GrandWest CSI’s entertaining variety show Rocking Our City will be staged at the GrandWest Grand Arena on Saturday November 24.
In addition to headline artists Danny K and Loyiso Bala, the line-up will include popular Capetonian performers to give the show a colourful local flavour.
Keeping it all together during the show will be the irrepressible duo of Soli Philander and comedian Kurt Schoonraad.
The Cape Town contingent includes our own incredible opera singer James Bhemgee, who first shot to fame as ‘SA’s Got Talent’ winner for 2010. From singing in the streets, where he worked as a street sweeper, Bhemgee has recently released his debut CD, ‘Vincero’.
Another favourite Capetonian performer who was given a spotlight in the ‘SA’s Got Talent’ contest is Mady Abrahams, who was the runner up to James Bhemgee. From her rousing rendition of Whitney Houston’s ‘One Moment In Time’, Abrahams’s vocal range has taken her as far afield as the Arab states and she has just released her debut album ‘It’s All About You’.
And no celebration of Cape Town’s musical talent would be complete without the legendary Mr Zayn Adam, who celebrates his 50th Musical Anniversary this year and is considered by many to be one of SA’s finest singers ever.
Also sharing the stage will be versatile pianist Camillo Lombard who regularly performs with many of South Africa’s leading artists and musicians when he is not teaching aspiring musicians.
Also on the bill is Jeremy Olivier, a Jazz graduate of UCT, who performs throughout South Africa and abroad as a vocalist and guitarist. His recent career highlights include singing backing vocals for George Benson and playing guitar for the Welsh classical singer Katherine Jenkins.
For this and much more, don’t miss ‘Rocking Our City’.
* The show starts at 8pm and tickets are available at Computicket between R150 to R220.
