The 4th annual BLOOD BROTHERS event returns to Pretoria on the 29th of September and will be held at the Platteland venue.
This year’s event sees a super-group of SA musicians joining forces in support of The Vrede Foundation, to generate awareness and raise funds to provide financial aid to young South Africans with cancer.
11 musicians have been meticulously selected, with old favourites being joined by some of the country’s most exciting young songwriters and performers.
The full artist line-up for Blood Brothers 2018 looks a little like this:
· Adelle Nqeto
· Ard Matthews (Just Jinjer)
· Chris van der Walt (The Black Cat Bones)
· Francois van Coke (Fokofpolisiekar)
· Hanu De Jong (The Narrow / Not My Dog)
· Alessandro Benigno (Hellcats)
· Warwick Rautenbach (Hellcats)
· Jaco Mans (Coelacanth)
· Jason Oosthuizen (Lost&Found)
· Jedd Kossew (Van Coke Kartel)
· Laudo Liebenberg (aKING)
For his fourth year running, SA rock royalty Francois van Coke leads the charge alongside fellow alumni, Hanu De Jong, Jason Oosthuizen, Jaco Mans and Chris Van Der Walt.
For their first time, vocalists Laudo Liebenberg, as well as Ard Matthews join the BLOOD BROTHERS line-up alongside destroyer of six strings, Jedd Kossew, and the woman who keeps it all together – songwriter extraordinaire, Adelle Nqeto.
To top it all off, Hellcats, arguably the most exciting rock ’n’ roll band to come out of SA in years, are joining the fray and will open the show.
Over the course of three hours, the BLOOD BROTHERS will play originals from their respective bands as well as rock anthems that have inspired them over the years.
