Blood Brothers 2017: A chat with Loandi Boersma

The cancer-fighting Blood Brothers are returning with the 2017 edition of their annual fund-and-awareness raising concerts. And for the second time, there’s a female “brother” in the mix — so we made sure to ask Cortina Whiplash’ Loandi Boersma a couple of questions about the upcoming show on 30 September… Continue reading “Blood Brothers 2017: A chat with Loandi Boersma”

Blood Brothers 2017: A chat with Kobus de Kock Jnr

Blood Brothers, the annual rock supergroup concert that aims to create cancer awareness among young people by “rocking their hearts out”, is happening on 30 September at the Good Luck Bar in Johannesburg. We managed to talk to Kobus de Kock Jnr, one of the ten musicians in the group, about the event, the campaign, and his experience as a third-timer.

aKing

aKing on musical heritage, changing sounds, and the secret to birthday parties

When aKing first debuted in 2008, many people’s first question was about whether they’d have anything in common with Fokofpolisiekar, with whom they shared two members. But almost as soon as the “Fokof spinoff” buzz happened, aKing managed to prove themselves as a fiercly maverick, musically strong act. We asked Hennie van Halen, the group’s bass guitarist, about the band’s journey, and their upcoming show at The Good Luck Bar’s second Birthday party.

RECAP: Liefde by die dam 2017

Alhoewel ek nie self by verlede jaar s’n was nie, kon mens agterkom aan die gehoor dat Liefde By Die Dam 2017 reeds soos ‘n instelling voel. Daar is ‘n rustige gemak aan die konsertgangers by Emmarentia Dam, wat heel waarskynlik omtrent op hul agterstoep kon kom piekniek hou, musiek luister, en aan ‘n maklike liefdadigheidsveldtog deelneem.

Onderhoud: Loki Rothman en kie is by Liefde by die Dam 2017

Loki Rothman is meestal bekend vir sy virtuoso kitaarspel, maar is ook ‘n sanger en liedjieskrywer in eie reg. Hy het die Top 6 van South Africa’s Got Talent gehaal, en al saam met Jack Parow, Die Heuwels Fantasties, en nou ook Laurika Rauch opgetree en opgeneem.

Innibos

Goed, Beter, Innibos 2017

Laat ek sommer uit die staanspoor sê dat ek tot hierdie jaar nog nooit ’n Innibos-fees bygewoon het nie. As ’n self-erkende fees “junkie”, is ek nogal skaam dat hierdie jaarlikse instelling in Mbombela (Nelspruit) in Mpumalanga nog altyd buite my radar was. Meer as 100 000 mense wat per jaar hierdie fees bywoon (vanjaar het daar meer as 101 000 pare voete deur die hekke beweeg!) kan nie verkeerd wees nie, so ek is baie bly ek het besluit om my tassies te pak vir hierdie mengelmoes feeservaring.
