Androgenius is a 5-piece outfit comprised of Al Clapper (vocalist and front man), Alex Mayers (bassist and arranger), Jarryd West (drummer), Michael Wilson-Trollip (synth/keyboard) and Callum Macdonald (guitarist).
Their sound fuses R&B and soul with hip hop, funk, and jazz to create a feeling they've aptly dubbed 'soul hop'.While their sound carries a strong jazz undertone, the different musical backgrounds that the various band members come from allow their sound a certain malleability suited to the occasion and/or venue.
Their repertoire includes an original set as well as a large selection of jazz standards over the ages through R&B classics and current pop chart toppers.
20:00 – 21:00
Cape Town based Singer-Songwriter Lance Herman is releasing cinematic, dreamy pop songs; the latest of which Saturn depicts a gloomy love song given voice by Lance's distinctive, wistful singing and vivid lyricism.
Lance teams up with Lamar Bonhomme to bring the Saturn Music Video to life, which will be previewed on the V&A Amphitheatre Screen following his performance. Lance's live show itself, a multi-disciplinary, visual & audio treat, takes the audience on an impressionistic tour of Cape Town as seen through the lens of its supra-modern Youth protagonists.
The video art is brought to the stage in collaboration with 10 Ball Productions and Orms Direct. Lance plays on the night with a team of electrifying local musicians including Nicholas Williams (Keys), Jonno Sweetman (Drums) and Alex Mayers (Bass).
