Entertainer Bio

Clint & Co are no stranger to South African audiences. After 15 years of slogging the pubs and clubs all over South Africa (reportedly the highest paid one-man band in the country at that stage), Clint is now enjoying great success with his various shows in top theatres.

His Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute (over 600 shows in ten years) has rocked sold-out audiences at all of The Barnyards as well as The Performer Theatre, Richard Loring’s Sound Stage, all of the major casinos and many other venues such as The Rustic Theatre on Main, The Blues Room and The Firkin in Centurion.

Clint performed in the Carnival Symphonic Pops and he was very well received! He sold more CD’s after each performance than any of the other artists! Due to popular demand

Clint was determined to do the Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena in 2008 – performing to over 1500 people. From this success, Clint and his immensely competent band went on to perform Clint’s U2 tribute, ‘Rattle and Hum’, shows called ‘Joe Cocker & Friends’ and ‘Rock on Safari’. ‘The Midnight Hour’ ran for 6 months at Richard Loring’s Sound Stage and ‘Thunderstruck’ ran for 5 months over 2 years at the Globe Theatre Gold Reef City.

Clint’s production ‘The Midnight Hour’, featured Connie Friedman on sax and keys, Rene Mabotha and Caitlin Cunningham on vocals. They packed the Sound Stage in 2007 & 2008, 7 shows a week for close on 6 months.

This is an amazing achievement for any artist.
The band (Clint & Co) have toured Zimbabwe several times playing to almost 4000 people in Harare.

They rocked Maputo, Gaborone and Swaziland, toured Cape Town and the Garden Route with huge success and they have done a myriad of corporate events from the V&A Waterfront to the Sun City Superbowl.

“I believe that I facilitate healing through the medium of music,” says Clint, “I am passionately connected to music and performance… it is my calling.” After 15 years in the pubs and clubs and almost as many years in the supper theatres, casinos and show venues, Clint has uniquely built a business outside the mainstream music industry where he and his band enjoy great support from the motorcycle and boxing industries.

He is also a licensed Ring Announcer in the Boxing world and regularly works for Uncle Jeff Ellis’ African Ring and Rodney Berman’s Golden Gloves. Clint’s connection to Boxing has taken him to Monaco in the South of France several times where he has sung the South African National Anthem in the ring before various World Title fights enabling him to meet and socialise with the Prince and Princess of Monaco.

Not only is Clint successful as an entertainer and songwriter, but he has also written a fictional novel and produced and directed a movie called Universal Language, which documents his various motorcycle and musical exploits. His Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute has rocked sell out audiences at most supper theatre venues, from all the Barnyard Theatres to Richard Loring’s Sound Stage.

To date they have performed over 600 CCR Tribute shows. From this success, Clint and his immensely competent band comprising Dawid Visser on bass, Larry Rose on drums and Peter Hanmer on guitar, have enjoyed several runs at top casinos. With Clint’s production “The Midnight Hour” they packed Richard Loring’s Sound Stage in 2007 / 2008, 7 shows a week for close on 6 months. This is an amazing achievement for any artist. The band has toured Zimbabwe several times, they have rocked Maputo and Swaziland, toured Cape Town and the Garden Route with huge success, done a myriad of corporate events from the V & A Waterfront to the Sun City Superbowl. Two DVD’s and eighteen albums later, Clint still feels like this is only the beginning. After the big success he had with the hit song Cry Baby Cry some 20 years ago, Clint says it’s time for global number 1 hit!

Clint & Co also surprised his fans in 2012 with the release of his first book, a fantasy adventure novel called ‘Sothafa’ and his latest announcement is his DJ slot on 93.8 MIX FM every Wednesday evening where he gets to sing live in the studio and to play his most favourite songs.

“Ultimately, Cunningham’s mission is to create great rock music in the name of fun. It is a refreshing change in a world full of pop idols and posturing. With boy bands and wannabe singers dominating our airwaves, Cunningham and his sidekicks are emerging as one of the few ‘real-deal’, ‘no frills’ bands on the local music scene.”
