THE BARNYARD THEATRE

FRONTLINE SINGER/ PERFORMER
Barnyard’s live music shows transcend boundaries; they are vibrant, uplifting, highly entertaining, and feature thegreatest hits of our time. In addition, we regularly host well-known South African bands, comedians and performers.

FRONTLINE SINGER/ PERFORMER

The group, RymStoff (Christoff de Beer and Raymond Ray) definitely attracted attention with their first single, Hartvlinders.
Raymond, a true “rocker” and from Rustenburg, joined Gresham Records in 2003 and released the hit song “Calling”. He
has shared the stage with some of South Africa’s greatest artists and still regularly has audiences on their feet when he performs as lead singer in many of the Barnyard Theater productions.
His vocal prowess allows him to sing songs from Bryan Adams to Axel Rose. Christoff and Raymond’s paths crossed with those of Hugo Ludik (Founding Member of ADAM and also owner of Muse Productions) and Hugo immediately noticed the talent. Together they decided on the name RymStoff, which consists of a combination of their names.
