Hi Music Lovers! The Barleycorn Music Club is one of South Africa’s oldest gatherings of musicians. Every Monday evening at Rygersdal Sports Club in Rondebosch, Cape Town, a gentle folk/rock lineup and draught beers set the scene for upcoming and established local artists. Here’s your Barleycorn Lineup for this week, the 5th May 2008. Enjoy the show!
Yves (from Trailer Rich) is a singer / guitarist, who delivers acoustic flavoured songs of the conviction and integrity of Rodriguez, Chris Cornell and Jack Johnson. For the past ten years, he’s been playing guitar in various bands such as Desert Velvet with Al Paton and Fahrenheit, but recently decided to get more involved in songwriting. He has successfully recorded a 12-track demo and we’re looking forward to hearing his performance of captivating, original lyrics combined with great skill, both vocally and on guitar.
Original 2-piece acoustic project out of Cape Town. Having played together in another band for the last six years, the members, James Klopper and Jon Shaban have become great friends and have an acute understanding of each other. This, together with their approach to life, love, religion and everything else, helps to create a style of acoustic music containing unique instrumentation, vocal harmonies and thoughtful lyrics, which are challenges the listener. This duo is quickly making name for themselves in Cape Town and have recently opened for bands such as Harris Tweed and Hunter. You can also catch them playing partly cover gigs at pubs on weekly basis. Jon and James will surely captivate our audience again this Monday.
This duo has a refreshing, original style of light rock containing a hint of influence from Pink Floyd, Jack Johnson, Sting, John Mayer, Bon Jovi and more. Dave, on vocals and guitar, will be accompanied by his brother on vocals and bass guitar. Dave is also the owner of “Take Note” – a stylish restaurant / bar located in Tokai.
