The Final Countdown is a musical journey that takes you on a ride through six decades of fashion, radio, music and above all Rock ’n Roll.
We starting in the 50s with greased hair, ice-cream cones, the roadhouse, stovepipe jeans, milkshakes and Elvis, Ritchie Valens, Bill Haley, Buddy Holly and Shirley Bassey. Yeah, we’re hitting the fifties in real fine style and with true Barnyard vigour, passion and that signature shake, rattle & roll.
We then move on to the 60s where we introduce some of the greatest music of our time presented in a swinging London scene, Carnaby Street, where anything can happen. The sixties features music from Ben E King, The Beatles and Nancy Sinatra as well as our flamboyant compere ’Awesome Powers’. So get ready for a nostalgic trip that will have you rocking and a reeling to the decade of The Swinging Sixties when the world was free and the party went on forever!
In the 70s we take you on a journey through a decade that we will musically never forget! Featuring everything from rock groups like The Rolling Stones to the disco era of The Bee Gees, Tina Turner and ABBA! We all remember those crazy platform shoes when mirror balls and disco music instantly took the world by storm -- creating a never-ending party!
A vast amount of music was recorded in the 80s and we remember the movie themes like Fame and Footloose, icons like Lionel Ritchie, pop bands like Depeche Mode and our own local SA sounds of bands like Savuka and Hotline. The eighties was a time of absolute fun and produced simply the greatest hits and music of our era.
The 90s saw the creation of many diverse scenes in music, but the decade was best known for boy bands like Boyz II Men, pop bands like Roxette and icons like Jennifer Lopez. The nineties was a daring and innovative decade and produced music that we will always remember and cherish.
Lastly we arrive in present times and the year 2000 and beyond where the music still lives on. Groups like the Black Eyed Peas with “I Gotta Feeling” and Katy Perry with “Hot n Cold” ruled the airwaves. The rock scene saw hits by Kid Rock, and let’s not forget the Soccer World Cup 2010 with songs like Waka Waka.
This is the countdown, and what a journey it will be! The times have changed and so has the fashion but it lives on forever in The Final Countdown! The Final Countdown is the ultimate party and musical journey that relives memories, good times and music that is everlasting!
