Friends and colleagues of late musician to host an extensive fund-raising show to help his family.

Drummer Don Hastings and Eric “Smelly” Fellows – both well-known on the contemporary music scene – are arranging a fund-raising show to help the family of their late friend and colleague, Tony Darrell.

The line-up includes a veritable who’s who of Durban musos - Jo's Garage, Sippies, Blues Experience, Undusted, Bobby & the Dynamites, West End Boys, Will's Blues Band, Steve Fataar, Salty Dog, Rock 'n Roll Madhouse, Rits, Stroh Dogs and True To Adopted. Each act will do 30 minutes with a 15 minute turn-around.

Compères are Danny Fisher, "Spider" Murch and Lamy. Music starts at 14h00 and the show will end after 23h30.

“We've had an overwhelming response from musos who want to play, which explains the huge line-up,” says Smelly Fellows who went on to add that people are still offering their services but he cannot accommodate any more. “The Cranford Hotel in Clarens has confirmed their sponsorship of a prize which is accommodation for two for a weekend, including a meal for two at the Phat Chef restaurant.”

The show will be held at the German/Shamwari Club, 7 Barham Road, Westville, on February 6 and runs from 14h00 to 21h00. Entry to the show is R30pp (children under 12 free). More information on 031 466 1046 or 078 264 9475.
