This year, visitors to the Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv, can enjoy fine wines and delectable gourmet foods whilst relaxing to the sounds of jazz, blues, bluegrass and folk music.
Organisers are bringing back old favourites as well as some brand new entertainment to the kykNET Leefstyl Plein.
Back by popular demand are Wildsfees veterans, the Bayside Blues Band. This will be one of the last opportunities for fans to see this lively group of musos on stage as one of the members is moving overseas.
Boasting a combined musical experience of more than 100 years, the Bayside Blues Band brings new life to old blues tunes like Crossroads, Hoochie Coochie Man and Let the Good Times Roll. Busting the myth that blues are for sulking after love gone bad the Bayside Blues Band are known to get the dance floor filled with people forgetting about the cares of life. Don’t miss them live at the kykNET Leefstyl Plein on Saturday, 30 June at noon.
This year, a new addition to the kykNET Leefstyl Plein is the Silver Creek Mountain Band. The group has been performing throughout the country for over 30 years with a mixture of original folk, blues, and bluegrass songs. They will be performing on Saturday, 30 June at one in the afternoon.
Headlining the Saturday entertainment from eleven in the morning are two of South Africa’s most accomplished songwriters, Les Javan and Riku Latti. The duo describe their performance as “stories and music of love and grief, sorrow and joy; on being human, and its unique implications for different souls.”
Javan’s songs have been performed by iconic artists such as David Kramer, Anton Goosen and Karen Zoid.
The Saturday lineup at the kykNET Leefstyl Plein is not to be missed!
The Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv takes place from Friday, June 29, to Sunday, July 1.
