(Grant Bell, Gary McKenzie & John Didlick)

Durban’s longest running comedy cabaret group, the ever-popular “Gee Jays” are presenting their smash hit show entitled Bad Moon Rising for the final time for three shows only on August 29, 30 and 31.

Following a packed weekend, two weeks ago, and due to the huge demand, Bad Moon Rising is set to play another three shows “..and then call it quits for a while..”. The group is also negotiating to stage other shows there in the near future.

Join Gary McKenzie, Grant Bell and John Didlick as they celebrate and pay tribute to the music of Credence Clearwater Revival and all things redneck. The show features all the hits from one of the super-groups of the ‘70’s. From Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Hey Tonight and Heard it Through the Grapevine to Looking Out My Back Door, Jambalaya, Hello Mary Lou, The Midnight Special and, of course, Bad Moon Rising. 

The Deep South roots and swamp pop rockabilly sounds of Credence are brilliantly captured by the talented trio. The show also has the usual, zany looks at life and comic sketches you’ve come to expect from The Gee Jays. It also showcases other classic country songs like Teach Your Children, Oh Lord It’s Hard To Be Humble, Thank God I’m A Country Boy and Take Me Home Country Road.

Bring an open mind and laughing tackle, because the show pokes and prods at all things country and promises an entertaining evening.
