If you are a fan of British rock band Dire Straits, or love the blues-tinged guitar rock that made them famous in the 1980s, you need to head off to the Aasvoël Club on Saturday 27 February 2021.

Well-known local muso, Nic Klopper, supported by a group of outstanding musicians, will “sing the praises” of these rock legends with his new production, The Dire Straits Tribute Show, with favourites like “Sultans of Swing”, “Money for Nothing” and “Walk of Life”, to beautiful classics ballads such as “Telegraph Road”, “Brothers in Arms” and “Tunnel of Love”, to name but a few.

Apart from the musical walk down memory lane, this show will also reunite six of Bloem’s top musos on stage. Legends like Nic Klopper on keys and vocals, Chris Smith on keys, and John Smit on bass and percussion will rock the crowd during the show.

“Drummer chick”, Skye Klopper, needs no introduction as she’s been hot in the news with her brand-new single, MamaSA. Younger musos, Rowan Budding on guitar and the wizz kid Heinrich Oelofse on lead guitar, make up the rest or the outfit who will be working together to bring the audience a solid show and super vibes to the music of Dire Straits. The show will start at 19:00 to accommodate curfew times.

Covid-19 protocol and regulations will be strictly adhered to. Tickets R100 per person. Get your tickets in advance since Covid-19 regulations only allow for a certain number of people.

Tickets from Kiki Corner in Langenhoven Park as well as the Nic Klopper School of Music. Contact Janene at 072 592 9179 for more information or tickets.
