Featuring: Dan Patlansky, Albert Frost, Black Cat Bones, Wayne Paul Trio, Dave Ferguson, Sonic Citizen, The Bootleggers, Nhoza Sitsholwana Band, Richard Pryor’s Blues Meets Rock.
Headliner Dan Patlansky was rated by Total Guitar Magazine as the #4 of 10 Best Guitarists in the World. This SA gem of a legend shared a stage with Bruce Springsteen in 2014, toured with Joe Satriani 2015, and one of the highlights of his career was being invited to play for the worldwide Fender annual conference in Holland in 2019. He is also the only artist in the world with two number 1 Best Blues Rock albums to his name, as voted by Blues Rock Review USA. Patlansky says that he is looking forward to performing for a Cape Town crowd again. “I will be touring a lot more over the next few months and my new album will be released later this year.”
Richard Pryor, well-known for his regular brilliant shows in Cape Town and surrounds, is putting together the Blues Meets Rock feature for the day. Asked why he loves the blues, he answers: “Aaaah man. What’s not to love? The chameleon of all genres. It can growl it can purr it can hurt it can kiss it can do whatever the hell it wants to do.” The Richard Pryor band plays regular shows and cover everything from mellow Blues to Full on Classic Rock.
Add to that the phenomenal Albert Frost, the wild and wonderful Black Cat Bones, and the rest of the extraordinarily talented line-up: Wayne Paul Trio, Dave Ferguson, Sonic Citizen, The Bootleggers and Nhoza Sitsholwana Band- and the day is set to be one for the books!
