(Trevor Donjeany, Mali Sewell, Dawn Selby & Barry Thomson)

Northlands Bowling Club in association with Rhumbelow Theatre will present The Reals - Barry Thomson, Dawn Selby, Mali Sewell and Trevor Donjeany – in Cold Fact – Rodriguez on February 20, 2021.

Who would know that an unknown album from an unknown artist in 1970 (Rodriguez) would become a huge phenomenon in South Africa?

As big as say, Elvis Presley. Rodriguez himself was never aware of his huge success, as well as most other Americans. His music was lost in the US but, by a strange coincidence becomes a cult hit in South Africa and becomes a symbol of rebellion for the underground white, anti-apartheid sub-culture.

The show features all his well-remembered songs such as I Wonder, Establishment Blues and Sugar Man, amongst others.

Cold Fact – Rodriguez has one performance on February 20, at 19h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)

“Whilst we are not changing our 2020 pricing, we would ask that if you are able to please assist us and the performers by donating a higher ticket price,” says Roland Stansell, the owner of the Rhumbelow chain. “All seating will be at separate tables and we will obviously be seating co-habiting couples and/or family members together. With the current Covid levels we will be limiting capacity to 50 people max.”

Tickets R160 (R130 Northlands Bowling Club Members) - no other discounts for this show. Bring food picnic baskets. A full bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises).
