August 8, 2016 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

For the past nine years, multi-talented musician and master guitarist Mel Botes, has tantalized audiences all over the country with his critically acclaimed musical performances in two Pink Floyd tribute shows, Crazy Diamond and Dark Side of the Moon and later his tribute to Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing.

Audiences and critics agreed that he mastered the complexity and density of the music in both the tribute shows in a way that none of the other tribute shows have achieved. Now, by popular demand, he is presenting the next chapter in his tribute to Dire Straits series named, “Private Investigations”. Featuring the same pinpoint accuracy in his playing, the same delightful Botes touch, and authenticity he gives everything audiences have come to expect from the virtuoso.

He is currently the new owner of the original Barnyard in Plettenberg Bay which he will use to occasionally stage his own original works – David’s Confession, Flight of Bird etc. The David’s Confession, About Time (1998) album will be re-released with the story in book form later this year. People still enquire about this magical album. It was considered one of the cornerstones in South African Rock music.
