The Rescu on tour with Prime Circle

The RescuThis Summer, Cape Town Rock Trio THE RESCU, will be supporting Prime Circle on their “Evidence” album launch tour. Starting in Durban and making their way along the coast, the 3-piece will be performing songs from their current self-titled debut album, including hit singles “I Did it For you” and “Beautiful Life“, and the brand new unreleased single “Alright“.

When asked what the band is looking forward to most while touring with Prime Circle, front man and bassist, Mike Vaughan exclaims, “Firstly, few things come close to going on tour! We are going to pretty much drive across our beloved South Africa, arriving at venues where we get to showcase our stuff while supporting SA’s biggest rock outfit…what more can we say?”

Since the release of their self-titled debut album in August 2011, THE RESCU has embarked on an amazing musical journey which has seen them share the stage with International rock band, SWITCHFOOT, during their recent South African tour in August 2012.

Nibs van der Spuy & Guy Buttery 5 Shows in June!

After over a decade of writing, recording and touring together, Nibs van der Spuy and Guy Buttery have finally recorded their first ever collaborative album. Following an extremely successful string of launches in South Africa, these internationally renowned guitarists will be touring their brand new show at prestigious festivals and venues throughout Europe and the UK accompanied by the release of their debut duo album “In the Shade of the Wild Fig”. The album has been picked up and is scheduled for an international release later in the year.

These two virtuosos collaborated on a series of shows in the early and mid-2000’s before their respective careers took off, both locally and internationally, with rigorous individual touring schedules. Their performing paths crossed at a major festival in Toulouse, France, and this inspired a new combination of performances and sowed the seed for doing a full length album together. “In The Shade of the Wild Fig” showcases their mutual interest and deep love for world music and different folk movements featuring numerous instruments such as the cuatro, mbira, tampura, sitar and various acoustic guitars.

Guy has recently been featured in the world’s biggest selling guitar magazine ‘Guitar Player’ which saw him performing at leading guitar festivals throughout Europe, Australia and the US. He has also just picked up 3 national awards including the esteemed SAMA Award for ‘Best Instrumental Album’. In the same vein, Nibs has become a highly acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter, being featured in leading publications from France’s ‘Liberation’ to the UK ‘Guardian’. He performs regularly abroad with his biggest support base being in France.

Join two of South African’s living legends in concert in their 5 show run in one of the country’s finest theatres this week.
