Don’t miss your favourite Arno Carstens song!
This gypsy rock band was founded in Namibia in 2010 by Arno Van Zyl and Riaan Smit. They wanted to find a sound that would give them the feeling of bliss they sought in their music.
When they were joined by Christoph de Chevonnes Vrugt on drums and Jacques Jansen Van Rensburg on bass they found that their rhythm section was transformed into something completely different from other blues bands as they drew more inspiration from punk and metal.
As a result, the music took a direction no one saw coming. It went from blues, to bluegrass-western-punk with Tom Waits/Joe Cocker styled vocals soaked in gypsy undertones.
Nick Becker was later enlisted to add his Alto saxophone skills to the album ‘Red Shack Rock’ and has since become an honorary member of the band.
They are known for jumping between genres with ease. In one set you can expect Latin, gypsy, folk, blues, rock, punk, metal, grunge, funk, jazz, country and bluegrass.
Dukes of Note
A new band on the block, Dukes of Notes’ carnival rock style showcases a blend of dark, playful theatrics to make for a truly unforgettable rock and roll experience.
They have tempered their theatrical vis-audio music for an inimitable experience. Each member brings a creative theme of play into the music. The lighthearted storytelling with smatterings of vaudeville reveal their rock and roll energy.
The Dukes recently produced a music video to accompany their newly released single ‘Welcome to the Carnival’.
Look out for the RSAWEB team at all the concerts. Enter our competition on the day and you could stand a chance to win amazing prizes!
We hope to see you there!
