MUSIC IN THE HILLS THIS WEEK
Time: 7pm, R25 entry, food and soft drinks available, BYOB, visit www.mith.co.za for more details and directions.
DIRECTIONS TO MiTH:
Take the N3 to Hilton, take the Hilton turnoff and go South into the Village (away from Hilton College). Travel 5,2km along Hilton Avenue (past two sets of traffic lights and Old Main Brewery) and keep going straight as Hilton Avenue turns into Dennis Shepstone Drive. At the 5,2km mark, Knoll Drive will be on your right – the entrance to MiTH is the *second* entrance on your left into The Knoll Historic Guest Farm. (Dennis Shepstone Drive is currently under heavy construction – so please be very cautious.)
7pm - Open Mic
Toni Hemming is a learner from Grace College, who makes her first appearance at MiTH. She plays piano and has a lilting yet forceful vocal quality that will capture you. We’re very glad Toni has chosen to make an appearance at Hilton’s favourite music club.
7:30pm - Nosi Zulu
Our newlywed TV Idols star, who was also one of two recipients of MiTH sponsorship last year, Nosi Zulu is a music student at UKZN with an incredible voice and buckets and buckets of talent on the keys as well. We are very excited to have her back at MiTH this coming week. Seriously not to be missed.
8pm - St John & Tanya
Some of our favourite musicians here in the Midlands of KZN. Tanya leaves her heart on the stage - the utter abandon with which she delivers jazz standards, jazz not-so-standards and soulful ballad covers has left MiTH members tearful on more than one occasion. She lives and breathes every lyric. St John, in his unique, quiet way, provides a perfect foil for Tanya with smooth and evocative keyboard work and a raspy vocal that is as surprising as it is visceral. Their talent is undoubted and self-evident. Their impassioned performances, however, are clearly a function of deep pools of emotion.
9pm - Jack Mantis Band
Led by Jack, the musician, graffiti artist, adventurer and soul-searcher, the Jack Mantis Band has been at MiTH several times - following extensive tours across the US and Europe last year, and having travelled SA in the last few months, this gifted poet-songwriter and his band bring their unique style of Gypsy Rock to the MiTH stage. They will be joined by MiTH’s own Nishalin Pillay! His stage personality is legend. Don't miss out on the opportunity to see one of South Africa's top talents - right here in Hilton. Here's a taste for you, one from German television, and the other a music video of his track, "Lovely Honestly":
MiTH is a semi-open mic music club. An opportunity for musicians to share the joy of their music with a friendly audience which includes fellow musicians – who have all “been there” too. (Non-musicians welcome too!) Whether you’re a newbie looking for your first opportunity to perform publicly, or a more experienced / mature musician simply looking for people who are as passionate about music as you are – come along and join us!
