The soccer was forgotten for an evening as Potters Place became the place to be in Jeffreys Bay last night. Clint & Co, a South African band of note rocked the jam packed audience with a mixture of original music and perennial favourites that had young and old alike out of their chairs and dancing by the end of the evening.
Clint’s raspy voice accompanied by some seriously good guitar playing by Peter Hammer on the lead guitar set the scene for a great night’s entertainment.
Creedence Clearwater Revival, U2, Smokie and Deep Purple were just some of the artists that were covered by the incredibly tight band that went on to play Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and even some songs in Afrikaans, much to the delight of the J’Bay locals.
Clint & Co have been together for 7 years and have entertained audiences all over South Africa and even further afield to Zimbabwe where they played to 4 000 people.
Helena Terblanche from Potters Place said that last night was the second time the band had played in Jeffreys Bay. “Both times the place has been packed and we will definitely be getting Clint & Co back to Jeffreys Bay in the near future,” said Helena after the show. “They have a wide appeal and we have had requests from their fans to get them to return to Jeffreys Bay”.
Long time fan of the Clint and Co, Tammi Shaw was ecstatic with the evening’s entertainment. ‘I have wanted to watch this band play live for a long time and was stoked to find out they were playing in J’Bay, said Tammi. “Their original music is so good and they put on a excellent show that kept us entertained all evening”.
Local real estate magnate Nick Melck agreed and said that the band provided more than just music. “Clint is an entertainer and that’s what people want; they want to be entertained. Clint is a ballad man and it would be cool to see him play more of his own songs. This guy is probably South Africa’s best kept secret in the music industry”.
Clint & Co are heading down to Plettenberg Bay for their next gig tonight. Stay in touch with the band via their website.
The next live show at Potters place is on 24 June with Jac de Priester. Bookings are essential and more information can be found by visiting Potters Place.
