The Black Cat Bones – Biography

The Black Cat Bones is a South African blues/rock band formed in Pretoria in 2007. The group consists of members Kobus de Kock jr (vocals) and Andre Kriel (guitars) with Chris vd Walt (bass), Gareth Bunge (Drums) and is considered to be one of the current top performing acts in South Africa.

Both their debut album ‘Silverton Swamp Songs’ (2009), and the critically acclaimed second helping ‘The Long Drive’ (2011) were heavily influenced by Kobus and Andre’s blues roots but, in 2013, the band released their third (SAMA nominated) studio album ‘Beatipliller’ which showcased their collective influences as a diverse 4-piece rock act. In the same year the band also won the MK Award for ‘Best Live Act’ and emerged from being underground sub-culture champions to a group that is adored nationwide by a constantly expanding, and ever-loyal following from all walks of life.

BOOK NOW

One of the most acclaimed and successful bands to emerge from South Africa in recent years, Freshlyground blends the infectious kwela style and musical traditions from Zimbabwe and Mozambique with elements of pop, jazz, blues and indie rock. Formed in Cape Town the band became a national hit with the release of their 2003 debut, Jika Jika, and a year later they found themselves performing for South African President Mbeki and sharing the stage with the legendary Miriam Makeba at the North Sea Jazz Festival. Over the ensuing years, Freshlyground toured the world and recorded six increasingly popular albums, culminating in a collaboration with pop superstar Shakira that was chosen as the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. They performed the song during the closing ceremony in a televised event that was broadcast to over a billion people. On a visit to South Africa in June 2013 during a speech at the University of Cape Town, President Barack Obama cited Freshlyground as an example of the contributions South Africa has made to the world. They truly represent the fresh new face of African music.

“This is the sound of striving, from people who don’t want to lose their past but at the same time want desperately to move ahead and find their place in the global mainstream. “-National Public Radio

“The band is a true reflection of contemporary South Africa. “—Afropop Worldwide

CLICK HERE TO BOOK NOW

For founding member, lead vocalist, songwriter and guitarist Cito (Martin Otto), music is his life. He has been involved in the music industry since he was seventeen and wouldn’t change it for the world. “When I’m not on stage or in studio, music continues to pulse through my heart. I love the role that music plays in this bizarre existence. Music has the power to make or break you,” he says. As for finding inspiration, he never runs short: “Sometimes it’s a groove that I hear in my head, other times it’ll be a line that someone has said, that just sticks and demands to be elaborated. It’s also wonderful to collaborate and when Martin sits in with me, we come up with the craziest ideas. Playing on new or other instruments also inspires me.” Cito is currently working on a number of side projects – one of which is his debut solo album – and does music direction and sound design for corporate and special events.

Martin Schofield, founding member, lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist, is a British born and African raised lover of dogs, guitars, travel, tattoos, bacon and 50’s culture. Having worked in the industry since the age of sixteen, he has a long list of career highlights, but cites “being in WONDERboom with my brothers and paying the bills from music” as his personal best. Musically, Billy Duffy, John Squire, John Fruciante and Brian Setzer have had the biggest influence on his style. Martin is currently working on several side projects with Cito. He also does studio/session work and deals in vintage and used musical instruments.

Bassist Wade Williams has also been with the band from the very beginning. He has loved music from a very young age and, while his style is akin to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea “because of my funky rock white boy thing”, it was George Michael’s special combination of production and emotion that got it all started for Wade. To him, playing live is an incredible privilege. “There are few better experiences than playing a show where you feel completely connected, as a band and with the audience. That’s what I live for.”

Drummer Jonathan Bell – who is also a qualified attorney – grew up in a musical family and has wanted to be a drummer for as long as he can remember. He started playing at the age of twelve and hasn’t stopped since. He enjoys all kinds of music, from the Beatles to Elton John, and everything in between. While he lists playing Oppikoppi 2014 in front of a massive crowd and winning gold at the Silk Road Indie Music Festival in China as career highlights, he believes the best is yet to come.

WONDERboom is undeniably one of South Africa’s greatest musical success stories, and their latest offerings – from Praying Mantis to The Best Side Story Tour – is set to continue to cement their place as local rock legends.

BOOK NOW

Born on 25 October 1982 in Cape Town, South Africa, Larry Soffer always dreamed of becoming an international star in the fascinating realm of magic and mentalism. Inspired by the artistry, charisma and showmanship of David Copperfield, Larry, only 13 years of age,enrolled at the College of Magic in Cape Town. Four years later, he graduated with a Silver Medallion, the highest accolade bestowed by the College.

