Barry Thomson and The Reals pay tribute to the classic rock songs of Bad Company, including Bad Company, Can’t Get Enough, Feel Like Making Love, Good Lovin’ Gone Bad, Movin’ On, Shooting Star, Run With The Pack and Young Blood.

Bad Company consisted of four seasoned British musicians including two former members of the band Free, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell.

The Reals, with Durban favourites Barry Thomson on guitar and vocals, Dawn Selby as Musical Director on keyboards and vocals, Mali Sewell on drums and vocals and Andy Turrell on bass guitar present an evening of good rocking classics. Included in the line-up for this show is guest guitarist Shaun Dragt.
