I had the lovely opportunity to perform at the annual Nederburg Auction early in the month. I performed alongside members of the Kitchen Jamming Blues Band and the talented Mr Henry Steel. We performed a few of my songs as well as some tunes from the Her Blues show and of course some of the cool tunes Simon Orange performs as part of his repertoire in the Kitchen Jamming Blues Band. Thank you to Nederburg and the Aleit Group for taking such good care of us. We LOVED the wine.
On the 23rd of September fans can look forward to enjoying Her Blues at the monthly Sunday Wine Set at Marianne Wine Estate. This is a laid back concert series aimed at inviting locals (Paarl, Stellenbosch and surrounds) to the award winning wine estate. Join us from 3pm – 6pm for some blues tunes, delicious tapas and fantastic wines. The sunset is great, the service is good and the vibe is perfect for a lazy unwinding Sunday. Bookings are essential, so make sure you book by mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Entrance is free of charge. With me on stage is Simon Orange on keys, Michael Bester on guitars, Sean Sanby on double bass and bass and Kevin Gibson on drums.
Then we will start preparing for Aardklop. Korreltjie Kantel is heading that way early October. We are performing from 4-6 October at the Elgro Hotel Hall. Then we are off to perform in Pretoria on Sunday afternoon the 7th of October at 14h00. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces at the Musiekskuur in Pretoria! Bookings for that performance can be done through Webtickets.
Then, I am finally writing new songs again. It’s been a while since I felt inspired. And I have some new technology coming my way, which will probably influence the sound. I am very excited to start playing with my new toys – thanks to Bothner Music! I will most definitely share my progress.
