Sony Max, channel 128 on DStv, is the official media partner for the not-to-be-missed once-off concert Blood Brothers – taking place on Saturday, 18 July at Carnival City. It sees history in the making as 10 South African musical legends get together to form the country’s first ever super group.
In true super group style, each band member has been especially picked from a premiere crop of local rock legends. Together on one stage for one performance, they will perform three hours of the major hits that made them famous as well as songs from international bands that have influenced their sound.
They are Arno Carstens (Springbok Nude Girls), Albert Frost (Blue Broers/Arno Carstens), Francois van Coke (Fokofpolisiekar), George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence/Good Night Wembley) and Kobus de Kock (Black Cat Bones) on vocals with Hunter Kennedy (Fokofpolisiekar/aKING/Die Heuwels Fantasties) and Rian Zietsman (Taxi Violence/Beast) on guitars; Loedi van Reenen (Taxi Violence) on bass and guitars and Jason Hinch (Black Cat Bones) and Isaac Klawinsky (Shadowclub) on drums.
Says Sonja Underwood, territory director for Sony Max: “Sony Max is delighted to be the official media sponsor for this cutting edge concert, as it not only talks to our audience but also reflects the channel aspirations. Not only will Blood Brothers ensure an unforgettable rock legacy but it is a powerful platform to help in the ongoing battle against cancer.”
Added Francois van Coke “ It’s really cool that Sony Max is partnering on this amazing show. I’m a fan of the channel and just got to love it even more.”
