A SCHOOL OF ROCK EXPERIENCE DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS 18 AND OLDER

School of Rock’s Adult Programme is for students over 18 who are looking to improve their musical proficiency, or pick up an instrument with no prior musical experience. As with most School of Rock music programmes, the Adult Programme uses a performance-based music education approach. This means the curriculum focuses on learning music concepts and applying them in a live performance setting. Our Adult Music Programme includes one weekly private lesson and a weekly group rehearsal. Every student is placed in a band of fellow adults and then assigned specific songs as a way of learning key music concepts and skills. Adult students then take the stage to perform at a live show.

Clout

pD42A0270x

BOOK NOW

Clout’s first and biggest hit, ‘Substitute’, was a new arrangement of a The Righteous Brothers song, composed by Willie Wilson. In 1978, their version reached No. 1 in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Austria, Denmark and Belgium. It also reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart and remained in the UK charts for 15 weeks. ‘Substitute’ reached No. 67 on the USA Billboard Hot 100.

 Due to sanctions against South African artists and performers by UK’s Equity at the time, the BBC’s Top of the PopsTV programme acquired a video clip from the Netherlands to present the hit song for its top ten countdown.

A major success in Europe, Clout scored more Top 10 singles, notably ‘Save Me’, ‘You’ve Got All of Me’ and ‘Under Fire’.

 Clout split up in 1981, shortly after the release of their last major single, a re-arrangement of the Hall and Oates song ‘Portable Radio’.

 In 1992, their greatest hits package was released on CD, and it was re-mastered as The Best of Clout in 2010.

 2005 saw the band re-uniting after lead singer, Cindy Alter, returned to South Africa after spending 15 years in Los Angeles, USA. A new album, ‘Since They’ve Been Gone’ was released, which contained reworked versions of four of the band’s hits as well as new material. The album was supported by a 12 month tour across South Africa. The reunion saw all the members join forces apart from Lee Tomlinson (now Guy) and Ron Brettell. 

 In 2015, Cindy and Glenda made a number of guest appearances as a duo and played a number of charity gigs. 2017 saw a full reunion which was performed at a benefit concert in Johannesburg. Due to popular demand, the band, now including Alistair Coakley, but without Sandy, Lee and Jenny, are in the process of planning an international tour to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the release of ‘Substitute’ in 2018. 

PLEASE NOTE: Dinner is served from 6:30/7pm, the show starts at 8:30pm.
