Galleria Mall ‘Be the Band’ 2017 winners

2017-09-20 06:01

INDEEP started as a collaboration two-and-a-half years ago when a few members decided to perform for a church function in their garage. They gelled so well that the band was born.

InDeep were one of six artists or bands who impressed the judges at Galleria Mall on Saturday night.

Also displaying their talent were The Remedy Project, Mikaela­ Chetty, The Profile, Malaky and The Bradley Grey Band.

East Coast Radio’s Bongani Mtolo from the East Coast Drive hosted the event and music lovers turned out in numbers to support KwaZulu-Natal’s finest.

The judges were Deon Govender (East Coast Radio Party People host, and Play Local), Liesl Coppin (actress, voice-over artist and vocalist), Gavin “Dave Audinary” Bowden (singer, rapper, producer and songwriter, and the winner of “Be the Band” 2016) and Kurt Hoggan (Galleria Mall General Manager).

Hoggan is responsible for bringing #BeTheBand to the South Coast and his alternative taste in music has earned him a place at the judges’ table.

The judges had a tough time making the final decision, but in the end InDeep’s performance and stage presence won the judges over.

InDeep walked away with prizes valued at R80 000, including vouchers from Galleria Mall, Mr Browns BBQ, Sorbet, Bargain Books, Caribbean Estates, Cotton On, Cellucity, Galleria Mall Ice Rink and the Spa on Fairway. They will also be the opening act at East Coast Radio’s Concert, Comedy and Craft Festival on September 25, at the Botanic Gardens. The runner-up bands each received a R1 000 Galleria Mall gift voucher.

InDeep’s style focuses on cheerful, upbeat music, ranging from R&B to reggae, pop and folk. They are synonymous for their melodic harmonies, catchy guitar cords, jazzy bass rundowns and punchy drum rhythms.

Catch them at East Coast Radio’s Concert, Comedy and Craft Festival. - Supplied.
