Ross Tapson, Grant Halliday, Neil Ford and Aaron Saunders of In The Flesh, the group that brought you Pink Floyd last year, will perform at Tina’s Hotel in Kloof from September 17 to 19, 2021.

The KZN musicians are staging a tribute show celebrating the classic rock of the American south.

In The Flesh consist 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.

Shows take place on September 17 and 18 at 18h30 and on September 19 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before food and drinks downstairs at Tina's)

We would ask that if you are able to please assist us and the performers by donating a higher ticket price,” says Roland Stansell who runs the Rhumbelow circuit.

Tickets minimum R160 (no discounts for this show). A full bar is available (no food or alcohol may be brought on to the premises).

“Please note that for us to viably re-open The Rhumbelow Theatre at Tina’s Hotel we need to make some changes in regards how we run at Tina’s. We need to assist in generating a regular income for the hotel so that the theatre can continue to operate and for the hotel to also sustain itself,” Stansell adds.
