BAT TUESDAY PRESENTATIONS (article first published : 2003-02-16)

Neil Comfort, who owns Pinetown's famous Rainbow Restaurant and Jazz Club with his wife Nicola, has joined forces with the BAT Centre and TransAfrica Express (now run by Guy Wood and Beanbag Bohemia management) to bring music lovers the best the country has to offer.

A particular focus of Neil's energies is fostering the growth of KZN musicians - many of whom have all it takes to achieve stardom but have simply lacked a platform to showcase their skills and the guidance to develop their talent to the full.

Neil is offering up-and-coming musicians and groups the chance to show him what they can do, with a view to performing at the BAT Centre. He will be available at the BAT every Tuesday from 13h00 to 17h00 to meet with interested parties.

"The Music on the Deck sessions at the BAT are hugely popular," says Neil. "While jazz is a strong focus, we will also be showcasing a wide range of other musical styles. The Friday session from 17h00 will be dedicated to performances by emerging groups from the Greater Durban area. These groups will perform traditional SA styles (maskanda, mbaqanga, folk/roots, etc) as well as contemporary jazz, afro-jazz, reggae and more."

The Sunday session from 15h00 is reserved for established KZN artists, who are also invited to contact Neil on 083 463 8044 or 031 702 9161.
