Neil Young payfastbooking
Neil Young, Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, producer, director and screenwriter, began performing in a group covering Shadows instrumentals in Canada in 1960. In 1966, after a brief stint with the Rick James-fronted Mynah Birds, he moved to Los Angeles, formed Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and others, joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969.Young has recorded a steady stream of studio and live albums, playing solo and with his backing band Crazy Horse. Neil also played with fellow Canadian songbird Joni Mitchell.
Young's often-distorted electric guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and signature tenor singing voice transcend his long career. This musical genius is constantly improvising. He also plays piano and harmonica on many albums which frequently combine folk, rock, blues and other musical styles. His gritty guitar work, especially with Crazy Horse, earned him the nickname "Godfather of Grunge" and led to his 1995 album Mirror Ball with Pearl Jam. More recently Young has been backed by Promise of the Real.
Young directed (or co-directed) films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), Greendale (2003), and CSNY/Déjà Vu (2008). He also contributed to the soundtracks of the films Philadelphia (1993) and Dead Man (1995).
Young has received several Grammy and Juno awards. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted him twice: as a solo artist in 1995 and in 1997 as a member of Buffalo Springfield. In 2000, Rolling Stone named Young the 34th greatest rock 'n roll artist.
In this tribute The Dusty Rhodes Band is a folk/rock band who recreates that unique acoustic sound of Neil Young.Featuring songs such as Alabama, harvest, old man, southern man, teach your children, heart of gold and many more, this show is not to miss.
The Dusty Rhodes Band Members:

Mark Larkin – Vocals, Guitars & Harmonica -Starting in the 70’s at the Four Winds Folk Club in Port Elizabeth Mark has kept playing, digging in on some great guitar styles. As an enthusiast to folk / country music he started alternative country outfit “Los Hombres”. After many saddle sores and a brief foray into hard rock this journey brought Mark to form the Dusty Rhodes Band.
Brandon Gordon – Acoustic Bass & Backing Vocals -In the late 1980’s Brandon played for “Full Tilt” one of the hardest rocking party bands in Cape Town. So thirty odd years down the line, its back to basics and loving it.
Steve Guild – Percussion & Backing Vocals - Back from an eight year sabbatical. In the earlier years Steve was on the front line of Johannesburg original bands playing concerts along with some of South Africa’s top acts – No Friends of Harry, Bright Blue, The Usual and more.
