Fresh from returning from his 2022 international tours, DAN PATLANSKY brings fans another rendition of his hit offering, entitled ME, MYSELF & MY STRAT.
After years of touring his solo acoustic show, DAN decided to bring his trusty electric guitar along, and will be performing songs from the past and present. While the show can be considered a stripped back version of the full band show, but don't be fooled: It still packs plenty of punch and heaps of soul!

Be the first to experience how Albert Frost's distinctive guitar skills are complemented by Jake Gunn's stripped-down piano playing. For the past two decades the energetic performances of SAMA award winning blues/rock guitarist/singer Albert Frost has captured audiences worldwide. Dubbed the "South African Hendrix", Frost deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, showcasing his extraordinary skills on the acoustic and electric guitars. He will be joined on the night by fellow blues rock musician Jake Gunn. Usually a guitarist, Gunn has recently been surprising audiences with his unique and straight-forward piano style. Frost and Gunn will be paying homage to their musical heroes, like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Nick Cave as well as performing their own original songs, ensuring a night of music the audience won't soon forget.

Boeremusiek op die klavier - Die pianis Rocco de Villiers en sy orkes met Hano Smit op kitare en Morne Toua op bas, konsertina en akkordion toor met die gewilde keurspele van Jim Muller. Immergroen treffers van Nico Carstens, soos "Die Klokkiewals" en "Zambesi", "Warm Snare" van wyle Hansie Roodt Snr, Hendrik Susan, Ollie Viljoen en Taffie Kikillus, word ook afgestof, blink gepoets en kry 'n nuwe huppel in die stap vir die 21ste eeu. Hierdie moenie-mis-konsert is 'n huldeblyk, 'n reis van nostalgie en 'n kykie in die toekoms sonder om die verlede te vergeet. Voeg daarby 'n uitgevatte orkes, Rocco se sin vir humor en die voete begin te jeuk.
