Hello again, CITP fans! What an epic event on Sunday! Seriously, just wow! For those who were there you’ll know what I’m talking about. For those who missed it, um, you really missed out!
Right from the get-go, things started off with a bang – of the vaudeville persuasion that is. The Dukes of Note kicked off with so much energy that any thoughts of lazy Sunday afternoons were quickly abandoned. These Dukes are ones to watch. Have you ever heard of carnival-rock? Well, think fantasy, sinister-sounding melodies tempered with fun, upbeat rhythms, burlesque ladies with black feather boas, top hats and clowns – what a show!
Following on with a similarly festive inclination, was Crimson House! And oh my word, did they get the crowd going with their utterly infectious energy. With their unique Gypsy-rock inspired sound, they took the audience on a foot-stomping musical journey that filled up the senses and left all those around wanting for more. What a band - what a performance - thanks Crimson House!
And then, to finish off our inaugural concert in style, we had the wonderful Arno Carstens, with his very talented band of musos. Playing tracks from his latest album, ‘Lightening Prevails’, along with a medley of older hits, this platinum-selling and award-winning artist just took things to another level and fans were treated to a thrilling performance from a true South African music legend.
If you did miss the first concert, don’t despair too much. Just make sure you’re at the next one on 8 January 2017 at Wynberg Park. Headline artist Khan Morbee (from the Parlotones), supported by The Rudimentals and Sonic Citizen – need I say more?
