BOOK NOW

They’re back! Last time they played Cafe Roux The Blue Jets rocked the house with their fun, funky blues rock show.
SAMA award winning Tony Shine’s soulful but powerful voice rises from the melodies and you can sense the connection with guitarist Keith Beckett,  as the un rehearsed improvisation blends  together magically. The quiet and unassuming Juerg Thuli changes character the instant he sits behind the drums, feverishly holding the rhythm tight while his arms blur with some really wonderfully crafted technical beats. No introduction needed for Mr. Derek Harper Jr one of the finest harmonica players your will see, who has played with most of the leading musicians in SA. They have been polishing some new original numbers to add to their set of interesting takes on some obscure rhythm and blues numbers. “We’re looking forward to the reaction from the audience when we play our new numbers as they don’t fit the typical blues sound” says Tony Shine. “We just let the song write itself, it’s not contrived. There’s a little British Indie, a little Reggae, it’s all very interesting” Get your tickets and get ready to be entertained.
**PLEASE NOTE: DINNER FROM 6.30/7PM. SHOW AT 8.30PM

TRACK CREATED IN A BATHTUB BROKE SAFFA ARTIST IN LONDON

It has been South African artist, ANNA WOLF’s dream to work with producer Pete Boxta Martin and songwriter Dantae Johnson ever since she landed in London!

Boxta Martin is a multi-award winning and Oscar-shortlisted London-based producer that has written, produced and remixed for a variety of top-selling artist such as James Arthur, Arrow Benjamin, Jesse J, Mali Music, Missy Elliot, Rizzle Kicks, Sugababes, to name a few. Dantae Johnson is Boxta Martin’s mega talented business partner and is signed to Sony ATV in the United Kingdom.

Wolf knew someone, who knew someone, who knew someone, who knew Boxta Martin and Johnson. The only way to get their attention, was to write a hit song with a fresh sound.

Wolf, previously known as Tailor, went through her thousand-plus demos and relived the nostalgia of all her growing pains as an artist until one night she wrote a song that she believed would speak through “a Boxta Martin and Johnson’s produced lens” to millions.

She took her guitar and went to the bathtub, recorded herself on her cell phone and performed the song by stumping her feet against the tub to create a sound that is still used in the final mix.

She sent the song to Boxta Martin and Johnson who summoned her to the iconic Matrix Recording Studios (Adele, Lana Del Rey) where they recorded her new single, BELIEVER!   

Boxta Martin and Johnson offered ANNA WOLF an artist development deal under their company The Three Bears Entertianment and is busy recording a full E.P. with her in studio.

The now London-based ANNA WOLF wants to share her journey of discovery with her TAILOR BECOMING ANNA WOLF South African Tour.

She will land in South Africa in November and plan to do an imtimate string of performances where her hypnotic stage pressence will captivate the imaginations of those who dare to follow their dreams.

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

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.
