BOOK NOW

An electrifying entertainer with a powerful, smoky voice, Gavin Edwards was destined for success from his first appearance on The Voice. Seizing the position as the runner up of the show, Gavin sprinted full steam ahead with phenomenal airplay for his first single, Sparks. The single shot to #1 on iTunes a day after release and has been igniting the airwaves from radio stations across the country since its release.
On 21 October 2016, Gavin released his phenomenal debut album, entitled Silver Skies, which reached the Top 10 on iTunes. The album was produced by Denholm Harding at the legendary B-Sharp Studios, together with JP De Stefani and Harshn Reddy. Gavin sourced songs from writers all over the world – as well as one of his own originals – to compile the track listing of the album. The album also features two covers, Say something (with the sublime vocals of Karlien van Jaarsveld) and The Climb. The album was recorded in four weeks in-between Gavin’s shows across the country.
He chose Silver Skies as the name of the album because it was one of his favourite tracks on the album and is about “being in a place where you’re doing great, feeling amazing and always chasing after silver skies.” When recording the vocals, he made sure to limit the takes to one or two to ensure his voice kept the live raw emotion he is known for, imperfections and all.
In late 2016 Gavin released his sophomore single, One Day, a foot-stomping, sing along anthem, as he ambitiously took to the road to promote his album on his incredibly popular “OppiePad” tour. He traversed half the country in 2 weeks, stopping in at every radio station he could and going to his fans one by one to share his music with them.

Fresh from making his first feature film début in the South African comedy drama, Finders Keepers, earlier in August this year, 2018 sees comedian Stuart Taylor returning to the stage with his hilarious new offering, Funny You Should Say That.

Comedy fans are in for a massive treat as the Grassy Park-born Taylor prepares to showcase his latest solo stage offering – his first comedy show in three years.

“It’s been a while since I’ve done a one-man show. So I’m really excited about doing a full hour of brand new material” he says.

Taylor is a perennial Cape Town favourite and his new show promises more of his hit-the-nail-on-the-head comic musings that will have you laughing out loud.

Adds Taylor: “Developing the material in the comedy clubs over the past few months has been a blast for me. I turned 40 recently, so I guess this show is my version of a ‘mid-life crisis’! I find that my tolerance for BS has gone down with age, so this show is about me being uncensored, saying what I want to say, and hoping y’all find my comic musing hilarious.”

Funny You Should Say That is directed by the multi-talented award-winning theatre director and comic, Rob van Vuuren – and promises to deliver all the laughs and punchlines to get your 2018 in a great mood.

Major musical influences include Karen Zoid, Freshlyground, Jack Johnson and the church band she grew up listening to.

My mother used to play the keyboard in our local church years ago. I remember going to rehearsals, always amazed by how good the band all sounded. I remember how badly I wanted to play the guitar.” After playing piano as a young girl and finding it to be not quite to her liking, her parents bought her her first guitar, and she never looked back.

Born and raised in Mossel Bay by a family with a love for music, she was exposed to a large variety of South African rock bands that the family would listen to in the car on long road trips. It wasn’t long till she headed off to Cape Town, guitar in hand, ready to conquer the world.

Ruby June has, along with her band, played all over Cape Town and surrounds and entertained and enthralled many excited crowds. The band has never been afraid to work hard and keep at it in an ever-changing South African music industry.

BOO!2018

BOOK NOW

Boo! began in 1997 in the backstreets of dirty Brixton, Johannesburg, when it’s first members, Ampie Omo, Chris Chameleon and Leon Retief conspired to make music that would go against most of the conventional wisdom of the time.  Having considered names like “Yello Lilo” and “Die Wit Ding Wat in Die Pad Le”, it was Chris’ dream of playing to the sound of a stadium boo-ing the band that eventually won out.  Although the name was in part, designed to thwart any chances of feedback on a bad performance, this contingency was never required as Boo! became not only one of South Africa’s favourite bands of all time, but also one of the country’s proudest musical exports to both Europe and North America.

