(Grant Halliday, Ross Tapson, Neil Ford & Aaron Saunders) 

KZN musicians In The Flesh, who have been wowing audiences with shows featuring the music of Pink Floyd, The Doors and Southern Classic Rock are at it again - they’re upping the ante with Dead Legends, a tribute to some of the late greats.

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 to be around, quite apart from being a fine musician, and the audience loves him,” says Tapson of their newest guest. “We’re very happy to have him on board - he’s a real all-rounder.”

The show consists of faithful, energetic renditions of songs by great artists of the recent past, including Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Prince, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, and many other beloved names.

“We’ve included some things that may pleasantly surprise people too,” according to Ford. “These are some of the greatest performers in popular music, and we’re passionate about doing justice to these great songs.”

“There’s plenty of fun and laughter too, though,” adds Halliday.

In The Flesh have been garnering acclaim all over Southern Africa for their energy and their daring choice of repertoire, and this show promises to be great family entertainment.

Dead Legends runs at Tina’s Hotel from May 21 to 23, 2021, with Friday and Saturday shows starting at 19h30 and Sunday’s show at 14h00. (Restaurant opens 90 minutes before meals)
