Congo Cowboys is a band formed by Freshlyground members Simon Attwell (banjo), Julio Sigauque (bass) and Congolese lead singer Chris Bakalanga (guitar), together with South African drummer Unity Mzi. The band is excited to present music that draws on the foot stomping qualities of Bluegrass & Country, reimagined through Kwassa Kwassa African rhythms and Soukous guitar. The Congo meets the Deep South in a gritty exploration of Americana and ol’ timey ditties. Banjo and bluesy bass lines from boys in boots. It’s fire and hell, whisky and ribs, murder in the pines… BOYA TOSEPELA!
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
