Riaad Moosa (The Comedy Doctor)

Riaad 2

BOOK NOW

Riaad Moosa is one of South Africa’s most popular, award-winning and innovative comedians; and happens to be a qualified medical doctor as well! Recently, Riaad has also flexed his comedic and dramatic acting muscles, playing the lead in the movie “Material”, which is currently inspiring audiences all over South Africa. On stage, he conquers new fans on an almost daily basis with sold-out one-man shows such as “Strictly Halaal” and “Riaad Moosa For The Baracka.” Both shows prompted extended runs, as well as special shows being created to accommodate the huge public demand. Both shows were also released on DVD. Riaad has appeared in various TV and film productions, such as “Laugh Out Loud” (SA’s largest standup comedy show in TV history); Riaad was also a writer and performer for SABC 1’s “Pure Monate Show” – which achieved cult status amongst South Africa’s youth. He also featured in the Anant Singh/John Vlismas produced comedy-collective feature film “Outrageous”, which was released at cinemas nationwide towards the end of 2009. Along with SA’s other top comedians – including Trevor Noah, David Kau, John Vlismas, Tumi Morake and Marc Lottering – Riaad was one of the headline acts supporting international superstar Eddie Izzard for the 46664 “It’s No Joke” concert in February 2010. Riaad has since become a regular presenter of a segment entitled “The Second Opinion – with Dr Riaad Moosa” on the E news channel’s satirical news programme “Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola.” In March 2011, Riaad was awarded the “Comics Choice Award” at the “1st Annual South African Comic’s Choice Awards.”

Moosa, one of the country’s most popular and acclaimed funnymen with a style all his own, is known as “the Comedy Doctor”, and he certainly seems to have the remedy for the nation’s ills at the moment: a healthy dose of laughter, straight up – hold the aspirin.

BOOK NOW

Pink Floyd’s music, apart from one or two well-worn standards, is too complex and diverse to be easily recreated in a local context, so to set out to do so is quite audacious. A group of veteran Durban and Cape Town musicians with a reputation for audacity have taken up the gauntlet. The show has been causing a sensation, playing sold-out performances all over KZN, and is now coming to the fairest Cape. In The Flesh is a six-piece rock band, consisting of:

Keith Merrington – keyboards/vocals Neil Ford – bass Colin Eksteen – drums Steven Squier – guitar/vocals Ross Tapson – guitar/vocals Jess van der Merwe – Saxophone
The Show Must Go On

The show explores aspects of the Pink Floyd repertoire that haven’t been extensively covered, even by Pink Floyd themselves, so fans can expect to hear well-loved classics that they may
never have heard performed live before. The albums ‘Wish You Were Here’ and ‘Momentary Lapse of Reason’ inform the particular highlights of the evening.

Jimm Harrison Project

BOOK NOW

If you thought you have heard it all, you probably haven’t heard of the Jimm Harisson Project. Having released their first album titled Chapter One in March 2016, this group of musicians has gained momentum and is currently performing throughout South Africa. This Cape Town based band is sure to hit big stages and top the charts very soon.

The Jimm Harisson Project started off as a long term experiment combining several musical influences into an exciting collaboration. The Jimm Harisson Project was founded when Jimm Harisson was awarded a recording contract from BrightIdeasStudio.

Their first album was recorded in December 2014 and was finished early 2016. The band always emphasises perfection when it comes to their music and they pay extreme attention to detail when it comes to their performance.
The band started their album promotion with a faceless campaign where only music was used to promote their album launch.

The campaign incorporated the main themes of the first album, which was ‘masks’. “Masks hide our true identity, that’s why we’re revealing ours in order to motivate others to reveal theirs’”, Jimm Harisson Explains. The whole album tells the story of how Jimm Harrison Project revealed their own masks and through their music encourages others to reveal their own.

