A Black Lapels Production it will feature Rob Warren on guitar and vocals; Garth Warren on bass and backing vocal; Gareth Gale on drums and percussion, and Luke Wynguard on guitar and vocals and special guests.

Following on from their runaway success tribute shows, Johnny Cash; Bruce Springsteen and most recently their Paul Simon Road To Graceland production, The Black Lapels, one of Durban’s iconic staples in the world of live entertainment, are excited to add to their stable of shows their latest offering.

The Band, The Eagles, Neil Young, Crosby Stills and Nash, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Creedence, Jackson Browne, Van Morrison. The list goes on … and the songs. These artists and their music defined an era. Set the tone, so to speak for a generation of hippies, beatniks, bohemians, artists, poets, protesters, lovers of excess and freedom to live and love by. Ultimately the mainstream found them, too.