In 7 years Boo! acquired an enormous cult following worldwide by performing 800 gigs in 17 countries, including 14 states in the USA as well as countries such as Hungary and Croatia. Brandishing their self-styled genre of “monkipunk”, Boo! performed at various European and American festivals with the likes of the White Stripes, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Franz Ferdinand, Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, Placebo, Coldplay amongst others.  The band also received a South African Music Award (SAMA) in 2002 for ‘Best Pop Album’.

The band’s sound consisted of bass, drums, brass, keyboards and percussion; notably lacking guitar.  In spite of this unusual orchestration, Boo! hit the number one position on the 5FM top 40 with “Stagefright” and a number two position with “OOAA”, testimony to frontman, bassist and resident drag queen, Chris Chameleon’s exceptional songwriting abilities.

In September 2004, Ampie Omo and Leon Retief announced their resignation from Boo! and performed their final show with the band on 14 December 2004.  Leon Retief continued his career in a drive to create order from the chaos that is the general state of affairs behind the scenes in South African music.  Ampie Omo continued his career as a member of ska-outfit Fuzigish and was the invited guest trombonist for the Violent Femmes when they played in South Africa in 2005 and 2007. Chris Chameleon surprised his punk pundits and cohorts by becoming one of the best-selling and critically most acclaimed artists in the Afrikaans music landscape, notching up a total of 19 national awards in four years including a South African Music Award (SAMA) and a Medal of Honor from the South African Academy of Science and Arts.

2010 saw Boo! back with a change in wardrobe and drummers with Riaan van Rensburg taking over from Princess Leonie. The album, recorded in Amsterdam, typified the very musically irreverent and emotional antics which created this South African legend.

After an impressive second debut at the Ramfest festivals in both Johannesburg and Worchester, Boo! had announced their return in no uncertain terms and had made it clear that that little something that has been missing from South African music for years is a loud and clear: Boo!

After much ado and what had possibly become the most anticipated album in the history of South African music, Boo! finally released “The Three Of Us”. Chris Chameleon, who is once again at the helm on bass guitar and vocals, was joined by long time collaborator and multi-instrumentalist, Ampie Omo. The latest addition to the lineup, completing the trio and adding the beats to the funk was Riaan van Rensburg on drums.

August 2010 saw a very exciting new partnership form as Boo! signed to Seed, a Division of Top Independent Record Label, Sheer Sound! Combining the Indie Music Genius of Boo! and the passion of the Indie team at Seed, the oyster has it’s grain of sand to show what greatness this partnership will achieve. Sheer Sound is very proud to have Boo! join the family at Seed!

“The Three Of Us” is an album that embodies the familiar Boo! sound yet also has an air of maturity in terms of the songwriting. The band set up camp in Amsterdam to record the album and on their return, a limited edition run of albums was released for sale at gigs only. The album had since been completely remixed by Neal Snyman with audio approval by Theo Crous (Parlotones, The Dirty Skirts, Prime Circle, Louise Carver, Chris Chameleon, Springbok Nude Girls, Paul E. Flynn) and remastered by Jonathan Crossley. The stunning 24-page booklet featuring the artwork of Wilma Britz has also been given the onceover by designer Joanna Peters.

Boo! launched the album in style at Montecasino on October 15 2010, to a crowd of nearly 500 people huddled together on a fresh Spring evening at Montecasino in the North of Johannesburg to witness the birth of one of the most anticipated albums in South African rock.

Chris Chameleon, Ampie Omo and Riaan van Rensburg, unleashed songs from their brand new album, as well as old familiars, onto the crowd of onlookers. The performance was topped off with stage pyrotechnics, mimes and street buskers. The band conducted interviews before the launch at the Absa Balloon.

Said Chameleon after the gig, “well, there you have it – our baby monkey, “The Three Of Us”’ is now launched. It will go out into the world and be all the ape it can be! Thanks all for coming out and making it such a special night for us!”

