EET KREEF HERLEEF! Upcoming Shows In Stellenbosch and Pretoria.

By / Off The Press / Wednesday, 09 March 2022 07:49

19 March at The Daisy Jones Bar, Stellenbosch 21h00.

26 March at Atterbury Theatre, Pretoria: 2 shows at 15h00 & 19h00.

Some of the most talented rockers in Cape Town teamed up in 2019 to give new life to the late 80's satirical album -masterpiece EET KREEF! Johannes Kerkorrel and Die Gereformeerde Blues Band made headlines in those tumultuous years and EET KREEF! became one of the top iconic alternative Afrikaans album releases at the time.

The younger (than the 80s) generation musicians that re-recorded these amazing tunes a few years ago, has also been applauded for the accompanying live shows at the time. KREEF! are Laudo Liebenberg (aKING) - vocals, Frank Freeman - guitar and vocals, Sheldon Yoko - drums, Schalk van der Merwe – bass and Mikhaela Kruger on keyboards.

Frank Freeman says that they are excited to be on stage again to showcase this incredibly popular production: “We came to a point where we thought that the live-shows for EET KREEF HERLEEF! have come to an end, but there has been a steady demand for more shows in both Cape Town and Gauteng. It`s ironic that this music was originally made in a tumultuous time, and we are doing these shows in a new tumultuous era.”

Freeman, who initiated the project (live shows and album), reminds how it all came together: “I rediscovered Johannes Kerkorrel`s music in 2018 and was amazed at just how relevant these tunes still were. I felt compelled to work with it. The EET KREEF HERLEEF! shows that we did so far, made it evident that people are quite emotionally attached to these songs. It made me realize that we are busy with something more than just a re-interpretation of the music, we are also re-delivering this important music from 3 decades ago, just in another time and context.”

There are currently three upcoming shows: One at The Daisy Jones Bar in Stellenbosch and 2 shows at Atterbury Theatre in Pretoria. The Atterbury shows will have a special sentiment to it as it is being held on the evening before Kerkorrel`s birthday. He would have been 62 this year.

Do not miss this brilliant music experience. One show only in Stellenbosch

Tickets are R180 -presales and R200 at the door
