Well-known Durban jazz personality Melvin Peters will appear at Botha’s Hill before departing for Sweden. He performs with Bongani Sokhela and Shaun Peterson at the popular Bella Vista functions venue (see separate story), offering a programme of mainstream jazz to delight all jazz lovers.

Melvin Peters began as a classical pianist and discovered his love for jazz whilst at University. Trained by Darius Brubeck he has recently performed in the United States with Dave Brubeck and toured the United Kingdom.

Bongani on bass has also performed in the United States and Cuba and is much in demand in local jazz circles. Shaun Peterson (son of well-known Roy Peterson) is a self-taught drummer whose forte is fusion and swing.

They will perform every Tuesday throughout the coming month - February 6, 13, 20 and 27. Tickets R85 pp includes a two-course meal. Space is limited so booking is essential. Phone Jane on (031) 765-1516.
