GIRLS LUV 2 ROCK (article first published : 2007-05-6)

Featuring Jane Candow, Cheryl Wigmore and Belinda Dolphin on vocals with Paul Candow on guitar, Centrefold is well known for their shows The 60ís Revisited, Gentle On My Mind and Christmas Without Boney-M.

They will show their versatility once again with their new production Girls Luv 2 Rock, a tribute to four decades of power and glam rock. They promise to transport audiences back to the era of leather pants, velvet jackets and big hair with an hour and a half of some of the best Rock Anthems and Rock Ballads of our time.

The latter part of the 60ís saw the emergence of Power Rock with bands like Steppenwolf who went into the charts with their hit Born To Be Wild. Deep Purple blasted on to the stage during the early 70ís with what was to become one of the most famous guitar riffs of all time in Smoke On the Water. Santanaís Black Magic Woman and Totoís Hold the Line also represent this decade.

However, the decade really noted for power rock was the 80ís. Bands like Def Leppard, U2, and Journey were making their mark and letís not forget the female artists: Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks (of Fleetwood Mac fame) and Alannah Myles. Her debut album took the world charts by storm, featuring the single Black Velvet.

Moving into the 90ís, techno, hip hop and house started to rule the dance floors, new rock bands still became stars. Bon Jovi reached sales of over 1 million albums and Girls Luv 2 Rock pays tribute with Have a Nice Day and Bed of Roses. Anastasiaís Iím Outta Love hit the airwaves climbing the charts, proving that rock was alive and well.

Rock guitarist Paul Candow will use an imported Ibanez 7 string Steve Vai patent guitar and looks set to impress with his guitar solos in Final Countdown, Smoke on the Water and Black Magic Woman. Vocalists Jane, Cheryl and Belinda complete the line up of Centrefold.

Girls Luv 2 Rock will have shows on May 11 and 12 at 20h00 and on May 13 at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R60. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
