10 of South Africa’s biggest music heroes.
3 Hours of non-stop power hits.
Blood Brothers is ready to fight for their rightful rock legacy as South Africa’s first ever super group.
South Africa has a legion of rock legends and local talent – in the fight against cancer, and we’ve picked ten to take us to war. As one band, they’ll unite to conquer in their biggest struggle yet. They’ll perform the major hits that made them famous, plus they’ll take on songs from the international bands that influenced their sound. Never before have so many local legends agreed to partake in a venture of this magnitude for a good cause. History has been made even before the bloody battle begins.
Each Super Group band member has been cherry picked from our country’s premier crop of musicians and bands. The choices are bold, the talent undeniable, the result – unforgettable. Raw, razor sharp and ready for battle are 5 vicious vocalists: Arno Carstens, Albert Frost, Francois Van Coke, George van der Spuy and Kobus De Kock jnr. Bare-knuckled and armed with the ultimate artillery of guitars and bass, are Hunter Kennedy, Rian Zietsman and Loedi Van Reenen while Jason Hinch and Isaac Klawansky dirty up the drums as they lead their comrades into combat.
This ten-strong Super Group is a fearless and formidable force to be reckoned with as Blood Brothers blows up at the Big Top Arena, Carnival City on the 18th July 2015. Vrede Foundation is an initiative that aims to educate young people about cancer. By combining the toughest of the tough, this Super Group stands shoulder-to-shoulder in a sheer show of talent and rock glory for an excellent cause.
As Blood Brothers become brutes, may the chaos commence.

Now I for one can’t wait for this gig.
I do believe that if you -like me- love good music, you will be there.
And when you see me there, don’t bug me, I’ll be so into the music I won’t even notice you 😉
