Rustic Pearl Event Venue and Restaurant hosts a music festival on Saturday (27 November) welcoming local singing sensations.

Musicians taking to the stage include NAMA nominated artist Joharetha Nel, Len Nel, Leon Jacobs, Amy Botes, Wouter de Bruyn, Bella Lusse as well as the man behind the scenes – Jo Nichol and his band.

Jo said that the idea of the festival is to get everyone together to enjoy some good music. “There’s going to be a jumping castle for the littles ones, something to eat and a great atmosphere. We will start with the live music at 12:00 and it will continue until about 23:00.”

Very popular at Rustic Pearl is a Karaoke Night, which resulted in a competition that started in September and spanned over five Wednesdays. “Each night we had a mystery judge, including myself, who judged the performances. There were 13 participants at the start of the competition and they had to participate in karaoke nights at least three of the four Wednesdays to qualify for the final,” he explained.

There were eventually four winners crowned. In first place was Zhane Hardnick, followed by Joy Lewis, Zandri van Niekerk in third and Corne Bredenhann in fourth position.
The winners walked away with N$2500 (first), N$1 250 (second), N$750 (third) and N$500 (fourth). “Various sponsors made the cash incentives possible. The judges for the final evening were Titus Cloete (musician), Chris Theron (Kanaal 7 radio presenter) and Joharetha Nel (musician). The competition was open to all ages and we are definitely going to host the competition again next year.”

Jo added that he was surprised by the participants’ musical talent. “The competition was tight in terms of the talent that we saw on stage. We are very excited to see what next year will bring.”
Although the competition has concluded, Karaoke Night still happens at the Rustic Pearl every Wednesday. “Entrance is free, so let’s get singing.”
