LOUIS MHLANGA AT RAINBOW (article first published : 2004-12-26)

The Rainbow Restaurant & Jazz Club in Pinetown will host a concert by the Louis Mhlanga Band on January 2.

“To start off the New Year we are going to feature the fantastic Louis Mhlanga Band,” says Rainbow’s co-owner Neil Comfort. “I have always rated Louis as one of the finest guitarists around and when offered the opportunity of hosting him in Durban over the New Year, I just couldn't resist.”

The line-up features long time collaborators Basi Mahlasela on percussion and Sello Montwedi (ex-Sankomota) on drums, with newcomers Micheal Phillips on bass guitar and Randall Skitters on keyboards.

“All five musos feature on vocals so expect a full sound,” adds Neil. “Expect rumba, Zimbabwean style, with a strong South African influence.”

Doors open at 12h00 with the first set commencing at 13h00. Tickets R35 (either at the door or booked). The Rainbow Restaurant & Jazz Club is situated at 23 Stanfield Lane in Pinetown. More information on 031 702 9161 or 083 463 8044

The Louis Mhlanga Band will also perform at the Upstage Jazz Cafe, The Playhouse complex, on January 1 at 20h00. Tickets R40 (at the door or booked). Information or bookings on 031 369 9566 or 083 630 8981
