Clint & Co pay trib­ute to world’s great­est rock songs

Weekend Witness - - Scene Around -

THE Barn­yard Theatre at Gate­way in Umh­langa is stag­ing one per­for­mance of CCR & Friends at 8 pm on Sun­day, Au­gust 11.

The show is be­ing staged by Clint & Co, who are well known for the their qual­ity mu­si­cian­ship and Clint Cunningham’s raspy voice.

Hav­ing per­formed four sold-out shows of their Cree­dence Clear­wa­ter Re­vival trib­ute show at the venue last year, Cunningham de­cided that it was time to in­tro­duce some other rock­ing artists to the mix.

CCR & Friends is a mu­si­cal re­vue that will fea­ture some of the great­est rock songs from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Be­sides the ob­vi­ous Cree­dence Clear­wa­ter Re­vival hits that one can ex­pect, the reper­toire in­cludes some classics by Joe Cocker, U2, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, Queen and The Com­mit­ments.

Show­stop­pers will in­clude Cunningham’s ren­di­tion of An­drea Bo­celli’s Time To Say Good­bye (in Ital­ian), a phe­nom­e­nal ver­sion of Dean Martin’s Vo­lare, and Queen’s Bo­hemian Rhap­sody. Tick­ets are R120 at 031 566 3045. Clint & Co will also be per­form­ing at the Win­ston Churchill Theatre in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg tonight (Au­gust 10). For more in­for­ma­tion and to book phone Mark at 078 457 1369 or Cheryl at 076 662 5309.
