Marmalade Productions & Alistair Izobell Productions presents “Rocking the City 2017” Down Memory Lane

29th July 2017 at GrandWest

Featuring: Dawnay, MarcAlex, The Boyz, Da Ballies & Essential

Marmalade Productions & Alistair Izobell Productions present yet another music spectacular show this winter. This time Rocking the City 2017 will take you on a trip down memory lane and remind you of the good times.  Both established music promoters, both brands giving value to their audience, both creating opportunities for young and upcoming stars and giving our legends a fresh platform. They have produced spectacular shows over the years which include: Divas, Divos and Duets, Music Alla Kaap and have included major international artists and the best South African music on their line ups. Between the two companies, over 200 000 fans have experienced their brand of success.

Rocking the City 2017 will feature: Dawnay, MarcAlex, The Boyz, Da Ballies & Essential. The best Cape Town musicians will support this stellar line-up.

Dawnay:  In a career that has spanned over thirty years, Dawnay is a respected artist, a much-loved live performer, songwriter, singer, producer and musician – with the rare combination of drums and vocals remaining his first passion. His first single, “U Touch Me” achieved massive success and paved the way for many follow-up singles – “High … Oops Baby”, “You’re my World”, the solid groove club anthem, “The Real Thing”, “My Baby Tonight” and “Coon Carnival”.  He has opened for many international stars and received many accolades including a SAMA nomination for Best Pop Album.

MarcAlex: Brothers born and raised in Soweto, their love of music started at a very young age. Always believing in themselves after many disappointments, created their iconic South African hit song “Quick Quick”, which took them to the top of the charts on all radio stations around the country. They later went on to win an OKTV (now SAMA) award for Best New Comer/ Group with this incredible song. MarcAlex then signed to an international label giving them the opportunity to work with the best producers. The brothers spent years performing around the world horning their craft. They took some time out and started a successful management and events company. But, music will always be their first love. MarcAlex have been hard at work writing and producing their first album in years.

Alistair Izobell Productions Presents:

Soli Philander’s “Nice Coat” (Lekker Jas!)

17th – 29th July

Baxter Theatre

Soli Philander’s ‘Nice Coat’ is about – as he puts it – HIS Cape Town.

Born out of a desire for a narrative about Cape Town – the place of his birth, his youth, his heart – that didn’t serve a political agenda, wasn’t an exercise in attracting tourists, and did not disregard the daily, stark realities so many Capetonians in surviving must embrace.

Fuelled by the desire not to defend or deflect accusations levelled at The Mother City – her detractors on the inside and out – or wallow in the praise and pride from those enamoured by her, but rather to provide another view, another ‘take’, another conversation about the place he calls home, and his experience of it.

Philander is adamant about the unique ‘sound’ of Cape Town – ‘there is a rhythm to it, a beat’ – that he maintains is the essence of ‘being Capetonian’. In his observations about, his criticism of, his tribute to the place he calls home, he seamlessly plays with word and intonation, idiom and phrase, rhyme and reason, to engage mind, memory and emotion in a delicately-humoured, hour-long rhyme.

When asked ‘why?’ about the rhyme, Soli responded: ‘I didn’t realize for a long time that the instinctive love I have for rhyming is cultural – from the games we made up as children, the secret languages we invented as teens, the delightful playing with words of the hawkers, and even organized crime’s penchant for inventing new words or new meanings for existing ones’

2017 VARSITY SHIELD FINAL, Aidynn Cupido Captain of UWC receives the Varsity Shield trophy  during the Final between UWC and UFH presented by Steinhoff, FNB and STEERS. Monday, 10 APRIL 2017 at UWC Sport ground, Cape Town.  FNB UWC vs FNB UFH at UWC  Photo by: LUIGI BENNETTE/SASPA

2017 VARSITY SHIELD FINAL, Aidynn Cupido Captain of UWC receives the Varsity Shield trophy during the Final between UWC and UFH presented by Steinhoff, FNB and STEERS. Monday, 10 APRIL 2017 at UWC Sport ground, Cape Town.

The crowd came out in numbers to witness this year’s Varsity Shield final at the UWC Sports Grounds in Bellville, Cape Town as their team powered past FNB UFH 45-2 to claim the 2017 Varsity Shield title.

On a warm evening in Cape Town it was the home team who took the lead in the first minute through centre Michaine Fick after great play on the wing. Not long after, Herschel Jantjies added a second in the ninth minute to give his side an early 13-0 lead after the second try was converted by Aidynn Cupido. The home side kept piling on the pressure and came close to adding another try when Andre Manuel was tackled just a few metres shy of the tryline.

FNB UWC were strong in defence and the visitors struggled to threaten their opponents’ tryline. The frustration surfaced when the two teams were involved a miniature bust-up in the middle of the park but no player was sent off as the referee did not deem it a malicious brawl. The contest took another turn in favour of the home side when Herschel Jantjies sold a dummy to dot the ball right under the posts after a strong scrum from his team. FNB UFH added pressure on the buzzer but a strong defence from FNB UWC saw them hold on to their 13-0 lead going into the break.

The half time team talk must have been a stern one as FNB UFH got their first points just a minute into the half. Flyhalf Sergio Christian got his team’s scoreboard ticking when he scored a penalty. The try seemed to recharge the FNB UWC mission as the boys from Cape Town hit back through a try from substitute Ishmaeel Schroder to extend their lead to 29-2. Continue reading
