It is now the Garden Theatre that will come alive with the sound of talent
Language Monument’s ‘Amfi-Konsert’draws Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels, Paxton & Sean D Band and Jak de Priester
The Paarl Mountain and iconic Language Monument will be South Africa’s sound headquarters on 6 April 2018 with amongst others Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels, Paxton & Sean D Band as well as Jak de Priester who will fire up the evening at the Boland’s first ‘Amfi-Konsert’. These super successful artists will be preceded by emerging stars such as No Swett Band, Soulsound Live Band and Elwira Standili while the humorous MC, Uncle Cal, will ensure that this unique evening runs smoothly.
Due to logistical reasons, the concert now moves from the Amphitheatre to the Garden Theatre a few hundred metres further, at the foot of the monument. Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels has been an Afropop and reggae sensation for decades and played at amongst others Paul Simon’s and Gloria Estefan’s concerts while Paxton won last year’s ‘Idols’ competition, is releasing her first album shortly and was chosen to perform in front of the Swedish queen. Jak de Priester is a singer, author and TV personality with eight albums and a poetry collection up his sleeve. MC Uncle Cal is a DJ legend that will make any audience laugh with his quirky humour and exuberant behaviour.
In the lead-up No Swett, a dynamic four-part vocal group, Soulsound Live, who interprets a wide range of genres on five instruments, as well as Elwira Standili, whose honeyed vocals were heard on ‘Idols’, will perform. Guests can also look forward to a wonderful atmosphere at the intimate Garden Theatre with its beautiful view of the Boland’s valleys and mountains. Various affordable food stalls and a beer tent will be available to cater for any food and beverage needs. The pre-program starts at 18:30 on Friday evening and the main artists will appear on the stage from 20:00.
