It's that time again! The annual end of year Hexagon Dive Show with Pietermaritzburg’s favourite bunch of singers and musicians … and this year, it's That Rock n Roll Music! Time to put away the cares and worries, and relive some awesome music.

Once again for their umpteenth show (we're not going to say how many in case you work out how old they are!), the cream of Midlands performers are getting together and doing their favourite Rock n Roll numbers. Ryan Calder, Daniel Rossouw, Erin Fourie, Sandra Styles, Helen Vermaak, Katherine McClelland and Tammy Calder are putting on a bumper show filled with numbers from the good old 50's and 60's days of Rock n Roll, as well as Rock numbers from the 70's and 80's.

They have chosen their favourite artists (like Buddy Holly, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles among others) and their favourite Rock songs and put them together in a foot stomping, hand clapping, singing along format.

From Chuck Berry to Tina Turner, The Everly Brothers to David Bowie, and Fats Domino to Jethro Tull, the famous and the infamous are represented! Who remembers Peter Paul and Mary, The Mamas and the Papas, The Crew Cuts, Huey Lewis and the News, and, of course, a nod to the king, Elvis Presley.

The show is devised and directed by Peter Mitchell, with sound design by Marcus Henning.

That Rock N Roll Music runs at The Hexagon Dive, on the UKZN Pietermaritzburg campus on December 6 and 7 and again on December 12 and 13, 2019, at 19h00 for 19h30.

These are picnic evenings - bring food, but no drinks as there is a cash bar. Tickets R120 pp (tables seat 10) booked on email:
