MiTH Line up for 19 June
9pm - • Mali Zulu •
Led by Malibongwe Zulu himself, MALIZULU is a pop/folk duo from Pietermaritzburg. We have been together for three years as an independent band and close friends. We pride ourselves with our talents as we are all self taught. This makes room for a lot of creativity. We have original songs and we do covers (With a MALIZULU twist) as well. This has caught a lot of attention and has made the brand grow much quicker.
8pm - Scrapyard Junkies (featuring Summer du Preez)
Scrapyard Junkies consists of a bunch of unmentionables who started jamming together at the notorious Thistle Hotel (aka Boshoff St Country Club). Junkies live sets usually include original indy tunes, covers from mid 20th century jazz standards through post-punk and grunge to contemporary indie-rock, and improvised jams to keep everyone on edge. The Junkies also, and uniquely, have a specialist tambourine player formerly known as 'the swish'.
7:30 - W.I.S.H.
7pm - Shelley McLean Music Pupils
W.I.S.H. is an initiative set up by well-known Durban performer Shelley McLean - it is a vocal class offered to all women who have a 'song in their hearts.' Shelley identified a gap in the music world, for the many people who loved singing at school or at university, but now find themselves without an outlet for sharing their singing passion. After receiving several requests for private singing lessons, McLean decided to head up a group vocal class, one that would enable singers to learn more about the technical aspects of singing as well as explore the delights of singing in harmony, while increasing their repertoire. This Durban group has steadily grown over the past 7 years and the Hilton W.I.S.H group, which has been running for just short of a year, has been rehearsing hard for the upcoming debut performance at MiTH. Joining them on stage are five of Shelley’s music students as well as ex Drakie, Hayden Everill, who was McLean’s teaching colleague. An honest offering of musical joy.
MiTH is located at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm, Knoll Drive, Hilton. Doors open at 6 pm and the music will kick off at 7 pm. Entrance is R40 at the door.
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!
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 Crossways Pub) 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.
