The tagline that should be enough to get you hooked goes like this – 10 of South Africa’s biggest music heroes. One stage. 3 Hours of non-stop power hits. Now that makes it sound like Blood Brothers is going be one hell of a night out with South Africa’s first ever super-group making their public debut.
South Africa has a legion of rock legends and local talent who participate in the fight against cancer in support of the Vrede Foundation – and the organisers have picked the top ten to take us all to war. As one band, they’ll unite to conquer one of the biggest struggles to date – Cancer. The army of Blood Brothers will perform the major hits that brought them each to fame, plus taking you on a journey through the songs that influenced their sound.
Each Super Group band member has been cherry picked from our country’s premier crop of musicians and bands. The choices are bold, the talent undeniable, the result – unforgettable. Raw, razor sharp and ready for battle are 5 vicious vocalists: Arno Carstens, Albert Frost, Francois Van Coke, George van der Spuy and Kobus De Kock jnr. Bare-knuckled and armed with the ultimate artillery of guitars and bass, are Hunter Kennedy, Rian Zietsman and Loedi Van Reenen while Jason Hinch and Isaac Klawansky dirty up the drums as they lead their comrades into combat.
This ten-strong Super Group is a fearless and formidable force to be reckoned with as Blood Brothers blows up at the Big Top Arena, Carnival City on the 18th July 2015.
Vrede Foundation is an initiative that aims to educate young people about cancer. By combining the toughest of the tough, this Super Group stands shoulder-to-shoulder in a sheer show of talent and rock glory for an excellent cause.
