Over the course of the last decade and a half, well known singer and songwriter, Ard Matthews, has been honing his craft and moving people the world over. As the front man of South African band Just Jinjer, his indelible lyrics and melody arrangements led the way to the incredible success of their debut album title ‘All Comes Round’, becoming one of the biggest selling rock genre albums of all time in SA, achieving double platinum status in it’s first year, with the follow up album “Something for now” reaching the same status a year later.

Ard has performed at cafe Roux numerous times but his last performance was particularly special. Afterwards he had this to say” “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”

Come & see for yourself….
