Clint and Co

Description

Clint Cunningham is no stranger to South African audiences. After 15 years of slogging pubs and clubs all over the country, Clint is now enjoying great success with his various shows in top theatres!

His Creedance Clearwater Revival Tribute (which holds over 600 shows in 10 years) has rocked sold out audiences at all of the Barnyards as well as The Performer Theatre, Richard Loring’s Sound Stage, all the major casinos and many other venues such as the Rustic Theatre on Main, The Blues Room and the Firkin in Centurion.

Clint performed in the Carnival Symphonic Pops and he was very well received! He sold more CD’s after each performance than any of the other artists! Due to popular demand, this made Clint determined to do the Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute show at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena in April 2008 – performing to over 1500 people!

From this success, Clint and his immensely competent band went on to perform Clint’s U2 Tribute ‘Rattle & Hum’ shows called ‘Joe Cocker and Friends’ and ‘Rock On Safari’. ‘The Midnight Hour’ ran for 6 months at Richard Loring’s Sound Stage and ‘Thunder Struck’ ran for 5 months over 2 years at the Globe Theatre Gold Reef City.

Clint’s production ‘The Midnight Hour’ featured Connie Friedman on sax and keys as well as Rene Mabotha and Caitlin Cunningham on vocals. They packed the Sound Stage in 2007 and 2008, with 7 shows per week for close on 6 months. This is an amazing achievement for any artist.

The band has toured Zimbabwe several times, playing to almost 4000 people in Harare. They have rocked Maputo, Gabarone and Swaziland, toured Cape Town and the Garden Route with huge success and they have done a myriad of corporate events from the V&A Waterfront to the Sun City Superbowl!

They have had 2 slots on both Steve Hofmeyr’s ‘Dis Hoe Dit Is’ and SABC 3’s Noot Vir Noot plus a guest spot on Egoli. Clint has received great response from many TV appearances.

15 albums down the line, Clint has a massive original repertoire including his hit song ‘Cry Baby Cry’ and two very successful Afrikaans to English translations.

Clint surprised his fans in early 2012 with the release of his first book; a fantasy adventure novel called ‘Sothafa’ and his latest surprise is his DJ slot on 93.8 MIX FM every Wednesday evening, where he gets to sing live in the studio and play his most favourite songs!

“Ultimately, Cunningham’s mission is to create great rock music in the name of fun. It is a refreshing change in a world of pop idols and posturing. With boy bands and wannabe singers dominating our air waves, Cunningham and his sidekicks are emerging as one of the few real-deal, no frills bands on the local music scene.”
Peter Van Der Merwe, the Star.

His unique ability to communicate with the audience and the way in which he involves the audience in his performances, places him in a league of his own!
