A benefit concert for singer and musician Brian Mulder will be held at the GrandWest Market Hall on Tuesday, May 27.
Mulder’s distinctive vocals gave the 1970s local band The Peanut Butter Conspiracy several hit songs, of which ‘Amen’ and ‘Understanding’ are the best remembered.
Brian sustained serious injuries in a hit and run motor accident in April 2013 and funds for his ongoing hospitalisation and medical expenses have totally depleted.
Mulder’s colleagues have got together and volunteered their talent for ‘United We Stand – A Benefit Concert for Musician Brian Mulder’. The line-up for the evening will include Barry Hilton, Dennis East, The Bats, PJ Powers, Robin Boltman and The Square Set.
Everybody knows comedian Barry Hilton, the Cousin.
SA music icon Dennis East started his music career as lead vocalist for Stingray. He has also enjoyed a successful solo career and enjoyed hits with ‘Dammit I Love You’ and a Creedence Clearwater Revival medley.
One of the greatest SA bands of all time are The Bats and they have never stopped performing. Their current line-up includes original band member Eddie Eckstein, Paul Ditchfield and Pete Clifford and newcomer Derek Gordon. They revisit the swinging seventies and many of the pop classics too.
PJ Powers comes fresh of a successful run of her life-story show ‘Firefly’ at GrandWest.
Comic magician Robin Boltman’s unique blend of mouth-gaping magic and comedy has ensured his popularity with audiences from all over the world for over 30 years.
The Square Set goes back 47 years ago. Their song ‘Silence is Golden’ is an all-time South African music classic. Original member Derek Marks recently reformed the group.
‘United We Stand’ is set to be a great evening of entertainment and stories, so support this worthy cause.
