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.

Take Note – Rear Window

Take Note - Rear WindowThis seven piece band from Port Elizabeth are following in the footsteps of the iconic Jazz Ministers, who in the 1970’s defined the sound of Township Jazz. This group of young jazz enthusiasts have done justice to a genre that was fast becoming extinct. At least for what we know and remember true Township jazz to be!

The 14-track album ‘Rear Window’ is mixture of contemporary jazz with afro-soul. “It is a reflection of the township traditional songs as well as modern changes in society.” Songs such as “Sakhile” and “Unonkala” are typical township jazz classics from the early 60s to late 70’s. Other tracks such as “All in your eyes” signify the emerging tradition of Afro-Soul.

Take Note have also shared the stage with a number of national artists including DJ Cleo and Sliq Angel. The group recently performed with jazz legend Retsie Pule in Uitenhage.
