Tresor at Cafe Roux

Sat 10

I really enjoyed Tresor’s show at Cafe Roux – he’s one of those artists whose music I couldn’t say I’d consciously heard before but I recognised 3 or 4 tracks from the radio as soon as they started.

Tresor’s story is one of hard work and talent paying off: originally from the DRC, he worked as a car and security guard during the past 8 years he’s lived in SA, working to fulfil his musical ambitions. He went on to win best pop album at last year’s SAMMAs.

His achievements are definitely well deserved – he’s a great performer.

Desmond & The Tutus, Retro Dizzy & Runaway Nuns at Mercury

Handsdown the fullest I’ve seen a venue for a local gig in a long time – from 9:30 the street outside Mercury was totally parked up and by the time headliners Desmond & the Tutus took to the stage the place was packed to bursting. Utter madness. Here are some shots of the show, also featuring Retro Dizzy and last minute lineup addition Runaway Nuns.

Ann Jangle always puts on a captivating show, and her performance at Cafe Roux (accompanied by guitarist Basson Laubscher and Jess van der Merwe on the sax) was no exception, including interesting anecdotes and even a mother’s day shout out to Mother Jangle it was a very entertaining night.
