The concert will be raising money for the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth.
It will be, too, in memory of band member Ray Stocker.
Ray, who died at the age of 75 last October, was a musician whose career saw him play with the Terry Lightfoot jazz band and the Alan Dean All Stars.

Opus17 will be playing the music of the 1940s at the concert in Royston Town Hall on Saturday, February 17.
Tickets will cost £8 each - and organisers hope that the audience will dress in 1940s "glad rags".
# Members of the Royston Photographic Society will be taking pictures in the upper hall of people in their 1940s-style dress.
It will be donating half the cost of a photograph to the charity.
# Tickets available by calling 01763 242617.
