If you’re a Rocker and/or a Blues lover, get your groove on for electrifying Blues & Rock will join forces again at HILLCREST QUARRY in Durbanville on Saturday the 9th of April.
Featuring 9 Bands in a huge Marquee on a big stage with 30000 watts of sonic power, this year`s event is set to be a magnificent blast at one of the most incredible live music venues in SA. One of the highlights of the show will be the official (Cape Town) launch of Dan Patlansky’s brand new album ‘Introvertigo’. Patlansky says of the new album: “Fans can expect a unique brand of Blues Rock born out of guitar playing whilst striving for strong songwriting. I am very excited and proud of this album, and honestly feel this is my best release to date.” Patlansky has just completed a hugely successful 2 month European Tour with the incredible Joe Satriani and he has gained huge recognition overseas including being voted as one of the Top Ten best Rock guitarists in the world today.
Another great addition to this year`s line up is Crimson House. Grassroots, soul lifting, foot-stomping, heartmoving audio candy, built on a brotherhood that will outlive the timelessness of music they create. The music will take you back a century and right into the modern age within the same bar-line. Rooted in blues, coated in gypsy undertones, blended with early Jazz fuelled by roaring guitars, blazing Brass, sensational saxophones, shredding Banjos, & soul sweeping Harmonica’s, lead by a gravel paved voice coming out of a hard worked soul.
Needing no introduction, the line up also includes the Gerald Clark Trio, The Blues Broers and Mark Haze among others. Don’t miss out on one of the best live concerts of the year!
