Ford forces Jack Parow to halt show at gala event

2015-02-11 10:05

Cape Town – Jack Parow was asked to cut his show short on Monday evening at the annual dealership gathering for Ford, reports Netwerk24.

Jack was reportedly busy with his third song when a note was given to him by an employee asking him to "take a break!"

Ford, who booked Parow for the event, couldn’t deal with all the swearing in Parow’s songs. Parow told Netwerk24 that at first he thought there were issues with the sound, as people were up and down by the stage and making a commotion, but then the message came that he should swear less.

Parow says he doesn’t mind if people ask him to tone it down a bit, but no asked him to do so for this show.

According to Parow, everything went well with the soundcheck before the show, which was held at a resort in the Drakensberg. He sang Hosh Tokolosh and Bloubek during the soundcheck.

Parow said that people were friendly and even looked like they enjoyed the show. A Ford spokesperson told Netwerk24 that they regret what happened and says they should’ve considered the diverse crowd and discussed it with Parow beforehand.
