Wrestlerish at the Durban Botanic Gardens

2010-10-07 00:00

THE band Wrestlerish makes its debut at the Old Mutual Music at the Lake Concert in the Durban Botanic Gardens on Sunday, October 10.

Wrestlerish is the brain child of songwriters Werner Olckers and Jacques du Plessis — Olckers plays guitar and du Plessis plays keyboards, alongside David Grevier on bass and Gavin Flaks on drums. The foursome has performed at various festivals around the country and shared the stage with Johnny Clegg, Mango Groove and Valiant Swart.

Since the release of their album The Rude Mechanical and a country-wide promotional tour, the music scene has been buzzing about the Wrestlerish sound. Nathan Zeno writing for Levi’s Music Mag says: “Wrestlerish is unlike anything else going at the moment. They are going to be huge!”

So, Durban fans, don’t miss your chance to hear them perform at 3.30 pm.

John Manuel will open the concert at 2.30 pm. Manuel is a singer-songwriter who has honed his skills as a finger-picking guitarist over the last 10 years. He builds his songs from the complex guitar riffs which are his trademark sound.

Manuel will be showcasing songs from his first solo album, Lost and Found and performing with his band, featuring Stef Myberg, Lenski Alfred and Simon Beech.

Early bird tickets are R80 with the price going up to R100 on concert day. Children six to 12 years pay R20.

Book online through www.ticketbreak.co.za Tickets are also available at the Info Centre in the Durban Botanic Gardens at R80 until October 9. Gates to the concert area open at 12.30 pm. The Kids Zone is open from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm.
