Press Release - KZN Midlands Musical Community

TOP KZN MIDLANDS MUSICIANS UNITE BEHIND BARRY (THE CAPTAIN) MEINTJES

If you’re a KZN Midlands musician or music fan, you’re likely to know Barry (The Captain) Meintjes. Barry is gravely ill, and to help cover his considerable ongoing medical costs, the local musical community will unite on Sunday the 4th of September at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm in Hilton.

Between noon and sunset over twenty of the Midlands’ top musicians will play at “Bands for Barry II” (it’s been ten years since The Captain’s first benefit concert after he fell off a wooden deck and lost the use of his legs). They will pay tribute to one of our longest-standing musical legends by performing a variety of old favourites and original compositions at the family-friendly event. Entry will cost R100 for adults, R50 for 12-16-year-olds and under 12s get in for free. Food and soft drinks will be on sale - BYOB.

A gentle friend to all, Barry is possibly best known as the long-standing bass player of the Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters, proprietor of Marshall Music Midlands and (in the latter capacity) as a patron and/or benefactor of the now-retired Midlands Musicians Club and its successor, Music in The Hills. More than that, he's just a much-loved human.
