The beautiful V&A Waterfront is going to be entertaining all visitors to the best city on earth with some of SA’s favourite bands. A total of 5 SA bands will be rocking the stage in the Amphitheatre’s Summer Concerts between Wednesday 26 and Sunday 30 December.
First up will be energetic local band Hot Water on Wednesday 26 December between 18h00 and 19h00. Hot Water’s music incorporates elements of traditional South African music such as kwela, mbaqana, sakkie-sakkie, ghoema and kwasa-kwasa blended with folk, blues and indie pop rock.
On Thursday 27 December, between 18h00 and 19h00, popular pop rock band macstanley, previously known as Flat Stanley, will show the audience why they are in demand with European audiences.
Bringing an element of Michael Buble and Josh Groban to the week, South Africa’s own master vocalist Selim Kagee will wow visitors with his incredible vocal range on Friday 28 December between 18h00 and 18h30. Selim’s classical training enables him to deliver a romantic combination of classic and pop songs in both English and Italian.
Following on from Selim between 18h30 and 19h00, the glamorous mooiness from Sterling EQ will raise the summer temperature even further. This quartet of talented female musicians make instruments rock and in 2011 they fiddled their way to winning a SAMA Award, becoming only the second all-girl group to ever win one of the coveted awards.
On Saturday 29 December the lively and irie vibes inspired band The Rudimentals will entertain the crowd between 18h00 and 19h00. This eight-piece ska-reggae outfit from Cape Town regularly perform at top music events and festivals and have released three albums to date.
