19:00-19:30 2G (Ron and John)
The name 2G simply refers to the first letter of the lads’ surnames. John Goodall is on acoustic guitar and is the lead vocalist, while Ron Gevers contributes the odd harmony (thanks to Fisherman’s Friends), and acts as ‘concussionist’ in chief.
19:30-20:00 Matt Singer (Rukuz)
Matt “Oldog” Singer is a seasoned musician from Cape Town. Formerly known for his music projects: “RuKuZ” and “Dead Lucky”, he has toured the African continent both as a band member and a session musician. Since his relocation from Cape Town, he has started a solo project playing mostly originals, and a few re-styled covers from various artists. Matt plays six-, twelve-string and bass guitar, does music production, and has a home recording studio based in Camperdown.
Many bands have influenced his life as a musician. Styles ranging from heavy metal act Pantera right down to texan blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan. Since moving to Kwazulu Natal, he has played a few of the local venues, and regularly gets asked to return because of the energetic performances that he delivers.
20:00-20:50 Stormy Monday KZN
Stormy Monday describe themselves as a “real live band”. Real instruments, real voices, no MIDI, no auto-tune and an honest-to-goodness real drum kit (yes kids, you can still see them on Wikipedia). Band members include Sylvia Tempest, @Richard Tempest, Hylton Blignaut and Adrian Haycock. We look forward to welcoming them back to MiTH!
A firm MiTH favourite, at the age of twenty four, Seb Goldswain is already considered by many of South Africa’s elite professional musicians as one of the top performing guitar players in the country. Seb is a highly versatile musician, having studied jazz guitar and composition up to Honours level at UKZN. Performing with his own original electric band, as well as regularly working with some of SA’s top established artists, Seb performs his own highly energetic original solo acoustic set to enthusiastic reception. Armed with either an acoustic guitar or with an electric guitar and a Marshall stack, Sebastian has the rare ability to wow and draw crowds into a frenzy with nothing but his original music, electric stage energy and outstanding guitar playing.
MiTH is a semi-open mic music club. An opportunity for musicians to share the joy of their music with a friendly audience which includes fellow musicians – who have all “been there” too.
