LIVE MUSIC @ Cafe Roux Ndhk with LEONINE, LANKY JAKE & FOLKLORE

With the fantastic response from the last show ALAS Academy held at Cafe Roux Noordhoek in June,  we have decided to bring the very coaches that make up ALAS Academy onto the intimate stage and create a night full of  live music and quality entertainment from the ladies and gents that teach at ALAS Academy, Fish Hoek.

This is not an acoustic evening and it will be an open door into the lives and sound of the teachers performance persona and how they have chosen to perform as independant artists.

Leonine, locally known as Amy Leigh Vermaak is taking to the stage as LEONINE and will be performing her live electric rock and roll with a soul-full cabaret twist.

Leonine has a strong and steady beat with powerful and lyrically rich vocals. Let the beat, the story and the voice entertain you. Be transported into the modern day theatre and let your imagination run wild.

With top notch production and all round quality full rich sounds, let it penetrate the ears and invite you to the magnificent Leonine that is.

” Leonine:Resembling or suggestive of a lion, as in being powerful or dignified. Someone or something that is like a lion. ”

Supported by Kevin Grant on Drums and Geoff Hart on Synth.

Music produced by Stuart Hiyarant Vermaak and Amy Leigh Vermaak

Lanky Jake, locally known as Jaco Botha is Lanky Jake the 26 year old falsetto singing, guitar slinging musician from Cape Town, South Africa.

His love for all things guitar, fused with a modern EDM flair and catchy Pop styled vocals, gives him a unique sound that quickly becomes familiar. He writes and produces all of his own music. He has a passion for live performance and entertaining crowds.

Folklore, locally known as Marie-Claire de Villiers is FOLKLORE. The name “Folklore” represents the ecstatic celebration of human existence, the unity of people, and the sharing of stories.

Marie-Claire believes this is exactly what music is about.

Folklore is strong vocal melodies over big basslines; electronic dance styles moving into each other through symphonic sounds; drum ‘n bass, dubstep, trap, house, bass, garage and elements of rock music burn together and yield surprises.

Marie-Claire’s voice is soulful, powerful, and huge in range. She is a soul singer at heart. Uplifting and euphoric dance music with soul is her life fire.

She’s always been musically schizophrenic with a reputation for attending 4 different types of music shows a week in her student days. She’s also known for her addiction to the dancefloor.

Acoustic rock artist Ard Matthews needs very little introduction to our cafe Roux audience. The much-loved frontman of legendary SA rock band, Just Jinger, delivers a world-class solo acoustic performance every time he visits our little stage.

Armed with some amazing songs & a dynamic stage presence, Ard had this to say about his experience of performing at cafe Roux many times over the years…..

“Cafe Roux is one of the very few live venues in South Africa that ‘gets it’. To them, as it should be to every other venue, the music and the artists come first. Great respect is shown when an artist performs on the night and it starts with a simple sign on each table saying ‘Shhhh, let’s listen to the music…’ Thank you for setting the bar so high when it comes to the simple art of music appreciation. Last time I played there I probably experienced my most sincere standing ovation of my career to date. It really is an honour to play at this venue”

Tasked with putting together an ACDC tribute for Hillcrest Quarry’s annual Tribute Fest, Riaan Steyn (drums) and Neil Lombard (rhythm guitar) assembled a bunch of their close musician friends and family, Lance Paul Jackson (vocals), Ian Smit (lead Guitar) and David Adamson (bass).

They spent the next 6 months in a rehearsal room fastidiously studying the finest nuances of AC/DC’s live performance and emerged victorious after their stellar closing performance at the 2016 Tribute Fest.

“The intention had always been to play just that one year end show but after having so much fun learning these songs and playing them that night in December, we decided to carry on gigging the show from early 2017” says Steyn.
Having now extended the show to a full 90 minutes of ACDC’s Greatest Hits and notched up a couple of very successful gigs along the way, including a sold out first time performance at Durbanville’s legendary Die Boer, expect to hear and see one of the few Cape Town bands that have managed to mimic these iconic rockers with such authenticity.

