(John Didlick, Gary McKenzie & Grant Bell)

Remember the good old days of.. ”Braaivleis, rugby, sunny skies and....”?

The Gee Jays (Gary McKenzie, John Didlick and Grant Bell) are back, by popular demand, with their smash hit show, “Don’t Tune Me – Ek Se”. This will take place at St Cyprian’s Church Hall, Rhumbelow Theatre’s temporary venue.

The line-up, together with the usual madcap antics of The Gee Jays will have you rolling in the isles as well as remembering what you were doing when these discs were being spun, back in the day.

If these songs – all of them hits on Springbok Radio - take you back ... Pretty Belinda, Yellow River, Tie a Yellow Ribbon, Rhinestone Cowboy, Let Your Love Flow and Have You Ever Seen the Rain jog a fond memory for you (or your children), then this show is for you. They are all the tunes we have a soft spot for – even if we never admit it.

Great 70’s artists like Paul McCartney and Wings and, of course, The Village People. The Beatles, The Bee Gees, The Bellamy Brothers and Jim Croche, and the great Neil Diamond. Not to mention some of the many great South African bands who made it big in the 70’s, like Alan Garity, Charisma and even Jeremy Taylor.

It’s an evening of pure South African nostalgia not to be missed.

Shows take place on April 20 and 21 at 20h00 and on April 22 at 14h00. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R150 (R130 pensioners and tables of eight or more).
