ROCKY RIDGE MUSIC (article first published : 2003-06-13)

The Rocky Ridge Restaurant & Accommodation outlet in Fascadale Road, Ramsgate, will present a live music programme for the next month or so.

On June 16 (public holiday Youth Day), Rocky Ridge will host Zwakala, the resident band at the historic Rainbow Jazz Club in Pinetown for the past three months, where they perform every Thursday and Friday.

The core of the group comprises five musicians from Clermont: Lucky Gidigidi on electric piano, Welcome Magugula on keyboards, Magiza Shange on bass, Thabani Luthuli on drums and "Tanana" Gasa on guitar. For this special Youth Day performance they will be joined by hot new 16 year old vocalist Zama Nxumalo who came to light as a guest of the band at the Rainbow. Also added to the line-up for this performance is ace saxophonist Bheki Luthuli. Zwakala's original material ranges from Zulu blues (with a Southern twist) to instrumental afro-jazz. Their repertoire also includes such classics as Hugh Masekela's soulful Stimela, to this past summers massive pop hit from Mafikizolo, Ndihambanawe.

Afro Blue featuring Susan Barry on keyboard, Philani Ngidi on bass and Jerry Kunene on alto and tenor sax will be a major attraction on June 29.

On July 27, Rocky Ridge hosts another popular group - Error Nine, with George Mari (Trumpet) and Roland Moses (Piano).

Tickets R30. Doors open at 11h00 and the first sets starts at 14h00. More information or bookings on 039 314 4660.
