Stone Jets kicked off the evening, getting everyone into the mood with their funky tunes. Given and Manfred are two of the nicest guys on the planet. If ever there was a man born for the stage, it is Given – The man of many faces. I remember watching him perform “Don’t Stop Me Now’ by Queen, one night at The Waiting Room – he made everyone sit up and take note ! Manfred, Given’s accompaniment, has a serene presence – the combo are a hit.

It is said, different personalities attract – two stars collided and a brighter star has come to light. 

From beginning to end, they entertained the audience, bringing smiles and laughter to every face. Thank you Stone Jets for always bringing it!


Cape Town band, Stone Jets are building a fan base across South Africa with their fresh, unique brand of Afro Pop Rock.
Formed in 2013, the band have released two EPs, namely River and What I Say, and performed alongside the likes of Hugh Masekela and Majozi. They’ve performed on national television SABC 3’s Expresso Morning Show and SABC 2’s Hectic Nine-9, as well as appearing on some of South Africa’s biggest festival stages.

After a short break, James & James took to the stage.

I first had the opportunity of watching them at the Baxter Theatre for the Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Festival.  They form part of a band called Blacksmith. What a hit! From then to now, I have had the absolute privilege of watching them play with Jennifer Eaves on a few occasions. Wherever and whenever they play, they tug at the heartstrings of their audience. With James Harvey on accordion and harp  and James Hall on violin, they wowed us. A special highlight of the evening, was when Jennifer joined them for a couple of songs. The trio are multi-talented, bringing sounds that are unique, harmonious, thrilling and sweet to those who will hear;  multi talented in many spectrums of music and instruments, these guys are sheer brilliance.

To me, their music transports me to another world – -taking me to that other place, where only music and beauty exist.

Biography –

Jenny & The Jameses, a trio consisting of Jennifer Eaves (guitar, vocals), James Hall (fiddle and vocals), and James Harvey (harp, accordion, upright bass, vocals), play a variety of folk songs (most of which are written by Jenny herself) and traditional tunes. Covers of pop songs are also performed, adapted for a three-person acoustic lineup.
A highly mobile and flexible band; their laid-back and fun playing style, combined with a repertoire of a mixture of pensive folk songs and high-octane reels and jigs, makes every performance an engaging, intimate rollercoaster.
