Kicking off on Wed night are the awesome Hot Water (R130). They’re a fusion of everything we love & know about being South African. From kwasa-kwasa to sakkie-sakkie, from folk & blues to maskanda. Our Live Session with them last year was world class & had everyone up & dancing. Simply put – musical statement of happiness & one hell of a jam.
On Thursday night it’s The Josh Hawks Band (R50). We’re old fans of Josh from the days when he was lead singer of The Streaks & The Zap Dragons. But these days he’s better known as singer & bass player for Freshlyground. Josh has teamed up with long time Johnny Clegg Band drummer, Barry Van Zyl, to form an exciting new act. Together with guitarists Chris Bakalanga from Kinshasa & James Kibby from Cape Town, they make up the ‘Josh Hawks Band’. The sound draws from Pan African Worldbeat, Punk, Grunge & classic ‘Beatles rock & roll’!
Friday night, it’s some easy listening live Jazz starting from 7pm and on Sunday afternoon, we’ve got local talent Benjamin Tainton on stage. Always a pleasure to watch!
