Rocktoberfest at the Quarry
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | September 27, 2016
The first ever Rocktoberfest will be held at The Quarry on the 1st of October 2016.
Our lucky winners from the Facebook ticket giveaway are: Lee Glanville and Nuschka Peters. They each won a set of double tickets to Rocktoberfest!
This is the perfect event to kick off October, and the last quarter of 2016. The event is open to all ages, so pack your blankets and folding chairs, and bring your family for an evening of great music!
South African legend, the Springbok Nude Girls have come out of a 5-year hiatus to headline the event. Joining the Nude Girls on stage is a host of big local bands; namely McCree, Pebbleman, Southern Wild and Kiss the Sky.
This powerful 4 piece rock outfit is getting ready to blow some serious hair back! Even if you don’t have a single hair on your head!
This is pure 70’s hard rock with a modern Progressive twist, a dangerously high dose of musical instrumentation and a good smattering of smoky Blues sauce to round off this delicious original rock recipe.
“I’m thrilled to have the undisputed rock kings on our stage,” says Mike Crawford of The Quarry “The Nude Girls represent a timeless age of South African rock. Their music conjures memories of the previous two decades and having them on stage with modern rock groups unifies the timeline of SA rock. To me, they are the epitome of our local rock culture.”
The Springbok Nude Girls (also referred to as Nudies or Nude Girls) burst onto the South African music scene in 1994. They played their first show in Stellenbosch.
The band grew from strength to strength and toured the country extensively. In 2000 they were awarded a SAMA for Rock Album of the year with their album Surpass the Powers.
