Rocking the coast

23 September 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Do you love rock music? Then you should not miss Swakop Rocks!

This exciting new addition on the Namibian music calendar takes place on Saturday (28 September) at the Swakopmund Football Club (SFC) and promises to be an amazing event.

The headliner for the event is the South African band Kirality.

Having performed in Namibia before, the Cape Town-based band enjoys a niche fan base. This 3-piece rock band love paying tribute to great musicians and bands that changed the face of music history. “We love nothing more than delivering energetic performances to our audiences,” the group consisting of Craig Vee (guitar & vocals), Steph Nortje (drums) and Warren Wazman (bass & vocals) says.

To add to the flavour, three Namibian rock bands also take to the stage on Saturday: First up is Gasoline – a band that needs no introduction. Gasoline is a classic rock cover band that has been keeping rock alive in Namibia for the past 20 years. Then follows Small Town Tramp and Project Mothball.

Small Town Tramp started out in 2009 and is also well-known in the Namibian rock scene. Consisting of singer/guitarist PD Stoman (Mojo Blues Electric Band) and bassist Sigi Mueller (Arcana XXII), they love performing good ol’ rock ’n roll, along with drummer Chris De Chavonnes-Vrugt (Multisonus). Their style is a blend of grungy alternative rock that is best listened to at high volumes. With Chris currently living in Cape Town while completing his studies, Anesh Morar (Penilane) steps in as drummer for the Tramps. Thomas Bokemuller has also joined the band as lead guitarist.

The concert is organised by Project Mothball, a Swakopmund-based hard rock band.

Project Mothball consists of lead singer Holger Kleyenstüber, lead guitarist Karl-Andre Terblanche, guitarist Rob da Silva, bassist Kyle Cyriax, drummer Luigi Lopes and Erwin Leuschner who plays the accordion. With their unique style, the group recently released their first single and music video “Dark Shadows”. The video is available for viewing on their website www.projectmothball.com as well as on Facebook. Terblanche’s skills also feature in his newest project, Checkered Synergy together with talented local singer Angelique Punzul.

Tickets are available in advance at the SFC, Swakopmunder Buchhandlung, Café Anton as well as Take Note Music at N$100. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Have a Heart Spay and Neuter Project, who will also be making delicious food during the course of the event.

Doors open at 18:00 and the concert starts at 18:45.

The organisers are very grateful to all sponsors who have made this event possible.
