This June all who call themselves a party animal will come out to play at the merging of much loved CT-based ska band, Captain Stu, and Rus Nerwich and The Collective Imagination at Mercury in Cape Town.
Runner-up of the Road To V-Fest Competition 2008 as the best unsigned band in SA, CAPTAIN STU, brings you an urban twist with a tightly executed, energetic and eclectic blend of ska, funk, rock and reggae while skillfully incorporating as many of their varying influences as possible.
Their sound having been described as “Bundles of fun from a bunch of rowdy boys who know how to make sweet (raunchy) love to their instruments” by Cosmo, Captain Stu brings you party vibes from their rocky and raunchy second album, The Adventures Of Captain Stu, released in February 2009. “Its charm is that its restlessness does have moments of quiet compliments of that sexy saxophone, but it’s never long before the ballsy vocals and dirty drums jump in and get you dancing.”
RUS NERWICH AND THE COLLECTIVE IMAGINATION will be performing compositions from composed works which illustrates an eclectic fusion of world music and jazz coming together in an enigmatic sound that is inspiring, transporting and esoteric in nature.
Be sure not to miss these two top acts as they are set to create mayhem and madness on stage.
