THE mother of all rock ‘n’ roll parties, the Centrestage tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival, Hey Tonight, is heading to Old Grey for a one-night run on Friday, October 4.

The feel-good tribute to the immensely popular sing-along group takes in 40 Creedence hits, which are all guaranteed to get the audience into a rock ‘n’ roll frenzy.

The show is once again fronted by the hyper- energetic Wayne Kallis as John Fogarty, who brings his perfect gravelly voice and dynamic stage energy to bear to replicate the raw ‘garage band’ sound which has become the distinctive CCR trademark.

Various guest vocal performances are also made by the other members of the band, so attendees will see drummer Gino Fabbri alternating on guitar and harmonica, bassist Andre Strydom lending his high Bee Gees voice to a few tunes, and keyboard player Khanya Matomela also having a chance to show off his bubbly personality on lead vocals from time to time.

Guitar virtuoso and stalwart Sandy Robbie plays guitar for the show. Heard It Through the Grapevine, Born on the Bayou, Hey Tonight, and Midnight Special are but a few favourites in the repertoire.

A look at CCR’s country roots will include the likes of Cotton Fields, Looking Out My Back Door, Jambalaya and Lodi.

Fogarty fans will be pleased to see the inclusion of some of his solo hits, such as Old Man Down the Road, Rock n Roll Girls and the Status Quo hit, Rocking All Over the World, which was written by the CCR frontman.

Tickets are available through Computicket or Wendy on 082 661 6921 at R170 per person, R150 for a group of eight or more and R160/R140 for pensioners.