Jono Tait
========

Jono Tait was born in Cape Town and took to playing music as soon as he started school. Starting out in the choir and taking piano lessons, he branched out into trombone in high school. At the age of 15, he decided to pick up guitar and has not looked back since.

Jono first and foremost established himself as an acoustic player and songwriter before picking up an electric and giving that a real chance at the age of 19. His first bands were acoustic and harmony driven, notably The Hedges and For Folk Sake.

In 2013, Hatchetman came together, an acoustic, folk rock trio built around an incredibe three part harmony blend. The band came second in the Barleycorn songwriting competition in 2014. An
incredible opportunity was afforded the band of appearing at the CT Folk and Acoustic Fest held at the Baxter in 2014 and are booked to play the same fest at Kirstenbosch in 2015. Since then, the band has gone from strength to strength, winning a Silver Ovation Award at the Grahamstown National Arts Fest, playing two sets at Up The Creek 2016 and being personally invited by the owner of Strab 2016 to appear at the fest.

Later in that same year(2013), Jono was gifted the incredible opportunity of filling the late, great Allan Faull’s shoes as lead guitarist in seminal and pioneering Cape Town Alternative Rock Band, Falling Mirror. While the project may not have panned out quite as anticipated, he did gain the experience of playing to a crowd of 5000+ alongside Freshlyground at the De Waal Park Concerts in the Park.

Jono dedicated a year and a half to hard rocking Pretoria local, Aidan Martin in his band when Aidan moved to Cape Town to pursue his music career.

On a totally different note, Jono was the musical director, musician and actor in a highly acclaimed musical comedy, Fergus of Galloway, written by Alexander McCall Smith, author of the Nr 1 Ladies Detective Agency. The play was selected to be in the Cape Town Fringe Festival in 2014 and was rated one of the picks of the fest.

Later that year, Jono was personally asked by Concerts in the Park owner, Charles Lindsay-Bowman to appear with MARK HAZE in December 2014.

Jono’s musical tendencies are strongly aligned with the music that was often blaring in his family home while growing up. His father, Richard, was a musician and can take all the credit for introducing Jono to many of the classics including The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Beatles, Leonard Cohen and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Subsequent forays into finding his own style has lead Jono to bands such as Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age, Muse, Them Crooked Vultures, Cream – Band and Eric Clapton amongst many others.

HER BLUES

This is a show for all those who love the blues!!

With Luna Paige, Simon Orange, Kevin Gibson, Shaun Johannes and more… The musical director of this show is Simon Orange.

Luna Paige is known as one of SA’s strongest female vocalists. This is her first full blown blues show and she is excited to perform songs by female artists who have inspired her as a performer. She will be accompanied by the accomplished musicians Simon Orange on keys, Kevin Gibson on drums, Shaun Johannes on bass and more. Don’t miss this celebration of good music and blues by some of Western Cape’s top musicians and an amazing South African songstress.

Luna Paige performs famous songs and shares anecdotes and history about the women in blues who sang them (20’s till current times).

Luna will take the audience on a journey from early gospel blues, into the raunchy bars where naughty blues was prevalent. Songs like “Don’t you feel my leg” by Blu Lu Baker and “If I can’t sell it!” by Ruth Brown comes to mind.

Famous Blues tunes by singers such as Etta James, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald can be expected, celebrating the introduction of female lead singers into big bands in the 50’s. Then Luna and the band will take blues lovers into the 60s’ where social and political activists such as Nina Simone made an impact on the blues and jazz scenes and started singing about social issues such as racial and sexual inequality. This era is followed up by the introduction of rock and roll and modern blues, with Luna performing songs by legendary singers such as Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Bonnie Raitt and Tracy Chapman.

What will become evident during the course of this show is the universal theme that trails through these female singers’ music since the 20’s and how these blues and predominantly African-American women, used their music to make social commentary, to  break rules, to promote feminism and to rebel against societal constructs that oppress minorities. Many of these women dropped out of the music scene for decades, to resurface and make come backs after the introduction of the rock and roll era. Some became nurses, housewives, activists while a few shared a less fortunate and tragic fate. Either way. These women had a lot to say and they made damn sure they said it.

