MEL BOTES ON THE MOVE….

Taking centre stage in “Best of Both” is Mel Botes, undoubtedly respected as one of South Africa’s most talented guitarists and songwriters. He is also an established adult contemporary singer and producer and is known for his versatility, goodwill undertakings, as well as his own solo career.

Mel Botes has subtly been influenced by Pink Floyd, Sting, Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler, to name but a few, as well as other distinctive classical influences and he has an admiration for Vivaldi and Beethoven. His classical guitar training, supported by an interest in jazz, blues and celtic sounds, appears prominently in his work!

He has been entertaining audiences all over the country for numerous years with his critically acclaimed musical performance, “Crazy Diamond – A Tribute to Pink Floyd”. His brilliance as a guitar player has not limits in “Crazy Diamond” and music lovers are constantly swept off their feet. Audiences and critics agreed that he mastered the complexity and density of Floyd in a way that none of the other tribute shows have achieved.

In 2012 and 2013 he presented the next chapter in this remarkable series of stage productions with the long-awaited “Sultans of Swing – A Tribute to Dire Straits” and “Dark Side of the Moon – chapter 2” in his series of Pink Floyd tribute shows, featuring the same pinpoint accuracy in his playing and the same delightful Botes’ touch.

Best of Both”, a Storm Produktionz show, promises everything audiences have come to expect from the virtuoso and features the best of his PINK FLOYD & DIRE STRAITS’ repertoire – two of the most successful rock bands of all time.

Mel Botes’ genial talent cannot be described with words; it must be experienced. Go on, you are being challenged!

Just before legendary South African comedian, Barry Hilton, leaves the country to host the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival, he will thrill audiences on local soil at Café Roux in Noordhoek on 20 October 2018.

With a third outlet of his signature Nou Gaan Ons Braai clothing range having just opened its doors, launching a family fun card game called SmartAsk and teaching business professionals the serious side of funny with his Talk Funny workshops, you might think Barry Hilton is taking some time off from his first love: stand-up comedy. You will also be very wrong.

Barry continues to enjoy one the most successful careers in SA stand-up history. He has been wowing audiences for a phenomenal 35 years! And is still criss-crossing this country and the world with his unique and larger-than-life approach to things we all have in common and a hilarious take on our quirks and differences.

Apart from being an absolute audience favourite, Barry is also known for his professionalism and dedication to good, clean comedy. These are just some of the reasons that saw him awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the South African Comics’ Choice Awards – voted for by his peers and colleagues in the industry.

He’s known for never going for the easy gags, cheap shots and lazy punch lines of dirty and vulgar comedy. If you’re lucky enough to remember one of the multitude of jokes that fly your way during one of his shows, you’ll be able to tell it to anybody from your boss to your gran.

This is comedy made up of one thing and one thing only: funny. No need for vulgarity, malice or personal attacks, but rather just a unique and entertaining view of the funny and fascinating aspects that make up a uniquely South African society – all presented in his trademark style that keeps an audience on the edge of their seats, constantly wanting more.

So make you sure you don’t’ miss this opportunity to see one of the very best comedians – in South Africa and the whole world – in action at Café Roux on 20 October.

Ross, Dale and Neil will be embarking on a national tour of difference they say, as the music is stripped down to its bare minimum getting to the root of the songs and their stories.

The reason for only having the three members and not the usual five is so that the band can get to play more intimate venues, fans will get to see the whites of their eyes as they lay down the music that has been apart of so many people’s lives and experiences.

BOOK NOW

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.

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”

When asked how he would describe Native Young –  South African producer and frontman of the project Yannick says, “It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”. Beginning as a home recording experiment for Yannick in 2015 – the live Native Young band hosts a menagerie of rotating talent in Africa and Europe. Yannick’s music itself is focused on melodic emotional storytelling, raw African rhythm and the fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments – a combination which has carved out a space that’s completely his own in the musical landscape both locally and abroad for this young independent artist.

2016 saw the live band taking their unique sound across the ocean to the streets of Berlin and performing opening slots at prestigious international festivals including Fusion festival in Germany, Les Escales in France and Lake of Stars in Malawi. The same year saw the release of Native Young’s first mini album ‘Kings’ – which subsequently won a prestigious SAMA (South African Music Award) for ‘Best Alternative Album’ in 2017. The band also opened for Australian superstars Angus & Julia Stone during their 2018 sold out tour of South Africa.

