Last January the Road Warriors launched their year-long celebration of three decades of performance together with a run at the Baxter in Cape Town and garnering high critical acclaim in the process. Since then, this iconic guitar duo has unleashed their inimitable brand of acoustic guitar music on appreciative audiences throughout South Africa.
Needless to say, the length and breadth of this particular guitar duos’ performing history and the sheer vivacity and brilliance of their combined guitar playing, has ensured that their popularity cuts across all age groups and several generations. There are no other genres of performing musicians outside of these two who can lay claim to such a boast. But just sit in their audience and see for yourself.
The road leads many places for the Warriors and this October the tar will deliver them to Olive’s Bistro in Bedfordview, Johannesburg. Olive’s Bistro is a fine-dining theatre/restaurant and will be offering up a scrumptious 3-course meal as part of the ticket price.
