(Grant Bell, John Didlick & Gary McKenzie)

Remember the good old days of… ”braaivleis, rugby, sunny skies and…”? Well, The Gee Jays - John Didlick, Gary McKenzie and Grant Bell - are back, by popular demand, with their smash hit show Don’t Tune Me – Ek Se which will run at the renovated Rhumbelow Theatre.

The line-up, together with the usual madcap antics of The Gee Jays promises to have audiences rolling in the aisles as well as remembering what they 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 and 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 the Gee Jays have a soft spot for – even if they 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 70s, like Alan Garity, Charisma and even Jeremy Taylor.

It’s an evening of pure South African nostalgia not to be missed. Oh yes and ... Bring your laughing tackle. Ek se’…