There are very few artists that can uplift and bring pure joy to listeners the way that Native Young can.Those who have seen the collective live have described the act as “The African answer to The Beatles” and their performances as a “Soul exploding journey of happiness, heartbreak and spirit”. Over the last year the Spotify listenership for Native Young in Europe has reached over 40 000 monthly listeners and Yannick is currently hard at work writing new material for the project – releasing a selection of new music in 2019. Music is that ephemeral expression that seems to connect us all and It’s this sentiment that boldly shines in the raw and colourful tale of Native Young.

1925Band is a South African folk group originating from Pretoria. The band consists of three brothers, namely David-Lee Gericke (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica), JeffreyGericke(vocals,piano,keyboard,cajón,tambourine)andRenoGericke(vocals,bassguitar).
Reno, the oldest of the three siblings, was part of a rock band called Point Xero. They had modest success and only produced a five track demo EP before they broke up. Jeffrey, the second oldest, competed in Idols South Africa 2002 and made the top 100. Thereafter he travelled Spain extensively as part of an Il Divo Heroe tribute band before returning to his homeland. David-Lee, the youngest, started his musical career at the age of fifteen as an acoustic guitarist and also learn to play the harmonica whilst writing his own music. In 2009 the three brothers collaborated for the firsttime togetherasRJD,an acoustic bandthatperformed only one show before the brokeup.
1925Band was officially formed on 27 February 2011 when Jeffrey and David-Lee collaborated again for the second time as an acoustic duo. At the time David-Lee was 19 years old and Jeffrey was 25 years old. Their ages formed the basis of the band’s name. It wasn’t long after before they convinced their older brother, Reno, to join them as a bass player in order to enhance their sound. As a three piece acoustic band, the brothers went from strength to strength with the copious amounts of emotion they pour into each of their songs. They were approached by several record labels who wanted to sign them but insisted they change their name. They decided to keep the name 1925Band when they discovered that the Afrikaans language, their native tongue, was recognized asan official language on 8May1925.
1925Band’s music is heavily influenced by Mumford & Sons and the Bee Gees as they perform an acoustic-rock pastiche of Afrikaans/ English songs, and have released two albums: Horizon (2014) and Eintlik Nogal Baie (2017). Horizon was released as a limited edition with only the one single Servette receiving radio play. But the album paved the way forward for them to get recognized as they wrote and recorded the theme song, Eintlik Nogal Baie, with acclaimed music producer Mauritz Lotz,for the feature filmofthe same name. The latter peaked at number one on SA Charts and a Spanish version was also recorded as part of the international distribution of the film. Their album Eintlik Nogal Baie also boasted three new singles, with the first Gedig Op Jou Arm, peaking at number two on SA Charts with AlTe Min Te Veel Gevra and Fynbos, both currently charting.

Catch them live on the 8th November in Noordhoek! A show you definitely should not miss!

Gimme Shelter – A Night of Rolling Stones Music

They are the world’s longest-running rock ‘n’ roll band and arguably one of the most influential bands of all time. This October, four of Cape Town’s top rock artists will pay homage to The Rolling Stones.

The musical spectacular Gimme Shelter: A Night of Rolling Stones Music will be presented by Jean ‘Tunes’ Marais, Wouter Reyneke, Jacques Groenewald and Piet Botha.

“The Rolling Stones have always been a part of our lives,” says Piet. “I started listening to them in 1964 and since then I have been a loyal fan, following their history, all the changes through the years and of course, their music…”

Stones followers can expect to hear all their favourites, like ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’, ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ and ‘Wild Horses’ and even a few they’ve never heard before.

“They blew my mind when I heard them in 1994, and I must have played that tape (back in the day we bought music on tape…) all day, every day,” says bassist Wouter Reyneke. To drummer Jean Marais, his first experience with ‘Gimme Shelter’ was one of ‘somewhat contentment in the ominous melody of the intro, rooted in the uneasiness we all sometimes have to face’.

Probably the biggest Stones fan in the group is guitarist Jacques Groenewald.

“The Stones were the first band to grab my attention at a very young age. Two guitar players complementing each other, or ‘the ancient form of weaving’, as Keith and Ronnie call it. In the end it’s all just rock ‘n’ roll… but I like it.”

There’s a little British Indie, a little Reggae, it’s all very interesting” Get your tickets and get ready to be entertained.

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.
