Rock the Boat – SA bands to come out retirement for a good cause

Rock the BOAT

with Die Heuwels Fantasties, Foto Na Dans, New Holland & Black Handed Kites

Klein Libertas Theatre, Stellenbosch – 6 September

 Foto Na Dans and New Holland come out of retirement in aid of their friend, Botes.

On Friday 6 September, friends will come together at Klein Libertas Theatre in Stellenbosch for a mini festival to raise funds for their beloved friend, Johann Botes. The line-up includes Die Heuwels Fantasties, New Holland, Black Handed Kites and Foto Na Dans.

This project came to life after 27 year old Johann Botes, “Botes”, as he is affectionately known, was involved in a serious car accident outside Velddrif on 5 December 2012. Botes suffered multiple head injuries, femur and pelvic fractures. After more than a month in ICU, 8 weeks in rehab and endless months of therapy, funds are running out. His medical aid has been exhausted and although he has shown remarkable progress, it might take him months, even years, of therapy and physical rehabilitation to make a full recovery.

News spread like wildfire through his massive network of friends.

Botes is well acquainted with some talented South African musicians and they immediately stepped up to do something for their friend. Foto Na Dans and New Holland are both coming out of retirement for this once-off extravaganza with the popular Die Heuwels Fantasties and Black Handed Kites. All four bands are performing for fee in aid of their friend.

The fight for life epitomizes Botes’s undying spirit.  Time has proven his happiness to be contagious. The love for this one-of-a-kind individual encouraged his friends to create an event that will not only help Botes’ recovery but also to be a reflection of his happy attitude and “good times” philosophy!
