BENROCK is the brainchild of two local Benoni bands.

The concert idea was conceived in late 2015 and by the end of January 2016, the founding bands, The Burning and Monkey Finger, performed at the first Benrock show, held at the Old Benonians Football Club, in front of 500 fans.

As the popularity of BenRock grew, the organisers saw the need to showcase more bands and, therefore, needed a bigger venue.

The founding band members said BenRock is managed by the bands for the bands and aims to placate the already rock music starved local community.


And this is exactly what they plan to do again on May 6 at The Beer Co/Runway Bar in Dakota Avenue, in Germiston, a venue that is the ideal environment for the magic that is good ol’ rock ‘n roll!

There is a diverse group of musicians performing at this show and it promises to be a musical treat for the whole family – from a beautiful acoustic performance and classic blues rock, to interesting instrumentals and the finale of hard and heavy rock! The proceeds from the show go directly to the artists and tickets are R60 for adults and kids under 12 get in free (tickets will be available at the door).
