CALLING all rockers. Hey Tonight – A Tribute to Creedence Clearwater Revival returns to The Music Kitchen in Port Elizabeth tonight and tomorrow.
The feel-good salute takes in 40 Creedence hits, which are guaranteed to get the audience in the mood.
The show is once again fronted by the hyper-energetic Wayne Kallis as John Fogarty. Kallis brings his gravelly voice and dynamic stage energy to bear to replicate the raw "garage band" sound which has become the distinctive CCR trademark.
Sherid van Rooyen recreates the well-known CCR guitar licks to perfection, with Gino Fabbri on drums, Andre Strydom on bass and Khanya Matomela on keyboards.
Various other fronting guest vocalist performances are also made by the other members of the band, so we will see Fabbri alternating on guitar and harmonica, Strydom lending his high Bee Gees voice to a few tunes, and Matomela also showing off his bubbly personality on up-front vocals from time to time.
With so many beloved hits to showcase, a spirited band to perform them, a sense of nostalgia in the air and an audience who cannot wait to party, Hey Tonight just cannot go wrong.
Travelling Band, Down on the Corner, Suzi Q, Heard It Through the Grapevine, Born on the Bayou, Up Around the Bend, Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising and Have You Ever Seen the Rain 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, while their protest songs such as Fortunate Son, Run Through the Jungle and Who'll Stop the Rain are also included.
John Fogarty fans will be pleased to see the inclusion of some of his solo hits.
Tickets for the performances, which start at 7.30pm, can be bought at R120 through The Music Kitchen on (041)364-1964.
