Benefit show for Dad’s Army legend

A benefit show will be hosted in aid of musician Pieter Lindeque, who’s been left critically injured after a big fall.

Pieter is specially known for starting his own band, Dad’s Army.

His medical aid is, however, depleted and all funds raised will be used to settle the medical costs, which amounts to R72 000.

“The medical aid only covered two days at Linmed Hospital,” said Ria van Wyk, from Star Dust Productions.

“Pieter, who is still making use of an oxygen machine, is now at home with no one taking care of him.”

Pieter has no other family than his son, Pieter Junior, who has to work every day.

“We also want to help him (Pieter Junior) place his father (Pieter) in a rehabilitation village.”

The event will take place at noon on March 6 at Presley’s Night Club, Boksburg.

Well-known artists who will be performing at the concert are Lance James, Barbara Ray, Lieb Bester, Clive Bruce, André G, and many more.

For bookings, contact Ria on 082 455 3606.

Pieter Lindeque’s album will be on sale at R100.

Pieter started his music career as a bass player and vocalist in 1962. He performed with Tony Stroeble and Henry Barber and Soon Steyn.

They were the backing band when Barbara Ray was discovered. He worked closely with Johnny Congas and G Men until 1965.

Pieter then became a member of Gene Rockwell and The Falcons. Together they produced numerous hits.

After touring with Gene Rockwell, Pieter formed his own band named Dad’s Army, with members Carlo Leone, Jannie Stapelberg and Johan Hamman.
