SITTER, FLAT STANLEY AND JOSIE FIELD (article first published : 2007-10-24)

For a great night of live South African music, head to Krakatoa at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom on November 1 for another of the hugely popular Sitter & Friends shows. This time the Durban rockers will be joined by Johannesburg singer/songwriter Josie Field and Cape Town’s Flat Stanley in a line-up that looks set to once again draw capacity crowds to this ultra-chic venue.

First up is seven-piece melodic rock outfit Flat Stanley, whose latest single Paper Thin is currently playlisted on radio stations around South Africa. Showing a different side of their musicianship, Sitter will then perform an acoustic set of their powerful pop rock songs before Josie Field ends the evening with the captivating acoustic sound that is all her own. A firm favourite at the 2007 Splashy Fen and White Mountain music festivals, this relative newcomer is fast putting her stamp on the local music scene with her extraordinary songwriting talent and incredible vocal ability.

Doors open at 19h30 and patrons are advised to get there early to avoid disappointment! Tickets R30 and can be bought on the night, with a limited number of advance tickets available from Sibaya’s ticket office on 031 580 5555.

Sitter have been kept busy over the past few months with regular performances not only at Krakatoa but also at Absa Boktown in Durban where their newest offering, a song titled Breaking the Barrier, quickly became a firm crowd favourite. A tribute to the Springboks and the dedicated rugby supporters behind them, the song follows South Africa’s road to the 2007 Rugby World Cup final which ended in glory for South Africa.

Recorded at the request of Bok skipper, John Smit, Breaking the Barrier was also used by the squad as part of their motivational build-up to their Rugby World Cup games. For free download visit www.sitter.co.za
