral part of ‘Believe’.
“Believe Documentary” Aptly entitled ‘Believe’ this first production was made possible by the combined forces of The Modern Art Gallery, Belfast Bohemian Productions and of-course all of the willing participants. This short film is an incredible insight into the mindset of some of the provinces greatest achievers. It is an intimate conversational piece and a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the human side of certain personalities you may have previously perceived as unshakable. Everyone on earth no matter who you are or what your status have all faced challenges in life and we will all continue to do so but it is our ability to deal with these challenges and the strength within us that keeps us moving forward. This film is evidence that we are all born equal and if you truly ‘Believe’ no matter what challenges life puts in your way anything is possible.
The grand finale is the much anticipated official launch of the solo career of Kaz Hawkins, formerly Mama Kaz, one of Belfast’s most highly acclaimed award winning singer songwriters. Kaz has spent the majority of her musical life as a secret songwriter, recognized worldwide as the Blues powerhouse that is Mama Kaz she has been branded Belfast’s answer to Etta James or Janis Joplin and is also very proud to have been the first choice support act for many artists such as Van Morrison, Nanci Griffith, Chris Farlowe .
