THE BATS LIVE (article first published : 2005-08-8)

Those lucky enough to have seen a show by the popular legendary South African group, The Bats, will know that Eddie Eckstein, Paul Ditchfield, Pete Clifford and Derek Gordon enjoy entertaining their audiences as much as the audience enjoys watching them.

At two performances at the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg on August 10 and 11, these four highly-competent and amusing entertainers will take audiences on a nostalgic and hilarious journey that spans the "40 something" years they've been in the business.

From their early hits of the 60's to their latest recordings, they will have fans singing along and shouting for more. As a member of the audience quipped at one of their recent shows: "these guys are even better than they were 30 years ago".

What makes this show different is that they are not trying to be The Bats in the 60`s; they are in their 60`s being The Bats...!

With their busy solo careers, this "comeback" has brought with it a fresh and "now" sound that just shows what great musicians they are. The show is full of their latest songs as well as taking the mickey out of everything and everyone!

The BATS perform at the Hexagon Theatre on August 10 and 11 at 19h30. Tickets R55 and bookings on 033 260 5537 or e-mail hexagon@ukzn.ac.za
