NEXT FREE CONCERT - NANTES PARK 31/01/2016
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Jimmy Nevis is a young (22 years old) alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer.
Signed to Cape Town record Label, Rude World Records, with a publishing, licensing and distribution deal with David Gresham Records, Jimmy Nevis released his debut album entitled "Subliminal" in November 2012.
Jimmy is currently riding high on South African airplay with a number of hit singles including Elephant Shoes, Heartboxing, In Love With You and Balloon – All chart toppers on various South African radio stations, respectively. The Heartboxing Music Video had successfully reached the No. 1 spot on Trace Urban African Chart in early 2013.
Nevis: "I'm trying to get South Africa back into pop music. I think it's so neglected and undermined and I love the fact that I can be a part of someone's memory. Pop music has that power. I feel like I've been wanting this for so long that I have to embrace it."
Nevis has been very fortunate to share the stage with some of South Africa’s best musicians - getting the opportunity to work with the best in the business. In 2013 he collaborated with the likes of Mi Casa, Pascal & Pearce and Kwesta, and features on their recently released albums.
Nominated for awards such as SAMA Kia Record of The Year, Wawela Awards - Best Male Artist & Composer and a Channel O African Music Video Award, Nevis returns with his highly anticipated Sophomore album “The Masses”
The Rudimentals are an eight-piece ska/reggae band from Cape Town, South Africa. The band's releases include two CDs, More Fire and Set It Proper, and a live DVD/CD combo of the 2007 Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens Concert. The band is signed to the United Kingdom based Moon Ska World distribution label. The group is one of a handful of Cape Town reggae-influenced bands, and has been described as a South African institution in tourist guides and on websites.
The original members of the band were bassist Barry Clausen, guitarist Etienne Harris, drummer Duane Heydenreych and keyboardist Milandro Mapenga. It wasn't until they met with Zimbabwean showman Teboho (Teboes) Maidza that the band began to grow seriously. Teboes is known to have played alongside Andy Brown and Oliver Mtukudzi. The band subsequently took on a three-piece brass section, in the form of The University of Cape Town's Simon Bates on saxophone, Jody Engelbrecht on trumpet and Ross McDonald on trombone. Dirk Meerkotter replaced Milandru Mapengo on keys.
