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”
