After playing to full houses in December, The Hexagon Theatre is bringing One Hit WonderFul back for two performances only on February3 and 4.

You remember these people: Carl Perkins, Jeannie C Riley, Kim Carnes, Eddie Holman, The BodyRockers…? Yeah, neither do we.

Why? Because they had one hit numbers that rocked the world, and then they faded into obscurity, to become members of that exclusive club known as One Hit Wonders. But although we don’t remember them, we certainly remember their songs!

Sandra Styles, Daniel Rossouw, Ryan Calder and Tammy Calder are once again gracing the Dive stage with their amazing voices and wacky humour. They are joined this year by guest artist, Katherine McLennand. Direction is by Peter Mitchell.

In a tradition that started more than 15 years ago, the annual Dive show takes a look at various styles, genres, eras and artists and provides a great relaxed evening of good music and fun. This year’s show includes One Hit Wonders such as Lemon Tree, Lollipop, Mamy Blue, Venus, Don’t Worry Be Happy, I Like the Way You Move, Everlasting Love, Eloise, and many more.

The traditional format remains: picnic evenings where patrons bring their own food, but no drinks, as there is a cash bar. It’s time to kick back, relax and remember some great hits and learn a little about who sang them, dragging them out of obscurity into the spotlight once more.

One Hit WonderFul has performances on February 3 and 4 at 19h00 for 19h30. Doors open at 18h45. Tickets R100. Bookings: The Hexagon Dive is situated on the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus.
