(Marion Loudon & Dave Monks)

The Swinging Sixties will no doubt let the good times roll again. Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof will present Dave Monks and Marion Loudon transport you back in time to the “Era of Real Music”.

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, to name a few.

Loudon’s 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 impressive 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 couple have performed together all over South Africa including Sun City, Swaziland, Johannesburg and many corporate events and festivals. They have also been the voices behind many radio adverts and Loudon has been the harmonising vocalist on all of Monks solo CDs.

CDs on sale at the show: 60’s: Blast from the Past Volume 1 & Volume 2.
