Among others you will hear a new composition by Douglas
Armstrong, an modern African groove piece called The Man with the
Hat, as well as some of Hanepoot's arrangements of SA jazz classics
by the likes of Errol Dyers, Zakes Nkosi, Dollar Brand, Chris
McGregor, Hugh Masekela and originals composed for the Biggish
Band by Merton Barrow, David Ledbetter, Douglas Armstrong,
'Hanepoot' and others.
The music includes Cape Town goema, Jo'burg marabi, trad big band
swing ... and even a tango!
The Silvertree Restaurant is a great venue
with naturally good sound, and the restaurant has an excellent menu.
The Biggish Band performed here 2 years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed
the evening -- this early evening Sunday dinner slot is extremely
"gesellig" and is just the way to finish off the weekend in a
groovily relaxed way, listening to purely South African Big Band
Jazz, featuring solists such as Jannie "Hanepoot van Tonder" on the trombone, Chris Tokalon on tenor sax, George Werner
on piano and Jasper "Dzespa" Cook also on trombone.
Tickets for Sunday's
gig are R90, which includes a glass of wine, soup & bread!
Booking is essential on 021-762-9585.
The restaurant is open from 18h00 and the show starts at 18h45.
