THE 27 CLUB – a musical tribute
The 27 Club is produced and performed by singer Vasti Knoesen, with band members, David Lubbe (piano), Graeme Lees (guitar), Brydon Bolton (double bass) and Jarryd West (drums).
The 27 Club is inspired by musicians Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Brian Jones (The Rolling Stones), Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison (The Doors), who had a big influence on the music world, but all too tragically passed away at the young age of 27.
The music has been reworked by well-known South African composers: Graeme Lees, Matthijs van Dijk and Lise Morrison. Original songs such as ‘Back to Black’, ‘Riders on the Storm’, ‘Come as you are’, and many more were taken and transformed with elements of jazz, harmonic dissonance, rock and classical music structures. In edition you can also expect to hear some songs from Radiohead, Guns ‘n Roses, Metallica and others.
Venue: 60 Hout street @ 22Seven in Cape Town
Dates: 11 and 18 May
Tickets: R150 on Quicket (also cash at the door)