Louisa Steyn from Tygerburger writes “there is always something different to their shows”, so not only will their music take you on a majestical journey, their shows are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Introducing Sunset Sweatshop: Nicholas Forbes, Richard Dicks, Ian Heyns, Rossouw Wentzel, Victor Green

Photo by: Karen Bergh Photography

There’s a new kaleidoscope of creative criminals in town and they won’t only steal your ears but also your ability to stay still with their unique combination of killer keys, guitar coma-tomic riffs and bass and drums . These guys will get those dusty hips shaking again with their ‘bringing-sexy-back’ music.

Sunset Sweatshop is a five-piece indie, goema, reggae and even boeremusiek and marabi infused outfit all hailing from the northern suburbs of Cape Town and was formed in October 2016.

These new kids on the block are hitting the local scene up with their debut single ‘Move It’.

IMG-20170214-WA0019.jpg

Stream ‘Move It’ on: Soundcloud

‘Move It’ is the kind of track that reminds us why the world fell in love with SA music legends from the eighties such as Bright Blue, Tananas and Void in a time when music was the vehicle used to bring about change and the rebirth of a nation. Sunset Sweatshop possesses the kind of sound that makes you proud to be part of a place so rich and plentiful in musical culture.

Each member of Sunset Sweatshop consisting of Ian Heyns (Lead Vocals and Acoustic Guitar), Rossouw Wentzel (Lead & Rhythm Guitar), Victor Green (Drums), Nick Forbes (Keys and Guitar) and Richard Dicks (Bass Guitar), is equally talented in their instrument of choice. Everyone is constantly busy eating, breathing and living the magic that is music and letting it bleed through their fingers to create a sound and feel that is synonymous with the vibrant tastes and flavours of South Africa.

All the members have been active in the music scene, except for Ian (frontman) who is making his onstage debut, following years of operating behind the scenes as an exceptional songwriter. It’s certainly not an easy effort for those wishing to classify, label and box the group’s sound. They feed off a wide spectrum of influences and at the end of the day they have been able to create something with real authentic artistic flair.

The music created by this tenacious troupe has true grit, meaningful lyrics and  ‘move-it’ melodies; so catchy you’ll be humming it non-stop.

Their history is still to be written but this will be a book worth reading as they continue to roll with the punches and produce awesome tunes. Sit tight and enjoy this melodious ride!

Her impassioned delivery lights the way through the dramatic song terrain and she will undoubtedly draw you in. Her rare and masterful guitar hooks combined with her intentional story telling is altogether extraordinary.

Live, the band promise to offer a sonic passage to a landscape of hope, determination, grace and inspiration. The songs are rhythmic, melodic anthems, plumbing the depths of life, love, opportunity and release.

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.

Cafe Roux Quiz Night

Wildfires are a part of life in the Western Cape and every fire season, agencies in the Cape Peninsula, the Overberg, the Cape Winelands and as far afield as the Cedarberg respond to thousands of fires, stretching resources to the limit.

The Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS), a group of some 250 volunteer wildland firefighters, deploy from four fire bases – Newlands, Jonkershoek, South Peninsula and Grabouw – to provide much-needed support to the likes of CapeNature, Table Mountain National Park, Overberg District Municipality and Winelands District Municipality, fighting some of the most destructive wildfires Cape Town and the Western Cape have experienced.

With the exception of a full-time employed general manager, the VWS is staffed, run and managed by committed people who all have day jobs. Many of the VWS’ deployments are at night, providing welcome relief for day-time fire crews, but once a VWS crew comes off the line, it’s back to base, home for a shower and maybe an hour or so of sleep, before heading for a full day at work or in the lecture hall.

For the VWS to do its work, it needs money, which makes fund-raising a critical focus when its members are off the line. A registered non-profit organisation, the VWS relies on the support of the communities it serves, to be able to do what it does best: fight wildland fires.

The VWS South Peninsula fire base is setting up shop right here in Noordhoek, and Cafe Roux wants to help by hosting a quiz evening, the proceeds of which will be donated to the VWS to help fund setup and operational costs at the new base.

Join us for an evening of great Cafe Roux food, fun and entertainment, interspersed with the intriguing tale of how the VWS came into being, and an engaging general knowledge quiz during which you can impress your friends and family, while making a meaningful contribution to a vital community organisation. Great food, great fun, great cause. See you there.
