(The Black Lapels: Rob Warren, Gareth Gale, Luke Wyngaard & Garth Warren)

Rhumbelow Theatre will present Creedance Clearwater Revival Tribute with the Black Lapels and guests who promise to transport audiences back to the late 60,s and early 70s by performing their sell-out and incomparable musical tribute to the Creedence Clearwater Revival Band at the Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo in Durban.

With an astounding 26 million plus record sales cred behind them, CCR established themselves as an iconic Rock Royalty brand alongside other giants at the time like Hendrix and the Stones, producing commercial billboard masters - Bad Moon Rising to obscure socially conscious underground pieces like Suzy Q.

With such iconography, John and Tom Forgery together with Doug Clifford and Stu Cook continued to embed a DNA up until the mid-70’s, with such remarkable recall that, to this day, they remain part of a fabric that will continue to influence cultures decades from now.

The Black Lapels feature Rob Warren on guitar and vocals; Garth Warren on bass and backing vocal; Gareth Gale on drums, and Luke Wyngaard on lead guitar and support vocals.

Shows take place from September 9 to 11 and again from September 23 to 25 at Rhumbelow Theatre with a further performance in Pietermaritzburg on October 9 before the Black Lapels head off to continue their national tour.

Performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 20h00 and on Sundays at 14h00 and 18h30. Pietermaritzburg shows on October 9 take place at 14h00 and 18h30. Venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner. Tickets R140 (R120 pensioners & Block Bookings for 8 or more for the 1st weekend in Durban and the Pietermaritzburg shows.
