"As the Vrede Foundation, we have been putting up music events for the last 9 years. Three of which has been focused on Blood Brothers. It's such a great experience to get the best of the best in South African music together to play their hits, as well as the hits of the bands that influenced them. These guys are tight, talented, and passionate musicians. It’s an honour for us to have them all part of our message and cause. Bring your party shoes, cause this event is going to be a banger." - Henre Pretorius, The Vrede Foundation.

"I am very excited to present this year’s show to all the Blood brothers fans, sponsors and fellow musicians. It is our 3rd event. New venue, 6 new band members, and 5 guest artists! It is going to be a fun ride. There is a new exciting energy between the band members. They have been working extremely hard at rehearsals as they want the fans to say it’s been the best one yet! I urge people to make sure you don’t miss out on this Rock&Roll feast! There will be tickets at the door so there is no excuse!" - Rudi Norval, Blood Brothers.
