Love was in the air on Friday night at the Joseph Stone Auditorium, where comedian Waseef Piekaan and his guests brought the Valentine’s Day gees.

Piekaan presented Love and Laughter in the Stone, the line-up of soulful male singers including Ekraam Cupido and Austin Rose.

Cupido opened the show with love songs that had the tieties in hot flushes.

But it was Alan ‘The Singing Carguard’ Abrahams who lifted the roof with his spoofs of well-known Michael Jackson hits.

Rose calmed things down when he took the stage with a three-piece band, taking everyone on an imaginary romantic moonlight stroll with his love songs.

Waseef started the second half on a mal note, and his high-octane performance of Gangnam Style had mense in stitches.

How he managed to pull off all his wacky moves in his stywe red suit without splitting his broek cannot be explained.

The George Brothers - Mujahid, Mo and Yazeed, who are solo artists in their own right - took everyone down a trip of memory lane with lekker old school love songs from nearly every boy band you’ve ever heard of.

Monox had the crowd on the edge of their seats throughout his performance, performing kwaai dance moves to the beat of MJ hits.

Waseef’s alter ego, Aunty Mariam Kerrie - looking ravishing in a red dress and turban to match the love theme - ended off the show, chatting about love, life and laughter.

Pamela Muller says: “The show was something special, it catered for every age group. The music, dance and jokes, it’s a kwaai show put together by one of Cape Town’s icons, lekker Mr. Piekaan.”