He began performing at corporate and private events, while garnering several National and Provincial Championships. Such were his talents that world famous Las Vegas Magicians, Siegfried and Roy awarded him the SARMOTI (Siegfried and Roy Masters of the Impossible) Grant – a bursary for his final year of study at the College of Magic.

After graduation, Larry took interest in Mentalism – acts of mind-reading, metal bending and telekinesis – studying it in his spare time. Soon, he began showcasing his skills on television and radio – making spoons and forks bend across these platforms effecting people in their homes, including fixing broken watches, making light bulbs burst, making TV’s switch on In 2006, Larry was invited to the world-renowned Magic Castle in Hollywood, the members of which are only the most prestigious magicians in the world. He went on to become the youngest South African to ever perform there and the only to ever be awarded membership at that time.

Larry is an extremely popular live show and corporate event performer, inspiring his audience to ‘Believe To See’ instead of ‘Seeing to Believe.’ In so doing, he truly opens their minds to new possibilities by believing in the impossible and thereby creating their own dreams.

Today, Larry Soffer is the most influential name in magic across South Africa and he is fast earning an exceptional name abroad as his brand continues to grow from strength to strength. This high-in- demand magician and mentalist has performed for the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, the Prince of Saudi Arabia, Prince Harry, Michael Johnson, Hootie and The Blow Fish, Luke Perry, Andy Macdowell, Ruby Wax, Mike and the Mechanics, Vinnie Jones, former SA President F.W.de Klerk, SA Finance Minister Trevor Manuel, the SA Cricket and Rugby teams, PJ Powers, Zuraida Jardine, DJ Fresh, Lee-Anne Liebenberg and more.

Koos Kombuis

BOOK NOW

Koos Kombuis (born André le Roux du Toit, November 5, 1954) is a South African musician, singer, songwriter and author who became famous as part of a group of antiestablishment maverick Afrikaans musicians, who, under the collective name of Voëlvry (“voëlvry” is synonymous to the word “fugitive”), toured campuses across South Africa in the 1980’s, to “liberate Afrikaans from the shackles of its past”. Fellow musicians of this movement were Johannes Kerkorrel (Ralph Rabie) and Bernoldus Niemand (James Phillips).

They were a younger generation Afrikaner who didn’t believe in apartheid and didn’t toe the ruling National Party line.  Kombuis is somewhat of an icon among South Africans, who consider him the father of non-conformist Afrikaans culture.

He cites Bob Dylan, Neil Young as well as ex-Beatles George Harrison and John Lennon as musical influences. His musical style is folky and raw.  Kombuis often accompanies himself only with his acoustic guitar, but sometimes uses a backing rock band with world-renown musicians Schalk Joubert, Albert Frost and Kevin Gibson. He has also performed with musicians such as Stef Bos, Vusi Mahlasela, Rocco de Villiers, Syd Kitchen, Louis Mhlanga, Amanda Strydom, Laurika Rauch, and many more.

Koos Kombuis is considered one of the best lyricists in South African music. One of his most popular hits is “Lisa se Klavier”, which has been covered by Laurika Rauch and The Parlotones and translated into Dutch, Portuguese and English. He has collaborated with the Belgian artist Stef Bos on two albums and Stef has recorded Koos’ song “Onder in My Whiskeyglas”.

Koos is also known as an author and columnist for several South African publications. He is known for his sharp satirical style, never to waiver from tackling even the holiest of holy cows and the ability to bring his readers from fits of hysterical giggles to the brink of tears. He has published several novellas, an autobiography, memoires of the Voëlvry Movement, volumes of poetry, short stories and compilations of his columns.

“The Fractals journey really started when I met Ray Adam Morgan. He was drumming for a band called Early Hours at the Brass Bell Restaurant & Bikini Bar in Kalk Bay, and I was helping a friend do sound. We connected straight away, and I still remember driving to Rosebank for the first time and unbeknownst to me I had to get a drum kit in my car. Since then we’ve helped each other grow, and we’ve become best of friends. Ray then introduced me to Stephen de Souza, who I also connected with straight away. People that get along well know that they get along well almost immediately. We bonded over our comments and remarks about Ray’s small nips. Liam Mcdermott is one of my longest standing friends, I have known him since the beginning of high school, and we’ve shared many memories together. He has grown into such an amazing musician and lead guitar player over the past 6 months, that it is truly an honour to have him as part of the band. We all get along really well, so it has worked out so perfectly.” – Jonathan Simons

Desmond and The Tutus

 

 

 

 

 

BOOK NOW

Desmond & The Tutus have been scare-crowing across the world’s stages with their unique, some might call it niche, brand of kwela-indie-punk for just on ten years. But to call it niche would be entirely missing the point, the Tutus are more shape-shifters than niche, their sound slotting comfortably between Thandiswe Mazwai and Hugh Masekela, as it did at the Soweto Heritage Fest in 2013, or between surf rocker’s Beach Party and synth mavens Gateway Drugs during the Puma Happy Holiday in summer 13/14.

