Ben Dey and The Concrete Lions (BDCL) are an Afro/Indie pop-rock band from Cape Town. Wanting to create music that showcases this powerful force among African people, the band fused Indie folk with some locally inspired Afro-pop beats to create their unique blend. Their philosophy is that music speaks a universal language and can be used to uplift and inspire communities the world over. Founded in 2015, BDCL is the result of an unlikely friendship between self-taught musicians Ben and Ongama and the ability of music to bring people together. Both from different walks of life, collectively they are the driving force behind the band and despite some line-up changes over the years, the music has remained much the same. Made up of Ben Dey (lead singer), Ongama Mona (lead guitar, backing vocals), Alex Birns (percussion) and Dillon Birns (bass), the foursome shares the same ambition, ideology and commitment which has been crucial from the get go.

Kurt Darren is one of South Africa’s biggest selling artists and is the winner of 7 SAMA awards. As well as featuring on television in movies, Kurt is well known for a string of major hits over the last two decades. Kurt is a world class entertainer with an incredible voice and is a natural born entertainer. His last indoor show at cafe Roux was one of the most memorable intimate performances we have staged. His backing band on the night is Me and Mr Brown who have established themselves over the last few years as one of the country’s best party bands. “Kaptein” is one of the most popular songs in SA music history.

With a history steeped in music and a lifetime spent gaining insight and wisdom the world over, Mantis brings something truly generous to his performances – a sense of common humanity and togetherness. The brotherhood between band members and the sincere heart expressed through their music is tangible. It is undeniable that their vision is to create a conscious shift through their music and to hold a space within which meaningful shared experiences can take place. For those lucky enough to share in it, JMB leads those who share in their music on an unforgettable journey . While the band is still based in Europe, his wanderlust has inevitably led Mantis back home to South Africa where he intends to pick up where he once left off many moons ago.

There are few acclaimed musicians, singers, songwriters, producers and astute business minds that have the luxury of labelling themselves ‘late developers’ when, in reality, they’ve already achieved more than most will in an entire band’s collective lifetime. In the case of Cape Town born-and-raised James Stewart, he not only fits the description to a T, he most likely helped trademark the mould. That’s just how considered the Franschhoek-based, Emmy-nominated, multi SAMA award winning, chart topping creative patently is. Labelling himself humbly and austerely a ‘musician’, James has spent the better part of his music career hell-bent on delivering seminal songs, most of which have enjoyed extended periods of times hugging the very tops of the South African and capturing hearts and minds around the world.

Never far from likeminded genius, guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the blues, DAN PATLANSKY sidles into his second successive decade as one of the world’s finest blues-based storytellers of his generation. In December 2014, his album DEAR SILENCE THIEVES (produced by Theo Crous) was voted the #1 Blues Rock Album in the world released for 2014 by BLUES ROCK REVIEW/USA, alongside names such as Joe Bonamassa, Rival Sons, Devon Allman, The Black Keys, Philip Sayce, and many more. Dan started 2014 off with a bang when he was chosen to open for BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN in front of 64 000 people at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in February on his High Hopes tour. Dan was personally approved by Springsteen as support act, seeing as Springsteen rarely has guest artists for his shows.” Have a listen: https://www.youtube.com/user/DANPATLANSKYfull

Nik Rabinowitz’s new show promises to be funnier than his last show, but not as funny as his next show. It will definitely be worth your time away from the thing you would otherwise be doing, which is lying on your bed checking all four of your social media apps in a row, for so long, that by the time you’re done you can go back to Facebook and start again. If you’re not on social media, then you’ve probably binged watched all the good series, and are now left with the ones you’re not sure about, like Chef’s Table Season 2, and Vikings. The point is.. get out of your house! Pokémon are everywhere!
