Ben Dey & The Concrete Lions

July 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
cafe Roux, Cape Town



Ben Dey and The Concrete Lions is an afro/indie pop rock band from Cape Town. With their frst single “Easy Love” recently charting at #1 on the 5fm Top 10 at 10 Rock Chart and being play-listed on Johannesburg’s biggest commercial radio station, 94.7, these guys are not wasting time finding their spot in the local music scene. With a fusion of local and international sounds, this dynamic act has heads turning at a rapidly growing rate – 2016 saw them feature on numerous festival stages including Rocking the Daisies, White Mountain Festival, Park Acoustics, Stellenbosch Craft Beerfest and Smoking Dragon Festival. The band ended last year on a high note touring the SA coast with The Parlotones as well as performing their first shows in the UK.

Ben Dey is a prolifc lyricist. His memorable hooks are held together by poetic verses that use commercial metaphors to express subversive socio, political and environmental themes. Ongama Mona is a force of nature – music and soul flow through him. His versatility as a guitarist and vocalist is awe-inspiring. Over the past 10 years Ongama has worked locally and abroad with some of the country’s top musicians. They are joined by brothers Dillon and Alex Birns. Alex and Ben started their frst band when they were 14 years old. Given their long friendship and history, Alex and Dillon was a natural fit to Ben and Ongama’s new project.

With a vision of uplifting and inspiring their audiences, BDCL are set to take South Africa by storm.
