Céline believes that to be successful in the music industry today, it is necessary to have a unique sound to her music. She believes she has this with her fusion style of her original works as well as her unique tone of her voice.

Mazula consits of Husband and wife Vusa and Zoe Mazula. We have been involved in music for many years and this has included being owners of one of South Africa’s top live music venues, Zula Sound Bar. Our true passion however is creating and performing our own music, infusing it with love and sharing it with as many people as possible. It would be our deepest pleasure for you to be among the people to enjoy our musical meanderings.

The music can kind of be described as melodious funky , Afro-folk, but then asking a musician to describe their music is like asking a bear to explain why it likes rabbits. We believe it is music for the soul and we enjoy the process so much, that taking people with us on the journey, is only the biggest pleasure.

Music is the most powerful medium that connects humans to emotions. It can capture infinity with it’s messages and it’s sheer beauty can take you to realms that are accessible only to you as an individual.

Slide guitar, harmonica, African blues guitar stylings and soul vocals all feature in the fresh roots sound of Robin Auld. Well known to SA audiences from hits like “All of Woman” and “Baby you been good”, his music over the years has evolved from the poprock sound of his early recordings to the contemporary mix of blues and roots that makes his sound today. Based in Cape Town, he has performed and recorded in New York, London, California, Glasgow and Nashville.

Born in Lusaka, Zambia to Scots parents, Robin’s childhood was spent alternating between Southern Africa and Scotland; a journey reflected in the African and Celtic influences in his music. He learned to play the guitar by listening to Hendrix, Ry Cooder and Neil Young, also absorbing influences from the various guitarists of Southern Africa.

For solo acoustic shows he uses a loop pedal plus stompboard to play a mixture of his songs both old and new, along with interpretations of songs by other classic artists such as Hendrix and Dylan. A show designed to uplift and enthuse!

Blues Broers at Cafe Roux Noordhoek Farm Village on Saturday the 6th October

After dusting off their instruments following a surprise appearance at the Up the Creek festival last month, the Blues Broers head to Cape Town to perform at a new affiliate of one of their favourite venues, Cafe Roux. The full band will be attending, marking the second year since Basson Laubscher took over the guitar chair from Albert Frost. Jorik Pienaar will be joining longstanding members Rob ‘Big Bob’ Nagel and Simon Orange on drums and percussion.

A regular feature of the Blues Broers’s show is the ‘Skiffle set’. Skiffle is a form of blues that is played on home-made or improvised instruments and the band use a tea-chest bass, a washboard, a harmonica or Kazoo and a resonator guitar to re-create the sound of the 1950’s.

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.

“Magic vs Mentalism” starring Marcel Oudejans & Brendon Peel
Oct 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

magic 1

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. He has also performed all South Africa in theatre festivals, as well being booked for large corporate events. In 2017, Peel won the South African Theatre Magazine “Performer of the Year” award.

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.

Nik Rabinowitz

BOOK NOW

Nik Rabinowitz has recently recovered from his early-onset midlife crisis, just in time for Cape Town to become the world’s first city to run out of water. Run out! Imagine! Running out of milk – sure! Eggs – definitely! But water – what!? At least we’re first at something?

In his new one-man show, Dry White, Nik explores the causes and its ramifications of Cape Town’s water crisis – which if you know anything about Cape Town, you may know are not the same for everyone. He looks at the bigger picture, but also the smaller picture – the details nobody has had time to consider. For example; should we really still be referring to it as The Cape of Storms? Just saying.

It’s important to note however, that Nik is addressing the water crisis because it’s a highly relevant subject at the moment, that he knows his audience wants to hear about. And he’s using it to reel you in, so that he can get into what he really wants to talk about – relationships.

When it comes to relationships with humans, Nik has had many, continues to pursue some, and lose others. Whether it’s his relationship with his very first girlfriend – who ended up being his last girlfriend (as a result of ultimately becoming his wife), or the girlfriends in-between, or his relationship with his children or an aunt or his dogwalker (you heard me) or his late father – it’s all connected to something larger. What is that something?

You’ll have to come to the show to find out. But keep your expectations low when it comes to getting real answers – remember, this is a comedy show, not a therapy session. Then again, from my experience in therapy, I’d say there might be more to gain from a comedy show.

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).

and tells a story that keeps even the most Jaded of souls Up and Rocking.
Jesse is a world class frontman with an exceptional voice and when he sings it’s all about the passion, the sweat and the words
He gets you to feel every sentence as he delivers an animated lesson in Rock God Vocals.

On the drums we have the mindblowingly good KEVIN GIBSON, one of SAs most respected and talented Drummers.
When he gets his groove on, everybody gets it on and it stays on long after the show. Mindblowing technique coupled with passion & emotion
result in a rhythmic performance that rivals even the great drummers of the 70s.  Don’t miss this master in superb Classic Rock action

Keeping it all together and holding the rest of the bend unified and with purpose is ROB STEMMETT on Bass.
As the Gatekeeper of the low frequencies he’s the glue that keeps the band on course for Tonal Nirvana.
He lays down the foundations that Classic Rock & Blues are built on.

Soul-searching lyrics and upbeat melodies blend together to give you Ruby June, the singer-songwriter who loves surprising audiences with the great command she has over both her voice and guitar. Able to play both gentle acoustic melodies and screaming rock solos, Ruby is no stranger to the Cape Town music scene. Having played various festivals and venues in and around the Western Cape with her band, she focuses on improving her craft, stage presence and energy with every show. She launched her debut EP to a sold-out crowd at Café Roux CT in October last year and has had her song “Dance With Me” playlisted on several South African radio stations. With influences ranging from Karen Zoid and Freshlyground, to Jack Johnson and Norah Jones, expect the unexpected from this young and talented lady.
