BOOK NOW

Born in Johannesburg with roots in the Eastern Cape, Deslynn is a Cape Town girl by heart. A soul singer, songwriter and performer, Deslynn loves art as much as she loves her afro.

Deslynn is almost quiet and sometimes loud. Her vibrant personality and subtle demeanor is neither too much nor too little, she floats eloquently between both worlds.

A graduate of the Campus of Performing Arts (COPA) in Cape Town where she majored in Vocal Performance under the guidance of Emily Bruce (Gold Fish). When asked about her giftedness, Deslynn accredits her musical prowess and passion to the influence of her father.  The late Desmond Malotana was the founder, band leader and keyboardist for well-known 80’s band, “Brenda and the Big Dudes”. He wrote and produced songs like “Promises” and the hit single, “Weekend Special”.

She released her self- titled EP, “Deslynn” in 2014.  The EP is Deslynn’s first offering on record and enjoys success on local radio. “How” – a cinematic love ballad placed number 1 on the Hunters SA Top Ten (Heart FM) on 12 June 2014 where it remained for 2 weeks. The song was also ranked 8th in the Hunters SA Top 10 chart for the year 2014 while other songs on the EP dabble in Reggae, Soul and House.

Music makes her skin glow and her mind is always racing with a melody. Through her artivism, she gets really personal, really quick, intent on speaking to the souls of her listeners from the moment they hear her voice.

BOOK NOW

Originally from Cape Town, Groove-pop outfit Red Tape Riot has been delivering fresh sounds for the past 5 years, and their local and international success is greatly due to the outstanding live performances they’ve consistently delivered. This world-class act is a result of an evolution of all the band members’ influences that range from the post-punk sounds of the 80’s, to the swagger of Arctic Monkeys and The Cure, including elements of Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club, Dire Straits, and many others. This culminates into an altogether unique foot-tapping contrast between heartfelt melodies and strong party grooves.
The band embarked on a 3 month European tour in July of 2017, including a feature show at the 02 Academy Islington in August, as well as performances at iconic venues such as The Half Moon Putney, The Bedford, Dublin Castle, The Shed in Leicester and Finborough Arms. Due to their success in 2017, the band will be touring Germany and the UK again over summer 2018.

BOOK NOW

“Three part harmony not heard since the days of Crosby, Stills and Nash ruling the airwaves!”
This Trio combine their prodigious musical and vocal talents to form Hatchetman, a band that, as the name suggests, cuts straight to the heart with songs on life, love, and most things in between. Their soaring harmonies and searing dynamism in the musical accompaniment has brought many a person to tears. The honesty, and a willingness to explore the darker and more tender sides of the human condition, as well as a very personal and human presentation of the same, sets the band apart from many of their contemporaries. Lyrical topics range from heartbreak to a rumination of the multifaceted nature of Cape Town, while musically, the band meets somewhere between folk, rock, funk and acoustically inclined sounds, all delicately underpinned by the powerful, yet gentle blend of three voices.
The band consist of:
Jono Tait, the son of Richard and Retha Tait, owners of the Alma Café, one of Cape Town’s premier live music venues. Jono is a spirited character, and main songwriter for the band and is very candid in his lyrics as well as his onstage interaction with the crowd.
Brothers Nick and Matt Catto complete the trio. They bring an incredible blend of harmony and musical talent. This talent was inevitable considering the strong musical tradition as befits the latest generation of the Blundell musical clan, true South African folk royalty.

BOOK NOW

Is it magic, or an illusion of the mind? The arts of magic and mentalism are over 4000 years old, yet they continue to mystify and entertain audiences in 2018.
Watch veteran performers, magician Marcel Oudejans and mentalist Brendon Peel, as they show you what they have to offer in terms of mind-blowing entertainment, while they “duel on stage” in their respective disciplines. They’ll demonstrate their most visual illusions and mind-bending mystery, all with a twist of humour along the way.
In this brand new, never-before seen show we let you – yes YOU! – determine the outcome and the overall ending of the show depending on which you prefer more on the night: magic or mentalism.
This is a one of-a-kind magic illusion show that will allow the audience to be thrown into the driver’s seat as the audience decides what will happen next. Needless to say this show is guaranteed to be jaw dropping, hilarious, and above all entertaining.
 
