The Bandits performing at Musicians club

2008-03-07 00:00

This week the Bandits will be performing at the Maritzburg Musicians’ Club, with a newly formed blues outfit as the support act.

The Bandits are a bluegrass band that plays predominantly traditional American bluegrass music with some lively country music thrown in. Recently the band has been playing some commonly known songs and arranging them to suit their own instruments, such as numbers from Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Eagles. The band consists of Bryan Eaton (banjo and vocals), Craig Martins (guitar and vocals), Cara Malan (fiddle) and Chris Bester (bass and harmonies). The band has been performing since 2001.

Robynne, the support act’s vocalist, will be performing with a new group including Ashley Milanese — a blues guitarist — and Frik Enslin with St John on keyboards and Robbie Marais on drums. They are working hard at getting a set together which will be largely blues-jazz.

Entrance for the evening is R20. The club meets every second Tuesday at the Red Door in Quarry Road (off Victoria Road). Visit the new for more on the Maritzburg Musicians’ Club.
