5.6.7 JULY -3 Shows -with top SA Jazz band Top Dog at Grandwest -Don’t Miss it

Three nights and a mere 450 seats make this highly anticipated new album reveal July’s hot, must-see show ,with Top Dog SA

Top Dog SA’s saxophonist Donveno Prins, who most recently lead the band for the inaugural run for David Kramer’s Kanala show at The Fugard Theatre, is also the band’s leader.

Add Camillo Lombard on keyboards, Charlton Daniels on bass, Mornay Hoffmeester on drums and Mark Williams on guitar and you’re in the company of some of South Africa’s most highly sought after and hugely respected music makers who’ve played with some of the greats.

Now it’s their turn to shine and you’re invited.

Described as a fresh vibrant band, and a force to be reckoned with, Top Dog SA has already made its mark in venues as diverse as Bellville Velodrome, right through to Carnival City in Johannesburg. They’ve also featured at major music festivals, including Cape Town International Jazz Festival, Jazz On The Rocks Festival, Safricon Jazz Fest, Kenya, and Satchmo’s Jazz Fest in Nigeria.

With a recipe that’s made up of equal parts Afro Vibes and fusion jazz fuelled by Khoi san legacy and various indigenous African rhythms the band calls “KhoiJazz”.

“We’ll be doing two sets,” Don reveals, “where the full repertoire of our musical influences and stories will be played.” “It’s going to be two hours of exceptional music,” Mornay adds. “Some tracks, from our recently released debut album, Griqua DNA, have never been played live before, so we’re excited to perform them in front of a live audience for the very first time. The vibe in the studio was amazing when we recorded these songs, so seeing how they’ll translate live has us all filled with nervous anticipation. It’s a great place and privilege for any musician to be in that space.”

The collective is also focused on Youth and Community Development, sharing their time and talent teaching youth in impoverished communities, as well as presenting reading classes, and supporting events the likes of Music Exchange.

Patrick Stephan Kluivert from Barcelona at On the Couch at HEART 104.9FM on Saturday 27 Feb 2016

We have had many stars interviewed on #OTC at Heart 104.9fm over the last 12 years ,yet non bigger than Patrick Stephan Kluivert (born 1 July 1976)

The #OTC show was invented myself and offers light hearted fun banter with Flapper and host Tapfuma Makina .The show air every Saturday from 9-10am

He is a football coach and a former Dutch footballer and the current manager of the Curaçao national team. As a player, he played as a striker for Ajax, Milan, FC Barcelona, Newcastle United, Valencia, PSV Eindhoven, and Lille.

He began his coaching career as an assistant coach for AZ and then NEC, having had a brief coaching stint in Australia with the Brisbane Roar, before coaching Jong FC Twente to a national title in the Dutch reserves league.

He was the assistant manager to Louis van Gaal, for the Netherlands national football team, in their third-place finish at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Part of Ajax’s Golden Generation of the 1990s, aged 18, Kluivert scored the winner in the 1995 UEFA Champions League Final.

He spent six years with Spanish club Barcelona where he formed a successful partnership with Rivaldo, and won the 1998 and 1999 Spanish La Liga championship and the 1998 Copa del Rey.

Kluivert played for the Dutch national team from 1994 to 2004, and with 40 goals from 79 appearances was their highest goalscorer until surpassed by Robin van Persie in 2013. He was selected for three European Championships and the 1998 FIFA World Cup, and was the joint top scorer at Euro 2000 where he scored 5 times.

In 2004, he was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 greatest living footballers chosen by Pelé as part of FIFA’s centenary observances.

He was humble and happy and a joy to talk to ..and yes he signed my shirt ,cap and book
