The group consists of founding members Kobus de Kock Jr (vocals) and Andre Kriel (guitars) with Chris vd Walt (bass) andcurrently Gareth Bunge (drums) rounding off what is considered to be one of the current top performing acts in the country. Both their debut album ‘Silverton Swamp Songs’ (2009), and the critically acclaimed second helping ‘The Long Drive’ (2011) were heavily influenced by Kobus and Andre’s blues roots but, in 2013, the band released their third (SAMA nominated) studio album ‘Beatipliller’ which showcased their collective influences as a diverse 4-piece rock act. In the same year the band also won the MK Award for ‘Best Live Act’ and emerged from being underground sub-culture champions to a group that is adored nationwide by a constantly expanding, and ever-loyal following from all walks of life. The Lectric Monks are a South African upbeat “Tarantino-Funk ‘n Roll” outfit from Pretoria, formed in Spring 2014. The 6-piece includes, Francois vd Merwe (Rhythm and Vocals), Gary Peacock (Harmonica and Vocals), Henk Oosthuizen (Lead Guitar and Vocals), Cynthia van der Mescht (Keys), Duncan Potgieter (Drums) and Dylan du Toit (Bass). Drawing from rootsy rock ‘n roll, folk, classical, blues, indie, funk and psychedelic music and 4 piece harmonies, the band’s image and sound evokes a nostalgic blend of music of the past with today’s modern styles, creating an upbeat dance experience for all, “a new kind of old stuff” as some have described. Tuin is an upcoming singer song writer from Pretoria blowing crowds away with her unique voice. This barefoot vocal activist will take you on a musical journey like none other. There is a massive gap and need for a new Sa Rock female vocalist – Tuin ticks all the requirements. Tuin has been performing on stage for the past 5 years and recently also launched their full band project. They have opened for Carley Rae Jepsen and have played at all the major festivals incl Oppikoppi, Strab, Otterlake, White Mountain, I-Fest, Vryfees & Innibos. It is at Innibos in 2016 that they won the Rockrumoer competition and with that recorded their 1st single and music video for Kinder van die Nag that will be released in 2017. Tuin can cater to all needs from a very vibey or chilled duo set to the full band for a more original rock feel. So, how do you get your hands on those tickets?
