SEASONED, ever-popular country rocker Brian Finch will be in Durban again soon, performing at Northwood Crusaders Sports Club  from 6pm on Saturday, October 21, at a gig for which there is no charge.

He will share the stage with  long-time collaborators Dan Chiorboli on percussion and Wayne Coughlan on guitar.

A Northlands Old Boy, Finch will also be honoured at The Knights Circle of Valour Awards on October 24, as the recipient of this year’s Music, Arts and Culture Award.  These annual awards profile the success of former Beachwood, Northlands and Northwood pupils, who have achieved iconic status in a particular field of expertise.

Also performing at Crusaders that weekend – on Sunday, October 22 – as part of the weekly Soul Sunday Sessions will be  Durban-born producer and songwriter Esjay Jones.

Esjay Jones… Durban date.

Now based in Los Angeles, she is in South Africa to join multi-platinum selling band Alien Ant Farm on the first three shows of their upcoming tour.

Dubbed the “Charlize Theron of rock”, Esjay Jones cemented herself as one of the country’s top female rock vocalists 10 years ago, fronting the hugely popular Durban band Stealing Love Jones, points out Mandy Carlo of C-Weed Entertainment Promotions, organisers of the Crusaders event..

“Joining her at her free, one-off show at Crusaders are former band members Steve Murray, Andrew Makins, Jason Every and Ant Ellis, as well as a number of surprise guests… and LA-based DJ, Shasta.  There will be background music from noon, with the first act up at 1pm,” adds Carlo.

Crusaders is at 10 Ranleigh Crescent, at the bottom of Swapo Road/Broadway in Durban North. For more information, phone (031) 563 0824.
