(Marion Loudon & Dave Monks)

Rhumbelow Theatre Pietermaritzburg at the Allan Wilson Shellhole will present Dave Monks and Marion Loudon in The Swinging Sixties on October 13 at 14h00.

The Swinging Sixties is without doubt a sign to let the good times roll again; get transported back in time to the “Era of Real Music”.

Monks and Loudon entertain in this well-put-together collection of nostalgic and popular Sixties hits. The show features covers of more than 20 different artists which include The Beatles, Sony & Cher, The Carpenters, The Crystals, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, Cliff Richard, Credence Clearwater Revival and The Bee Gees, just to name a few.

Loudon’s voice, vocal range and versatility never ceases to shine and particularly in songs like My Boy Lollipop, These Boots Are Made for Walking and Da Do Ron Ron.

Monks features with some great lead guitar work as he glides through some of The Shadows’ greatest hits, Atlantis and the ever-green Apache which incidentally has been recently voted as No 1 greatest guitar instrumental of all time.

The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic. Tickets R150 (R130 pensioners, students with a valid student card & block bookings of 8 or more. Under 13s – R75). Bring food picnic baskets and a bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). There is limited secure parking.
