Touring the country as one of the main attractions on different shows like Die Suidoosterfees, Huisgenoot Skouspel and many more has left member Ashley Pienaar's hometown fans with a long dry spell. 
On 27 September that spell will be broken when Ashley along with some of his friends will do a once-off show at the Parow Civic Centre. 
While Ashley will be hosting as well as be the main performer on the evening, along with performances by the Toxic Dance Crew, R&B and Old School Disco Singer Fabian and the boy band EXT, the other sensational artist to perform will be the 2010 SA's got Talent Winner, opera singer, James Bhemjee.
As many of you will know from previous articles, Ashley is not only a brilliant comedian, but he also has a string of hit records as an R&B artist.
Having on various occassions shared the stage with James Bhemjee but always with him as the comedian and host emcee and James doing opera, the audience will be in for a treat when for the first time in their two year history of working together Ashley Pienaar and James Bhemjee will be performing a breathtaking duo combining the operatic tenor of James with Ashley's versatile pop/RnB vocal range. They don't want to divulge too much but their vocal collaboration has been urged for by their friends for a long time and we can expect much more in the future and perhaps even on the night.

Knowing that James has a bit of a funny streak and can crack a good joke, has a suspicion that James might just also decide to wear the comedians jacket for a short spell at this show.
Ashley brings to the show a whole new routine with fresh material that this audience will be the first to experience.
As always demanded by the public, he will also perform revamped versions of his hilarious older material.
The show also promises to be child-friendly and is suitable for the whole family.
Check out the videos below from some of his older shows to see what you can look forward to.
