Keep the Change, 4 seasoned songsmiths, a few weeks of collaborating and rehearsal, 20 great original songs (and a smattering of blues covers), 1 magical venue, and 4 voices in harmony make Cafè Roux the place to be on September 24th.
Bluesy. Funky. Folky. Groovy! Very much about the songs – ‘specially the vocals ….and all about the groove.
This writing collaboration started back in the day in Jozi and was coined Keep the Change, initiated by Jonny Blundell and Kathy Raven (who show-cased this creative initiative in shows supporting, amongst others, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Shawn Phillips. During the 90’s the band had a number of songs in the 5FM top 20 and were known particularly for their creative and precise vocal harmonies. Now it is given new breath with the collaboration of Ian Cohen (ex Bright Blue) and Tonia Selley (the Pressure Cookies)
