Musically speaking…

My band and I went to Durban – Sibaya Casino to be precise. We were fortunate to have Dan Chiorboli play percussion with us on the night. Dan is the youngest person to ever play percussion for the KZN Philharmonic. Ian Henderson opened the show with 30-minutes of fantastic music from his albums. The audience was great and Connie’s sax solos went down really well. We tried to bring you some pics of the show but, by Magde’s own admission and in her own words, “I was so mesmerised I dropped the camera”. Oops… this is what we were able to salvage…

Krakatoa reminds me of the old theatres and opera houses – it is a multi-storey semi-circle. The first and second floor have deep oval booths all along the walls. The one advantage of that is that you can’t see the audience so you don’t know if the place is full or empty until the house lights come up (this is where you’re supposed to laugh). My thanks to Neil Peters and Gateway Music – Neil sponsored all our musical equipment – and I’m not just talking demo equipment – a lot of it was out of the box. You can find Neil and Gateway Music in Gateway Shopping Centre near the rock-climbing wall.
