Billy Suter reports that a wake has been arranged for 15h00 on July 19, at Westville’s German Club, for the late Stuart Mey. The versatile and very popular Durban musician passed away on July 9 after long fighting poor health issues. He was noted for his performances with Larry and the Lounge Lizards, producing and appearing in many Dockyard Theatre shows in Durban, and, more recently, as a key member of The Handsome Devils band.

Snacks will be provided and a cash bar will be available at the memorial gathering, at which musicians and singers wanting to pay tribute in song will be able to do so, and are requested to take along their instruments. The Handsome Devils band will also be there to celebrate Stu. If anyone has any fun anecdotes to share, the family would love that. More information is available by phoning 083 665 8263.

“Thanks for the memories big man… and rest in peace,” says Billy
