Wilsons Wharf: Fri 7 – Sun 23 Nov

Durban’s answer to the quirky international act, The Traveling Wilburys, featuring:
Syd Kitchen, Steve Fataar, Themi Venturas, Tiki Nxumalo and Roly Struckmeyer, will be at the Catalina Theatre in Wilsons Wharf from November 7 – 23. There’s even a guest appearance as the head in the wall by comedian, Glen Bo.

The Durban Willburys is inspired by the watershed group the ‘Travelling Willburys’ which was made up of individual musicians with their own careers and personas, who came together on occasion to create musical mastery. In their different incarnations, the Willburys were: George Harrison; Jeff Lynne; Roy Orbison; Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. The band recorded two albums during the two years they were together.

Catalina Theatre boss, Themi Venturas, has long been inspired to create something similar in Durban where there are a myriad of fabulous musicians who have great individual and independent music careers. He has assembled an interesting group of musicians for the short season: Syd Kitchen, Steve Fataar, Themi Venturas, Tiki Nxumalo and Roly Struckmeyer. They weill be joined by guest musicians on occasion during the run: likely to pop in for a jam will be Barry Thomson; Dan Patlansky; Rowan Stuart and others during the run.

Tickets: R75pp / R40 concessions. Buy One Get One Free: Fri, Sat and Sun in the first week.
