BURLESQUE SUPERGROUP (article first published : 2003-04-17)

Richard Walne & the Burlesque Supergroup in concert at the BAT Centre.

The Burlesque Supergroup was conceived last year as an offering to the Splashy Fen crowd and anyone there will surely remember this. Richard will be known as either a song-maker, jazz instrumentalist, rocker, crooner or, as with The Burlesque Supergroup, frontsman for this thumping big band. As an eleven-piece, it descends in an even bigger sound, featuring full brass and backing-singer sections as well as one of the most colourful rhythm sections about, all playing Richard's compositions.

A guest appearance amongst Richard's songs will be the mad and sagacious Belgian, Doc Paul Nijs, doing one of his songs.

Richard Walne & The Burlesque Supergroup features Richard Walne, Paul Nijs, Gugu Ntshengu, Helen Walne and Hlalo Mbatha on vocals. Also appearing are Jochen Zeller (guitar), Grant Emmerich (drums); Andrew Arbuckle, David Maigh and Murray McKinlay (horns), Michael Torlese (piao) and Roly Struckmeyer (bass).

The concert takes place on April 19 at TransAfrica Express at the BAT Centre at 20h00. Entrance is free but donations would be appreciated to help with petrol costs.

The group is presenting this concert as a final dress rehearsal for their appearance at this year’s Splashy Fen festival which takes from April 24 to 28. Check outwww.splashyfen.co.za for more info on the festival.
