One of Centrestage’s most popular shows ever – “Staying Alive – A Tribute to the Bee Gees”, will be revived this March, after having filled venues to capacity in the city some seven years ago. Scheduled to take place at the Boardwalk Vodacom Amphitheatre between 26th and 29th March this year, the show promises to take you back to the 70’s in true disco style.
The Bee Gees were a pop music group that was founded in 1958. The group's line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a rock act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s.
The group sang recognisable three-part tight harmonies; Robin's clear vibrato lead vocals were a hallmark of their earlier hits, while Barry's R&B falsetto became their signature sound during the late 1970s and 1980s. They wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. The Bee Gees' career record sales total more than 220 million ranking them among the best-selling music artists of all time!
The Centrestage band, led by Andre Strydom’s uncanny replication of the trademark Barry Gibb falsetto, will pay tribute to the legendary musical trio by covering well-known Bee Gees hits such as Staying Alive, How deep is your love and Saturday Night Fever.
This year’s Bee Gees run also includes two fundraiser shows on the Wednesday and Thursday leading up to the public shows. This is a golden opportunity for schools or organisations looking to raise funds to purchase blocks of tickets at significantly discounted rates and resell them at a profit.
Centrestage offers many different fund raising models, as well as advice to those looking to utilize entertainment as a means to earn extra income for worthy causes or projects.
The show along with the fundraiser opportunities then heads to East London on the 24-26 April and will take place at The Venue,
Tickets for the performances can be bought through Computicket or through calling Wendy on 082 661 6921.