Bio:
Marcel Oudejans is one of those rare magicians who is less interested in accumulating accolades from his peers than he is in creating amazing and unforgettable experiences for his audiences.  Oudejans has been a full-time professional magician since 2003 and in that time has entertained hundreds of blue-chip corporate audiences, high-profile executives and at international conferences, casinos, and luxury hotels. He’s been the producer of Cape Town Magic Club since 2016.
Brendon Peel is an award-winning mentalist hailing from Port Elizabeth. Peel has performed at every Grahamstown National Arts Festival since 2011 with solo hit shows such as Think Twice, Magic Through the Ages, and Mind Over Magic.

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

Watershed – structured around singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Craig Hinds who has always felt he is a man with a positive message to convey and after teaching high school for two years while playing his own material out in smaller venues Craig decided to take the opportunity to form a band and make his voice and songs heard across the world.

Watershed’s travels have led them to perform at the prestigious South by South West Music festival in Austin Texas and Canadian Music week to various dates across Europe where their music is particularly well received in Germany, Austria and Switzerland after a radio DJ on holiday in South Africa heard “Indigo Girl” and thought it would enchant his listeners. He was absolutely right. The play listing of the song on the local German station quickly built momentum and lead to them to be picked up by EMI Germany who released “In The Meantime” and every album & single since.

Working with various producer’s the band had the opportunity to hone all the facets that make up a great album and the result is their finest work to date. The new album “Watch the Rain” tips the hat to the new-age country sound while still remaining grounded in the cultured acoustic rock that Watershed is known and loved for and the first single off the album “Magical Energy” is already building momentum on the local South African charts.  While the term Watershed is universally used to describe a turning point, a lesser known use is in broadcasting field where it is used to describe the transition time when adult content can be shown and maybe now that’s a better fit for a band that has matured and realised the strength and depth of their sound and trusted in their process and abilities.  Watershed are 15 years in the making and nowhere near ready to stop.

Dream Noise duo, Medicine Boy return to Café Roux to celebrate the release of their new album, Lower, which arrives October 5th on London-based label, Fuzz Club Records.

Lower is a myriad of introspection and interpretation. There are wider themes, stranger worlds and deeper wells than before. It is some kind of attempt to draw comfort (however twisted) and companionship (however tainted) from chaos and confusion. It’s our attempt to find beauty in the underworld.”


Having recently relocated to Berlin and with a full European tour set for the end of the year, this will be Lucy and André’s only performance in the CBD for the foreseeable future.

As always with all their Café Roux shows, the set will focus on the more delicate, introverted side of their songs – “It’s as much about the noise as it is about the space in between.”

Medicine Boy will be joined onstage by Hezron Chetty (violin) and their longtime collaborator and musical partner, Werner von Waltsleben (drums).

BOOK NOW

Shaped by the two oceans on the shores of South Africa, JPson has ridden the wave of life to Europe and defined a musical style that can best be described as “Fresh Folk”. Music that let’s you open up to the groove of the moment, whilst forgetting the troubles of daily life.

Having taught himself to play the guitar on the beaches of Cape Town, South Africa, JPson spent his youth surfing the Atlantic Ocean and exploring vast musical territory, yielding his very own sunbaked infusion of Folk & Roots music. Through his lyrics JPson shares the essence of life that drives him around the world and the lessons he learns whilst traveling. Not only is his music incredibly uplifting but his rhythms and beats will get you grooving in a festive and unifying spirit, bound to inspire reflection and new connection.

His latest EP“Coming Home” is the first official release of his musical career and expresses his belief: “Home Is where your heart is”.

Coming from Swiss and South African background, JPson left South Africa right after school to go discover his European roots. What seemed like a 10 – month joy trip away from home turned into a 10 – year journey around Europe, which JP refers to as his University of life. Through his travels he realized on a regular basis how he would constantly find peace within musical melodies.

Even though the life of a wary traveler can sometimes be extremely tiring, he would often gather warmth and support from the music he listened to and find guidance in the music he created.

Guidance that taught him how to open up, to be happy and live life to the fullest as it is a wonderful gift that should be cherished with every single heartbeat.
