Rockville 2069 Graphic Novel Press Release

Rockville 2069

Rockville 2069 is a relevant and contemporary rock musical set to create a new shift in this genre. It is a fully orchestrated production that sees over 60 artists and musicians from different cultural and musical backgrounds collaborating to bring a new, sometimes discordant, always thrilling voice to the rock musical scene.

The musical is the creative brainchild of composer Johnny Ray, who dreamed up the concept of communicating the story through a graphic novel after attending a comic festival, having noticed a gap in the market for a production that combines the current zeitgeist taste for sweeping sci-fi fantasies with a decidedly lyrical mode of execution. It was then decided to further explore the sci-fi theme by means of a graphic novel that would serve to launch the new-fangled epic on both the music- and literary scenes.

Concert for the CD Launch of Rockville 2069 takes place on Saturday the 18th of August at Kelvin Grove in Newlands, Cape Town. Doors open at 20h00, show starts at 20h30.

Playlist Creator | Web Marketer The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He can sometimes be found behind-the-counter at Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film. He can be heard on the streaming radio stations All Jazz Radio and Shelter Radio He is also very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
