(The Amy Winehouse project)

The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present the Amy Winehouse Tribute on July 31 2018 paying tribute to a true musical prodigy, quirky, fun, raw and flawless singer/songwriter/artist, Amy Winehouse.

The five-time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter began in poetry and later became one of the greatest musician of her generation. At age 19, she recorded her debut Frank. Being a rebellious someone, she sparked many enthusiasts in her journey which ultimately led to her end. She still remains in the great hall of fame.

Amy Winehouse and friends is a show that will display how she had influences over different artists such as Adele, Colbly Calait, Meghan Trainor and many more. 

The band comprises vocalist Kerry Cherry, with pianist David Langley, bassist Logan Byrne, and drummer Devon Hore with the Heather Groove brass section, George Mari on trumpet and Avikar Maney on alto sax. They will perform some favourite feel-good songs and give audiences a moment of memory of a fallen musical genius doll.

The Amy Winehouse Tribute takes place on July 31 at 18h00 (doors open at 17h30) at The Centre for Jazz and Popular music (CJPM), Level 2, Shepstone Building at UKZN Howard College Campus.

General admission R80 (R50 pensioners, R25 students) at the door. Contact Thuli on 031 260 3385 or email for more details.
