(John Didlick, Grant Bell & Gary McKenzie)

The Gee Jays - John Didlick, Gary McKenzie and Grant Bell - are back with another nostalgic musical journey in Our Way at the Rhumbelow Theatre in Pietermaritzburg this month and in Durban in September.

“Join us as we take you on a sentimental journey back to the time when music was music. What we’ve found out is that there’s the right way, the wrong way and there’s the railway. But this time we’re doing it “our way”,” they explain.

The talented trio, now enjoying their 32nd year together, take audiences on a trip down memory lane and back again with some of those long-forgotten songs from such great artists like Andy Williams, Nat King Cole , Bill Haley & The Comets, Frank Sinatra , Dean Martin, Engelbert Humperdink, Louis Armstrong, Frank Ifield and more.

The trip back moves through the eras of Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, The Beatles, Buddy Holly, The Commodores, John Lennon, Simon & Garfunkel and Robbie Williams to name but a few. Some of the numbers featured are: Wonderful World, Rock Around The Clock, Drift Away, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, That’ll Be The Day, Sha Boom and, of course, My Way.

All this, interwoven with the notorious Gee Jays own style of comic patter, goes to make up an evening’s entertainment not to be forgotten. So, come along and enjoy The Gee Jays doing it their way.
