On Saturday, 22nd June The Local Element in Association with Music Connection and Arcade Empire will be hosting The Blues Fever Fest 6 Featuring some of South Africa’s Top Blues, Blues/Rock and Country Artists. This stellar line-up includes SA Blues legend Albert Frost (Blues Broers), 2013 MK Best Live Act in South Africa Award Winners The Black Cat Bones, 2 times Balcony TV Global Chart winners Raoul and Black Friday , the unstoppable female in the mix Natalie Chapman, arguably one of the best female vocalist/song writers in the country brings her Country/Blues Vibes, the young blood Andy Fisher Band, crowd favourite The Fake Leather Blues Band (celebrating 10 years together) and a host of other blues guest artists.
The day will run from 17h00 to late. Guests are warned: The Fever will get you!
The Black Cat Bones: Voted 2013 MK Best Live Act in South Africa for a Reason! Their live performances will blow you away!
Raoul and Black Friday: Raoul Roux as front man and Lead Guitarist is electrifying! One of SA’s most loved Blues Bands!
Albert Frost: If South Africa has such a thing as rock royalty, it's Albert Frost.
Albert is an all-round master guitarist with a passion for music that reflects happiness over any audience and for lovers of all genres – he effects success into the albums of many artists and is loved by crowds all over the world.
Natalie Chapman: When listening to her vocals, you might get the feeling that you have discovered a delightful sonic recipe: Take a little bit of Melissa Etheridge, mix in a blend of Beth Hart and Adele, add a dollop of Nina Simone and sprinkle with a dash of Joni Mitchell and you are close to recreating her distinctive voice.
A night of blistering blues presented by Top Live acts that are known for firing things up with their ridiculously energetic performances and talent!
Arcade Empire: Fast becoming THE place to hear live music in Pretoria.
