A TRIBUTE TO JOE COCKER

It seems unlikely, but mild-mannered Sarel Greyling is Joe Cocker.  His show is truly a tribute to the gravel-voiced singer and a must-see for fans of classic numbers such as “WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS” and “HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME”.

Be prepared for all the elements that make Joe Cocker one of a kind – the voice, the jerky mannerisms, the sweat and the suffering.  Rounded off with the sounds of a 12 piece backing band and singers who know their stuff.

Sarel, who is a photographer by day, serves as inspiration to others who are still planning to follow their dreams. A visit to a singing teacher changed his life, and today he’s well on his way to a successful music career.  His plans for life after Joe Cocker include recording his own composition – with tribute to his alter ego,

Extract out of Volksblad:

My skeptisisme oor ‘n sanger wat dink hy kan die unieke Joe Cocker met sy spastiese bewegings en growwe stem naboots, het soos mis voor die son verdwyn toe Sarel Greyling met die eerste treffer, “With a little help from my friends,” wegval.

Sarel is Cocker uitgeknip. Hy sweet self nes die sanger wat liedjies soos Unchain my heart, Up where we belong en Have a little faith in me gesing het.

Die nege spelers in die orkes en drie agtergrondsangers is ook tipies van Cocker se konserte. Anton Esterhuyse se verwerkings is uitstekend en al die spelers het puik gespeel.

Almal wat na Cocker verlang behoort op te ruk om na sy vertoning te gaan kyk
