Centrestage Stcky Fingers Rolling Stones Tribute

Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers with Duck Chowles
Bookings Computicket / Wendy - 082 661 6921

Centrestage teams up with Barnyard Theatre entrepreneur and producer extraordinaire Duck Chowles to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show which kicked things off for the ex-Eastern Cape musician, namely ‘Sticky Fingers – A tribute to the Rolling Stones’. Chowles himself will front the Centrestage band as the charismatic rocker Mick Jagger.

Aside from the regular Stones classics, the show will also take in gems such as ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘You Cant Always Get What You Want’, ‘Angie’, ‘Ruby Tuesday’, ‘Miss You’, ‘Its Only Rock n Roll (But I Like It)’, ‘Time is On My Side’, ‘Miss You’, ‘Get Off My Cloud’, ‘Sympathy for the Devil’, ‘Brown Sugar’ and ‘Paint it Black’, amongst others.

Two members of the original Sticky Fingers lineup will accompany Duck for the show: Gino Fabbri will reprise his role as Charlie Watts on drums and Joe Van Der Linden will play the rock n roll pirate and guitarist Keith Richards. They are joined by Alan Kozak on second guitar in the guise of Ronnie Wood, Andrew Warneke playing the role of Bill Wyman on bass and Fenlin Pietie on keyboards.

‘I listen to the Stones every day of my life’, says long-time aficionado Chowles.

‘We will concentrate on their pre-1980’s repertoire, when they were still a band, before they became a brand’, he explains.

The reunion rekindles the relationship between Duck, Centrestage owner Gary Hemmings and comedian/drummer Gino Fabbri, which spans two and a half decades.

‘We staged the Rolling Stones show together at the Grahamstown Festival many many years ago. After this, Gary arranged us the most cushy gig we have ever done, still to this day!’ laughed Duck.

‘We performed at the pool between 12h00 and 14h00 at the then Formosa Inn in Plettenberg Bay for two weeks over New Year. We were accommodated right there and we had the rest of the time available to party as hard as our youthful selves desired. That is pretty much as rock n roll as it gets!’ he reminisced.

The last time that Duck performed in this area was last year doing this show to sell-out audiences.

Chowles, who now lives between Johannesburg and Cape Town, enthused
“I am looking forward to returning to my roots with a rocking tribute to the band that I used to dream of - when I was a child - living on a farm - in The Eastern Cape’.

Tickets for ‘Sticky Fingers – A Tribute to the Rolling Stones’ will be available through Computicket or through Wendy on 082-6616921.
