I guess when you love doing something, its never too tedious to do, neh, so let me tell you what’s going down on All Jazz Radio on this rather balmy but lovely morning the Mother City. There’s lots of exciting new music and other stuff to come through out our streaming day, today.

Plebs Live Acoustic Music, Comedy & Craft Beer

Plebs Live Acoustic Music, Comedy & Craft Beer

I went to a venue, Plebs Live Acoustic Music, Comedy & Craft Beer in Mowbray which I’d not been to before last evening for what was billed as a curry taste off where 7 various curry dishes were presented, Lamb, Chicken Thai Chicken, Beef, Fish and Bobotie and served with rice and all cooked by home cooks. Best of all was the cost at R25 for all six which were served in bowls and enough for the three of us old friend who I hadn’t seen for yonks, with Alison, Barry and I sharing the table and quaffing the Belgium style craft ale, which wasn’t too bad at all. The evenings music was performed by a number acoustic folk musicians some of which were very good, some not so good and some who were real prima donna’s, sulked and did not perform because they did not bring all the needed equipment with them, nuff said. The place could do with a real clean up, décor wise, just little too drab, however it’s not run as a restaurant, though it could be as it is the place the ale is brewed. All in all a very lekker evening catching up with old friends, enjoying the music, mixing and meeting with great like minded peeps.


Straight No Chaser

Straight No Chaser

At Straight No Chaser in Cape Town tonight there is the launch of drummer Claude Cozens’ debut album, which I’m looking forward to. The album titles Jubilee Jazz feature the mercurial Kyle Shepherd, who recently released his new album in Grahamstown, on Piano and Keys, Benjamin Jephta playing bass, I do believe that Benjamin is putting the finishing touches to his sophomore album, something I’m looking forward to immensely.
