OLD FRIENDS

View Biography

We are all part of a band called Wroxeter but we also operate as Duo’s. Mark and Stuart perform as an acoustic Duo under the Wroxeter banner, but more recently they’ve teamed up with Eddy, a fantastic bass guitarist and we’ve reformed into a new band called OldFriends. Stuart is the singer and guitarist while Eddy adds bass along with backing and/or acoustic sounds.

Our music is a little different from that of the other band we perform as, but generally we do old school, rock ‘n roll, acoustic covers from the 70’s-90’s and more recent pop music.

SONKIND

View Biography

SONKIND is originally from the West Coast, Langebaan area. We do laidback acoustic style music, making use of guitars, harmonicas, some percussion, head-turning vocals and a loop station. We believe in making authentic music and make no use of backtracks.

Our range spreads from Bob Dylan, Pink floyd, Ed sheeran, Tracy Chapman, Beatles, Cat Stevens, Cranberries, Led Zeppelin, Jack Johnson, a lot of Blues and all that Jazz.

We also do a few Afrikaans songs if the crowd pleads, but more than anything we wait for the moment to contribute 3 or 4 original track to the set.

In our 6 week stretch in the Helderberg area we have been booked at Lourensford Market, Middelvlei Wine Estate, Root44, Thirsty Oyster, Vergenoegd, 99 on beach, Chello’s, Ye Olde Bell and a few more.

We do many corporate functions and love weddings. We specialize in events where families are present such as Markets.

With almost 40 years of musical performance experience each, Doppler Effect delivers the live ambience that comes from putting a great singer/guitar player together with a real drummer for that full band feeling, but with a small footprint.
