Event - Winter Jazz & Blues Weekend

Start Date: 2017-07-07 · End Date: 2017-07-09 · Venue: Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Nelson Mandela Square

 
Following hot on the heels of their successful 5th Annual 'Jazz & Blues Weekend' held earlier this year, Anthony Yoko, jazz impresario and founder of JazzConcertsSA, in collaboration with Daphne Kuhn of 'Auto & General Theatre on the Square' are presenting their 'Winter Jazz & Blues Weekend' from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th July, 2017.
 
Fans and followers of Jazz & Blues can look forward to three unique concerts commencing Friday evening 7th July with fresh sounds and fabulous arrangements of jazz and Latin beats from Nelmarie Naude and her Boulevard Jazz Ensemble. The ensemble features some of South Africa’s leading studio musicians!
Then on Saturday evening 8th July, the ‘Blues’ men take to the stage in the form of ‘The Redhand Blues Band’ led by that swinging double-bass player with the gravel voice, Martin Meerholz !   These boys know how to get your feet tapping and your fingers snapping … music from the Mississippi to Chicago including a touch of Elvis Presley!
 
Closing the weekend with his popular trio, the inimitable and renowned South African pianist Charl du Plessis will be at the Steinway Grand for an amazing journey into the world of ‘Baroque Swing’ …. You’ll hear meticulous jazz arrangements of well-known classics and other jazz standards that only Charl can produce along with his outstanding accompanists, bass player Werner Spies and drummer Hugo Radyn … a concert not to be missed!
 
Tickets for all concerts are priced at R185.- and reservations may be made on-line via Computicket or by calling the box office at Theatre on the Square 011 8838606.
