DRUM was invited to an acoustic performance by Jonathan Butler, on Nonn Botha’s show at Kaya FM studios.

Last night DRUM had a fantastic time with Jazz, Gospel and Pop maestro Jonathan Butler, on Nonn Botha’s show at Kaya FM studios. It was an intimate gig attended mostly by members of the press.

Jonathan took the audience down memory lane with classics such as; “Heal Our Land” and “7th Avenue”.  The show also gave him an opportunity to showcase material from his new CD “Living My Dream”. We spoke to him about passion for music. “I’m at a point in my life where I wanna commit myself to helping the kids, because kids play music by association, you know!  But they may not know they might the next Herbie Hancock. I wanna devote my time and passion to the development of our children. We've done a lot of work in the Gauteng area and Cape Town is next." “For me when you’re 52, you’re a granddad and you've accomplished a few things in life and you’re leaving your dream… there’s a whole wealth of knowledge in my head and experiences that I wanna share with young people and sharpen their tools, because iron sharpens iron.”
