The Undaunted will be performing at Le Petite France on Saturday.

Evan Oosthuizen, Geoff Clark, Robbie Marais and Barry Hosford – better known as The Undaunted – will be performing at Le Petite France on the Karkloof Road, outside Howick, on Saturday, September 24.

The gig is the latest in the Music in the Meadows series, hosted by Paul Spence and Le Petite France, with the support of Village Talk and Love Howick.

The Undaunted plays up-tempo hits for parties, weddings, bars and restaurant­s.

“We aim, through our music, to get people dancing, thereby raising their spirits and having a great time,” says Oosthuizen, who plays guitars and sings.

Clark performs lead guitar and vocals, with Marais on drums and vocals and Barry Hosford on bass and back-up vocals.

This band is sure to raise your spirits and have you dancing to awesome tunes from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

As always, there will be cappuccino­s and sumptuous Le Petite France cheese platters available from the Café, as well as delectable cheesecake bites. Curries, samosas and sides will be available courtesy of Curry Pot from Hilton and pizzas will be on offer thanks to the staff of Legacy Cafe.
