Don Vino and Jonathan Rubain will present ‘Intimate Nights Chapter 2’ – The Live DVD and CD Recording at the Baxter Concert Hall from September 4 to 6 at 8.15pm nightly.
After the success of the first instalment of ‘Intimate Nights Chapter 2’, Cape Town audiences have the chance to be part of the recording of this inspiring show from two of Cape Town’s most exciting musical talents. The pair has each written new material for this performance, so there’s something new for everyone.
The production includes originally composed music, a selection of tributes and, of course, their banter, which made for an enjoyable and intimate evening in the company of these two gifted musicians the last time the show featured.
Since the last run, the duo has been touring with Grammy award winner, saxophonist and songwriter Kirk Whalum.
Whalum toured with Whitney Houston for more than seven years and soloed in her single ‘I Will Always Love You’.
Vino has performed with jazz and gospel bands in and around Cape Town since he was fifteen. His illustrious career has seen him tour to the USA, Europe, Dubai and Australia and included playing with the likes of Lady Smith Black Mambazo, Tevin Campbell, Percy Sledge, Judith Sephuma, PJ Powers and Lloyd Cele, among many others.
Rubain leads The Jonathan Rubain Band, which is a firm festival favourite in and around Cape Town. In 2010 they launched their first album, ‘Happy People’ and they have performed at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, as well as the Festival’s Community Concerts. Rubain has also worked with David Kramer on ‘The David Kramer and Taliep Petersen Songbook’, ‘Three Wise Men’ and ‘Some Like it Vrot’.
