THE Bay City Rockers band is planning on bringing classic rock songs back to life in a live performance on July 30.

Specializing in chart-topping music of the 60’s and 70’s, the members of Bay City Rockers have performed in various line-ups for almost 40 years.

The two founding members, lead vocalist Rod Johnson, on the rhythm guitar, and Colin Botha on bass guitar, formed the original band, Second Generation, in 1972.

The members of Bay City Rockers have performed for many organizations and at many venues in the Eastern Cape, such as the Feather Market Centre, the Mad Hatters Golf Tournament at the Royal Port Alfred Golf Club, The Boardwalk, The Chilli Festival, the Kirkwood Wilds Fees and more.

Although all the band members are self-employed in their respective fields of commerce, they play music as a passion, sideline and hobby.

To give back to the Eastern Cape community, Bay City Rockers endeavours to perform a number of charity shows throughout the year.

Over the past few years performing at the Balizza Club, Victoria Park Sports Club, and other venues, they have been instrumental in raising thousands of rands for selected charities including The Ashleigh Botha Recovery Fund, Animal Welfare, NSRI, EP Children’s Home and Save-A-Pet.

They will be performing at the Music Kitchen on Saturday, July 30, at 7:30pm.

Tickets cost R50 per person and bookings can be made with the Music Kitchen on 041 364 1964.
