The years in between, playing weddings and bar-mitzvahs seems to have paid off. He might look like a beach-bum, but he sounds like Leadbelly, Pharrell and Brad Pitt had a three way and miraculously produced an only-child. For someone who's got nothing to say he sure makes one want to listen.

Albert Frost
Blues Rock

We can promise that music lovers will be treated to a live performance by SAMA award-winning blues/rock guitarist/singer Albert Frost, South Africa’s pre-eminent guitarist whose unique, genre crossing style has earned him much respect and adoration among audiences and peers for more than two decades has captivated audiences attention worldwide.

Dubbed the “South African Hendrix”, Frost deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, showcasing his extraordinary skills on acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is the Blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, a well-known and respected group from Cape Town with whom he performed from 1994 at the age of 17.

In 2000 Frost became one of the first Fender endorsees in South Africa and has been linked with the brand ever since.

He has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Karen Zoid, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa as well as international artists like Ali Farka Touré and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and Rem, and supported the Rolling Stones. Albert has performed at legendary and exclusive international music festivals including Isle of Wight, Hard Rock Calling and OppiKoppi.

April 2016 saw the release of his much anticipated third solo album, The Wake Up, which, according to Frost, signals the “start of a new journey” for him. In a departure from Frost’s blues roots, The Wake Up explores various musical avenues and lyrical content to create something he says will surprise and excite his fans. The album won in the coveted Best

Rock Album category at the 2017 SAMA Awards.

After a very successful 2017 Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, Frost was nominated for a Kanna award as well as a kykNET-Fiëstas 2018 for the Best Music Production for

the two shows: with Loki Rothman (The Acoustic Guitar) and with Zolani Mahola (Rok en Rol.) In December Albert Frost was also invited to perform with Henry Ate at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens opening for the Scottish band TEXAS.

His patent enjoyment of the music he performs and his instruments as well as his charming rapport with the audience, keeps his admirers captivated and returning for more.

Funky G

Music flows in everyone’s blood. But for some, the beat pumps harder and faster. Funky G grew up around music, looking up to his father, a musician, and his older brother, a DJ. They played a large part in inspiring him to take a schoolboy love affair with bass-bumping beats and turn it into a successful DJ career.

That career started early. He announced his arrival to the scene at a young age, eagerly winning his first competition at 14. Shortly after, he was hailed as Technics DMC South African DJ Champ (2001). It was the beginning of exciting things to come and highlights include playing alongside some of the world’s biggest names (including Deadmau5, Avicii, Skrillex, Aoki, Afrojack, Paul van Dyk, Pleasurekraft, Nelix and Stimming) & collaborating with local artists (including Goldfish, Locnville, DJ Fresh, Euphonik, Timo ODV, Die Antwoord and Jack Parow).

Funky G’s superpower has always been his ability to read a room and give it what it wants: from ‘Old School’ to Techno, deep house to hip-hop. After 20 years of moving crowds with his sound, invites from the country and abroad continue to stream in, as club owners and event organisers vie for his skill on the decks.

The Robfather   Robert 'The Robfather' Scholtz has been involved in the Music industry for so long, that he was once dubbed a 'music industry cockroach' by the head of, now bankrupt, EMI records. Because 'every time I walk into a new room and turn on the light you're already there in the corner Rob'  Working in the industry since 1996, he's DJ'd with many of South Africas most respected live acts.  His DJ style is eclectic and textured with gems new and old. Well known for being able to read a crowd and give them what they want. He would rather play for the crowd than the bloggers chin stroking in the corner.  He earned his DJ moniker through string pulling and favour trading behind the scenes, to help new and undiscovered DJ's and bands gain recognition. At a time when they were deemed 'too underground', or were just the victims of industry nepotism.  He would like it known, that buying him tequila shots while he's DJ'ing is not only polite but encouraged...

The Hout Bay Ingoma Choir   video link -   https://youtu.be/dOyLrkW1jP8    A South African choir based in Hout Bay near Cape Town, passionate about music and the African choral tradition, and focussed on music and song as a route to personal and community upliftment.  The Ingoma choir was formed in 2016 as a privately sponsored social enterprise. We held open auditions in Imizamo yethu and got an incredible response - dozens of amazing, talented singers turned up! We began rehearsals, under the guidance of our conductor Zamile Gantana, trained baritone and internationally-touring actor and singer, and quickly went from strength to strength.  Our first public performances were two ticketed concerts in Hout Bay, which were an awesome success, and following this we began to be hired for weddings, conferences and other private events. We were also accepted onto the the V&A Waterfront’s programme and perform there once or twice a month. The sky is the limit. Everyone who hears us seems blown away by our beautiful harmonies, and has led to the tagline....“Goosebumps guaranteed”
