The West End jol took a trip down memory lane over the weekend, paying tribute to the legends of music in the golden age of soul, funk and disco.

The Golden Tones, a quartet from Atlantis and Delft, set the stage with their tribute to The Drifters, followed up in the second half by more sounds of Motown.

Solo artist Sherwin Pretorius delivered a stellar performance, bringing back the sound and moves of the male stars of the 80s and 90s.

The crowd also went bos for Joanne from Darling who gave an awesome tribute performance to Celine Dion and Tina Turner.

The feisty diva filled the dance floor in less than a minute.

An impressed Candice, 32, from Mitchells Plain, said: “Out of all the acts tonight, Joanne really took us back in time, one would say you’re listening to the real deal.”

The group 4Love did a medley of disco songs, while MC Diego Jeffries kept the show running smoothly.

Nigel Gallant came out for a payday jol with his friends.

“We like live music and this show was simply like the real deal, they might not look like the artists but if you close your eyes for a minute, it feels like the real singer is right here,” he says.
