Raoul and Black Friday: Raoul Roux as front man and Lead Guitarist is electrifying! One of SA’s most loved Blues Bands!

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.
Sub-Urban Roots: Expect acoustic vibes laden with congas and other sorted percussion. Local sounds laid down by two true raconteurs!!!
Hoot ‘n Anny: Think June Carter and Johnny Cash with a South African Flavour
With so few live music venues left in Johannesburg, Randlords is a welcome addition for fans and bands alike.
Randlords: the most exclusive music venue in Johannesburg is perfectly perched at the highest point in Braamfontein and is a beautiful rooftop bar and lounge venue, located on the 22nd floor of South Point Towers.
