Foxtrot band

Q&A: Foxtrot on looping, popping and dancing at Park Acoustics

Foxtrot is a relatively new band from Pretoria, who play a hard-to-define kind of “Foxpop” music (“with a scent of jazz, African grooves and theatrical inspiration”). The group consists of Siobhan Lloyd-Jones on violin & vocals, Ronald Davey on cello, trumpet, and vocals, Mart-Marie Snyman on keys, and James Robb on drums and percussion. They’re playing the next Park Acoustics on 4 February, so we asked them a couple of questions to alleviate our anticipation…

Pollinator

Pollinator is excited for Park Acoustics like matrics before the ball

Pollinator is a three-piece rock band from Joburg, and they’ll be making a debut Park Acoustics appearance this Sunday. After we spotted them playing in dresses at Oppikoppi this year (they wanted to look like they were off to a matric dance), we couldn’t resist asking them about balls, music, and mating calls.

The Black Cat Bones - Waking The Scarecrow

The Black Cat Bones: Waking Scarecrows and Capturing Energy

Kobus de Kock Jr, the vocalist and frontman of The Black Cat Bones, is very rarely seen on stages where he’s not performing. 7 December 2016, at The Shadowboxer in Greenside, Johannesburg, was an exception. He explained that the band – famous for their over-the-top spirited live performances – had always found it difficult to capture the same energy in the recording studio. And that’s why Waking The Scarecrow – their first live DVD – is such an appropriate and welcome addition to The Black Cat Bones‘ discography.

Tommy Gun: Plastic water guns and Barbie girls

Tommy Gun isn’t a machine gun used by gangsters in old movies – he’s a DJ from Cape Town, who’ll be visiting the last Park Acoustics of 2016 – this Saturday (26 November) at the Voortrekker Monument. We caught up with him, and had a quick chat about Aqua’s Barbie Girl, afternoon DJ sets, and – wait, did I say “Barbie Girl”?

Park Acoustics November 2016

Alyn Adams – from Rastafarian librarians to Okes & Jokes

Next Saturday, at the “Last Park Acoustics of 2016”, local comedian Alan Adyms will be one of many entertainers working hard to provide a day chock-full of music, comedy, and dancing. We asked Alyn a few questions ahead of the event.
