Ian von Memerty Takes on KEYBOARD KILLERS at the Piano at Theatre On The Bay
Take South Africa's "king of the keyboard", Ian von Memerty, put him together with eight of the greatest songwriting piano stars and you have the recipe for a smash-hit show: KEYBOARD KILLERS.
Of the millions of people who play the piano, only a few rare individuals create music and lyrics that inspire all humanity for decades. In KEYBOARD KILLERS, Von Memerty takes eight of the greats - Stevie Wonder, Noël Coward, John Legend, Irving Berlin, Freddie Mercury, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and Billy Joel - an outstanding octave of pianistic power, and together with a driving percussionist and a sexy thrumming double bassist, shares his love for these iconic creators.
KEYBOARD KILLERS promises an electrifying collection of talent and an unparalleled musical legacy Featuring the drama of "Bohemian Rhapsody", the swinging cool of "I Get A Kick out Of You", the wicked wit of "Don't Put Your Daughter On the Stage, Mrs Worthington", the romance of "Ordinary People", the showbizz razzle-dazzle of "Puttin' On the Ritz", the groove and joy of "Isn't She Lovely" and the toe-tapping stride of "Ain't Misbehaving", Von Memerty is all set to bring to life the virtuosity of these musicians, their style, and the sheer joy of their great music and timeless lyrics.
