We’ve invited some special guests for an even more special weekend: our birthday! Coming out of Johannesburg, this pop/rock group is proud to present their new album, Hoogtevrees. You may have heard them in the movie “Pad Na Jou Hart” where they sung “Sal Oorlog Vir Jou Maak”, which veered away from their typical pop style and had a vibe they likened to Mumford and Sons. Come out for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with great music from this trio as they play some of their news songs along with a bunch of their classics.
