Virtuoso Musicians Ben and Ronan team up for a groove inspired collaboration, demonstrating deep dedication to their craft and respect for each other as musicians. Using guitars, bass, tabla, didgeridoo, drums, percussion, loop pedals, fx and a whole lot of listening, this will be a mash-up of tight grooves, far out improvisations, soundscapes and melody. Music for everyone.

has been playing guitar for 20 years. Ben performs in a number of contexts, and has worked with a veritable who’s who of SA music. He produces his own recordings, a unique blend of Maskanda, Jazz, Indian Classical, Progressive Rock, Fusion, Middle Eastern and Avant Garde.

As a result of Corona, we have evolved into a more casual, ‘market-style’ approach to the way we operate. Patrons sitting outside at cafe Roux, will enjoy a more relaxed, self-serviced food experience and those booked for our indoor evening live music shows, will enjoy a selection of our most popular cafe Roux meals & drinks served by our longstanding waiters.

Dinner available between 6pm and 8pm.

Music starts at 8pm and will be finished by 9h30pm
