Program Director Will Wallace has been able to stretch the budget allocated from the Department of Arts and Culture and the lineup includes local bands Rorke Kemp, Sea Level (featuring Lance Goldberg), Bobby and the Dynamites, and Smoke Train. The Reals are the backing band for The Blues Summit on the Sunday and who could go wrong with them in the mix.

These performances are live – but with a twist! Local artists will perform live but since our international Blues friends couldn’t come to Durban in person due to Covid restrictions, they have willingly agreed to participate in a video production to be screened at the show. The line- up is formidable with some of our past performers supporting us wholeheartedly: Liz Mandeville (USA), Toronzo Cannon (USA), Fiona Boyes (Aus), Pat Savage (Canada), Charlie Love (USA), Donna Herula (USA), Yamil Jacobo (Argentina)and Khalif Wailin’ Walters (USA).

Bring food picnic baskets if you like- or buy from Kevin: The Rhumbelow Theatre serves light meals (burgers, chicken strips, wors rolls etc) and a full cash bar with a selection of beers, wines and soft drinks.

There will be a Merch Table so bring a few extra shekels for this too. Concorde Printers have a few Blues tee shirts and artists will have CD’s at the table.
