Take a journey with Lloyd De Gier, Dominique Marot and Marion Loudon at Stirling Theatre as they pay tribute to some of the music industry’s greatest legends of Rock, Country and Pop with a celebration of classics from Guns and Roses to Janis Joplin, Crowded House to Pat Benetar and Sheryl Crowe.

Without an electric guitar in sight, the trio have decided to perform some of their favourite classic tunes, breaking them down with just two acoustic guitars and voices, singing and playing songs you had forgotten you knew. Get ready as this dynamic team of singers and musicians deliver superb renditions of classic tunes, taking a fresh look at bands from to Fleetwood Mac to KTTundstasull, 4 Non Blonds to the Goo Goo Dolls and Bob Marley.

This trio was last seen together at Christmas time in the party show Holiday Fever at the Stirling Theatre. The charismatic Lloyd De Gier, who has just finished a long run of the show Legends at the Pumpkin Theatre in Ballito will be showing just what he can do alongside singer guitarist Dominique Marot who recently became a brand new dad. The boys will be joined by vocalist Marion Loudon, most recently seen on the Heritage Theatre stage in Ballies & Babes.
