KZN musicians In The Flesh are staging a tribute show Southern Rock Classics celebrating the classic rock of the American south. The show is hosted by Rhumbelow Theatre in association with the Alan Wilson Shellhole Pietermaritzburg and In The Flesh Entertainment.

In The Flesh consists of veteran performers Grant Halliday (drums), Neil Ford (bass guitar) and Ross Tapson (guitar and vocals). For this show, the rotation is joined by a talented and exciting new face, Aaron Saunders (guitar and vocals).

“Aaron is great fun to be around, and the audience loves him,” says Tapson of their newest guest. “We’re very happy to have him on board.”

The show consists of faithful, energetic renditions of much-loved songs by southern greats such as CCR, Grand Funk Railroad, The Black Crowes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Tom Petty, ZZ Top, The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Joe Walsh / The James Gang, Stevie Ray Vaughan – to name a few.

“We’ve included some things that may pleasantly surprise people too,” according to Ford.

The performance takes place on February 28 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)