The Tutus’ have also toured extensively internationally, opening on their 2009 UK tour for The Vivian Girls, The Soft Pack and Women. They played at one of the last, and legendary Optimo parties at The Sub Club in Glasgow and somehow managed to sell out their first European headliner at Vanner och Bekanta in Stockholm. They’ve also played among Johnny Clegg, The Mahotella Queens, and Blk Jks at the South African themed Rio Loco in Toulouse, France in 2010. As an intern trying to put together a blurb on deadline you could probably just say something like “Desmond & The Tutus have sold out shows all over the globe, including Japan, France, Sweden and the UK”, I mean if you don’t want to go into the whole how-do-I-trim-that-mass-of-info-down panic.

Anyway.

Closer to home, or rather right at home, the Desmonds have played for deaf people at Joburg’s Bassline, where there was a vibrating dancefloor and interpretive dancer and, according to Craig, “a deaf person who stole my bag that night.” Let’s not get into that. Early in 2014 they performed at Kirstenbosch to a bunch of young people who were about 5 years old when the band was formed. That’s scary. Desmond & The Tutus are kak old. They remind a lot of people about that one time in first year. But that didn’t stop Shane from leaping off the stage a couple of years ago at the I Love Soweto Party at Orlando Bowls Club and participating in some kind of weird dance off. That’s just how they roll.

Forming in 2005, it took until 2008 for Shane, Nick, Craig and Doug to get their act together and release their debut album Tuckshop, which was loved for it’s home record vibe more than it was a commercial success. Around this time they also had two releases on Japanese labels, Flake Records and Every Conversation.

Shortly after this they released an EP entitled & The. In 2008 Parisian label, Tigersushi released a 12” of Kiss You On the Cheek.

In 2012 the band worked with Los Angeles­ based producer, Eric Broucek, and their 2nd full­length album entitled MNUSIC was released in July of 2012. The first three singles from the album all charted on the 5FM Top 40. Most notably, the 2nd single Zim Zala Bim reached No. 1 on the 5FM Top 40.

Desmond & The Tutus basically have not done too badly in ten years. This you, as an intern, or even editor, on a deadline, should take note of. It’s notable. People LIKE this band, whether it’s because their music is cheeky and infectious and jangly (but not too jangly) or it’s because they spin around the stage as if their limbs are coming off, yowling like Big Foot in the Canadian wilderness, or because they like to dress up at Halloween and are pretty serious about their costumes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, yes they did that. Four Ali G’s. Check. The Parlotones. Check.

People who like them have also said very nice things about them. Here are some of those things:

“A band with a personality larger than life” – indiedoesit.co.za

“A distinctively South African sound” – SA Promo magazine

“handmade-with-love “kwela punk”” – Mahala

“the best party I’d had in ages” – JHB Live

There are very few bands in this country that have the ability to make a crowd get up and dance. If I were to evaluate this list, I am without doubt that Desmond And The Tutus would come out tops. – indiedoesit.co.za (again, these guys love the Desmonds)

“F****** amazing! I danced my face off from start to finish. I was dripping in my own sweat and during the course of the show I even tasted the sweat of others as it flew off the tips of their hair as they threw their heads around in delight.” – Whizz Kid Radio Beta 2013
“This is an epic party song, right in line with the legacy that Desmond plans to leave behind on this planet. This song, played live to the loyal Desmond-Durban crowd, will induce spontaneous peeing everywhere.” – zero31.co.za

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 acoustic performance with a all new band!

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”

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. Their energetic and polished live performances have been incredibly well received by their fans, with Monark performing on some of the top stages in the country.

Majozi is a proudly South African musician who has recently emerged onto the scene from the coastal city of Durban.
At the age of thirteen, he started to teach himself guitar, which eventually led to him studying a foundation course in jazz and popular
music at the University of KwaZulu Natal.
He describes his music as being Indie-folk with subtle influences of electro and attributes his faith as one of his musical inspirations.
