(The Black Lapels)

Let the Black Lapels (Rob Warren, Garth Warren, Gareth Gale and Luke Wyngaard) transport you back to the late 60’s and early 70’s by performing their musical tribute to the Creedence Clearwater Revival Band.

The show runs from March 16 to 18 at Rhumbelow Theatre Durban’s temporary location, St Cyprians Church Hall.

Back by popular demand, the CCR show allows the Black Lapels to crank up the amps and head full-tilt into this not to be missed performance! The set list includes all your favourite hits including, Fortunate Son, Looking out my Back Door, Down on the Corner, Up around the Bend, Born on the Bayou, Green River and many more. Highlights of the show include intimate renditions of CCR classics like Lodi performed solo by Lapels front man Rob Warren. The Lapels rhythm section featuring Garth Warren (bass) and Gareth Gale (drums) keep the set moving along at an energetic pace and Rusty Red (lead guitar) reproduces CCR guitar lines with minimum effort!

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-70s, with such remarkable recall that, to this day, they remain part of a fabric that will continue to influence cultures decades from now. Bring your sons and daughters if you can.

All of this adds up to The Black Lapels finest work to date!