Since May 2012 Boo! went into remission for a few years and is now ready and geared to resume activities.

Boo! has established a culture of dynamism within the band since its inception, and this year fans will be treaded to yet another Boo!volution as the band returns to the live circuit for more passionate Monki Punk performances which has now evolved into Guerilla Punk!

Fast forward 6 years, and you have one of the most uniquely talented musicians to come onto the scene in South Africa. With unbelievable abilities with both the guitar and keyboard, supplemented by an incredibly versatile and toned voice, Richard has the makings of being a big star both locally and abroad.

As a writer, he has grown into a force to be reckoned with penning some songs that are worthy of classic status. His debut offering “Middle Ground” released on the 7th of October 2016.

 Richard describes the album as a diverse album sonically but at the same time the message throughout remains similar and the core sound of the album is consistent and identifiable.

“The goal of this album was to be as true to who I am as a person as possible. The goal was to make music that I believe in, because I feel like if you believe in what you are doing, others will believe in it to. I never want to be putting on an act.”

A prolific performer and a quintessential purveyor of cool, Richard is a man of many talents including corporate and stage shows in addition to his sometimes electric and sometimes haunting live performances.

BOOK NOW

South Africa’s first season of The Voice SA in 2016 inspired many people to break out of their comfort zones and risk pursuing music as a career. Craig Lucas (24) from Elsiesrivier in Cape Town is a graduate in Economics and Politics at UCT, but despite a promising career ahead of him in the corporate world, Craig has always secretly loved singing. He made a promise to his mother that he would finish his degree first before staring on a road to music, and boldly took the plunge to come to The Voice SA, despite never having sung in front of so many people before. His blistering version of The Animals House of the Rising Sun was enough for all four of the coaches to press their buzzers and despite some serious pleas, Craig chose Kahn Morbee the first coach to turn for him as his coach.

The singer went on to win the coveted title in the shows second edition and Craig immediately signed a lucrative record deal with Universal Music.

Craigs debut single, Said This is out now on iTunes worldwide, with a full length album delivered later in 2017.

BOOK NOW

Coming from being one of the 8 females in the top 16 of Idols season 9 , I can say that I have grown since then and so has my music. After being eliminated from the Idols Season 9 show, I somehow got more motivation and inspiration to write more of my own songs. So my music is all about life, my experiences, my lessons and I do believe in always leaving a hopeful tone in my songs. So I think the audience can expect to be amazed as they will leave the place full of hope, smiles and laughter.

Right now, I am currently busy with all the logistics for my second single and along with that a music video will too be released. So that is the next step for me and I am really excited about that and also to perform more LIVE and to share my music with more people. That is ultimately what I am most looking forward to in the future. My music journey hasn’t always been all sunshine and roses, and to me it’s not about fame and people shouting my name, that eventually is a blessing when it comes, but to me it’s all about the people you meet along the way, those you learn from and those you get to impact be it musically/socially and even spiritually. And I love every single bit of this journey and who I am becoming.

Besides writing songs and recording in studio, I too lead worship at a local church here in Paarl. I have a thing for hearts, and my favorite emoji on watssapp would be the BLUE HEART emoji, simply cause those are 2 of my favorite things. Besides singing and writing, I love reading, nature and sometimes just sitting at the beach does wonders to my soul.

My best gig experience was when I got the whole crowd singing along and it was just me with a guitar and that reminded me of how people enjoy it when you are uniquely yourself and how passion can drive a crowd.

My worst gig experience, I wouldn’t say worst I think it’s just funny.. But I sang at an event where there was a moment for all the lights to go off, at that time I was just recovering from bad sinus. The gig happened to be outside the evening and the wind was blowing like crazy. When the time came for me to go on stage, I had a runny nose..I managed to sing and make it sound like I’m not thinking about my nose running.. and luckily the lights were off, otherwise I think people would’ve just been starring at my runny nose hahaa