They first used the skiffle line-up to advertise the legendary “Smokehouse” nightclub in Cape Town in the nineties, and later on the street at the Grahamstown Arts Festival, and it proved so popular that they’ve permanently included it in their live show.

MORE ABOUT MONARK

Home to some of South Africa’s most renowned legendary bands, Potchefstroom delivered their latest offering to the South African music scene – Monark – in May 2013 when the four piece pop rock band emerged with their first single, Smiling.

The band was formed when producer Ewald Jansen van Rensburg teamed up with friend and vocalist, Eugene Coetzer. For a couple of years they patiently developed and worked towards finding the specific sound they were after. Once they had discovered it, they gathered together the musicians that were needed to grow and perform the music, with Deon de Klerk joining the band on bass guitar and Graeme Wuth on drums. The band officially formed in August 2012, intent on making popular, yet tastefully engineered music with a cinematic feel.

With Eugene unmistakably unique voice and soaring falsetto, Smiling immediately gained mainstream attention and popularity on major radio stations throughout South Africa. It peaked at No. 3 on 5FM Top 40 Chart and was a Top 20 hit on Highveld and KFM. The video also reached No. 1 on MK’s Top 10 Chart.

December 2013 saw the release of Monark second single and music video, entitled Build It Up. The single soon followed in the footsteps of Smiling success and charted on radio nationwide. It reached the Top 5 on 5FM’s Top 40 Chart, No. 2 on East Coast Radio and became the band’s first No. 1 single, topping the Jacaranda FM Top 20 Chart, KFM and Highveld’s Kia Take 40 SA Chart as well as reaching No. 1 on Algoa FM.  The band’s follow up songs – Something and You Make also did well through the end of 2014 into 2015, with a new single called Hush being released half way through last year to massive success across all radio stations, achieving Top 5 status in charts across the country and becoming a firm favorite at the live shows.

Monark achieved industry recognition winning the MK 2014 Award for Best Newcomer, along with being chosen as one of the selections in iTunes exclusive ‘New Artist in 2014 campaign. At the 2015 SAMA (South African Music Awards), the band were nominated for Best Pop Album, as well as Record of the Year, along with a nomination for Ewald Jansen van Rensburg for Best Producer for the NEGATIVES album. In 2016, the band released a deluxe edition of their debut album which includes their latest singles Hush and the songs currently charting on SA airwaves, Falling and Soldier, as well as a couple of other new tracks and remixes.

Flying Bantu is an Afro-Fusion band from Victoria Falls Zimbabwe. After a lengthy creative process at the beginning of 2016 under the magical spray of the Victoria Falls, the band is eager to express its warm Jazzy sound, with a distinct traditional Zimbabwean signature. The band’s unique sound also embodies flavours of rock, reggae, funk and jazz. Comprised of five members that include a drummer (Sam), a guitarist (Amkela), a keyboardist (Phathisani), bass guitarist (Bongani), and lead vocalist (Nash), together the five exude energy and Southern African flavor as they sing about being human, being African, and everything in between; both beautifying and challenging humanity’s complex existence.
Together they have played with enough bands to make up an evening’s line up at a small festival, and it is this experience, ranging from big stage gigs to private corporate functions, that has led to this alchemic grouping which effortlessly gives “Flying Bantu” their unique, earthy sound.
“Our hope is that we are a product whose reach transcends the borders set by culture, race, religion and even genre in a grand quest for a togetherness amongst citizens of the world”.

Laurie Levine 1

BOOK NOW

Singer songwriter Laurie Levine is best known for her fresh blend of Americana and folk music. The release of her new solo record, ‘Canyons’, brings with it a whole new sound and outlook. She has moved away from the acoustic terrain of country and folk into a lush world of electric guitars, beats, synths and spacious reverbs. ‘Canyons’ delves deep into the recesses of longing and nostalgia, with a burning hope as the undercurrent that gently washes through the record. Dark at times, introspective and pierced with a sublime beauty, the songs reverberate and shimmer with otherworldly elegance and intelligence. While some songs are intoxicating with ominous lyrics and black staccato beats, others glow with optimism and a rich lyricism that is bought home by the intimacy of Levine’s vocal delivery. Catch Laurie unveiling her new sound with a full band at her album launch.
