UNPLUGGED and DANGEROUS
Clint & Co, the new show !
Clint & Co is know for their extraordinary entertainment ability. Performing songs in an “unplugged” format is a complete new discipline and gives the show an amazing new dimension.
Clint & Co merrily strum their way through hits by Cat Stevens, Guns and Roses, Don McLean, Crosby Stills and Nash, Rodriguez, Otis Redding and many more.
Dangerous . . . ? You will have to come see!!

Clint Cunningham is 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!
Not only has Clint been successful as an entertainer and song writer, but has begun a new venture into making a television documentary series, which might lead to a movie.
His Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute has rocked sell out audiences at all of the Barnyards as well as The Performer Theatre, Richard Loring’s Sound Stage and many other venues such as the Rustic Theatre on Main, Blues Room, Keegans and the Firkin in Centurion.
Clint performed in the Carnival Symphonic Pops 2007 and was very well received! He sold more CD’s after each performance than any of the other artists! Due to popular demand, this made Clint determined to do the Creedence Clearwater Revival Tribute show at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena as a solo artist in April 2008 – performing to over 1 500 people.
From this success, Clint and his immensely competent band (Mike Dorea on bass, Larry Rose on drums and Peter Hanmer on guitars) went on to perform Clint’s U2 Tribute, a show called “Joe Cocker and Friends” and another called “Clint & Co … the best of.”
With Clint’s production “The Midnight Hour” featuring Connie Friedman on sax and keys, Rene Mabotha and Caitlin Wishart on vocals, 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 playing to almost 4 000 people in Harare. 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!
After one slots on Steve Hofmeyr’s “Dis Hoe Dit Is” in 2006, Clint was invited by Steve for another recording which was played on KykNet Channel (DSTV) 6 June 2008! As well as a guest spot on Egoli, Clint received UNBELIEVABLE response from the public after his appearance on “Noot vir Noot” earlier in 2008.
Clint has signed a 3 album deal with recording powerhouse EMI. In 2007 he released “Clint & Co … plays Creedence Clearwater Revival” available nationwide.
His much awaited solo album “Clint & Co … A Test of Faith” has been released successfully. Some of the songs on this album were written by Clint himself and also on the album is the English version of Steve Hofmey’rs “Pampoen”, called “Rescue Me”.
Two albums have followed since, The Best of Clint & Co, and the 2009 release, Positivity.
During November and December of 2009, Clint’s enormously successful show, The Midnight Hour, in conjunction with Richard Loring, was brought back to life for a six week run in
The Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace.
“Ultimately, Cunningham’s mission to create great rock music in the name of fun is a refreshing change in a world of pop idols and posturing. With boy bands and wannabe singers dominating our air waves, Cunningham and his sidekicks are emerging as one of the few real-deal, no frills bands on the local music scene.” Peter Van Der Merwe, The Star.
A passionate and wonderful entertainer with a massive voice, Clint is here to stay.
