 A special fundraising performance of This Is The Seventies will take place at the Hexagon Dive in Pietermaritzburg on June 15.

And they’re back! Again! For a special fundraising performance to help fund UKZN’s entry to the Student Festival at the National Arts Festival.

Once again this very popular show featuring those groovy 70’s songs will rock the stage. Erin Fourie, Sandra Styles, Daniel Rossouw, and Brandon Bosch revisit their annual tribute to music of the past. It’s the Seventies – the “Me” Decade – a period of great changes in the music scene, when icons were made, horizons were stretched and musicians broke out of their boxes and went where their dreams (and substances) took them!

The list of musicians reads like a veritable who’s who of 20th Century icon with names such as John Lennon, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Carole King, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, James Taylor, Gloria Gaynor and groups like The Rolling Stones, ABBA, Three Dog Night, Four Seasons and Creedence Clearwater Revival all conjuring up images and memories of a seminal period of music. This was the soundtrack of a decade. Woodstock was over, but it opened the floodgates for a diversity of music which stretched the boundaries of Rock, Pop, Country and Folk, and brought us to (dare we say it?) Disco!

This Is The Seventies fundraising performance takes place on June 15 at 19h00 for 19h30 (doors open at 18h45) at the Hexagon Dive on the University of KwaZulu-Natal Pietermaritzburg. This is a picnic show so bring food, but no drinks – there is a cash bar. Tickets R85 or R800 for a table of ten.
