ARTISTS & BANDS:
- Cleo – This vivacious and brilliant 11 year-old singer made it into the Top 5 of “SA’s Got Talent”, impressing the judges with her awesome voice and her warm personality. She has since performed for Corporate, Charity and Public Clients to great acclaim. One of her highlights was performing for Sir Richard Branson, who was so impressed that he invited Cleo to perform at his daughter’s wedding! Unfortunately, time was too short to arrange the trip, but Cleo recorded a video which was shown at the wedding.
- The Magicians – The Magicians is made up of our 4-piece “resident band” – who also happen to be Bra Hugh Masekela’s touring band – and up to four of SA’s most loved singers. People like Rami Chuene, Timothy Moloi, Nelda Jansen van Rensburg, Adrian Poulsen, Bianca le Grange and Andrew Webster are just a few of the great performers that make this collaboration far greater than the sum of its parts!
- Monde & The Magicians – Monde Msutwana came third in this year’s “SA Idols”! Monde is a phenomenal singer & performer with enormous cross-over appeal. Before Idols shone a spotlight on MM’s talents, he performed in many varied shows for S&G and he is still available as one of our brightest stars… Whether solo with our fantastic 4-piece band or including the back-up talents of Rami and Nelda, Monde & The Magicians will rock any gathering!
