They are a Johannesburg-based band that is becoming one of South Africa’s most popular bands with three singles from their album, Good Morning Sunshine, being placed in the top five of the 5FM, Top 40 countdown. Their music is quirky, feel-good with hits like Couch Potato, Bikini Weather and Gimme My Fix and are at the forefront of the South African, indie-rock music scene, with a loyal, almost cult-like following. The performance will start on Saturday at 5pm in the Wembley College Pavillion on Saturday 2 September.To buy tickets, contact Wembley College on 033 413 2677 or email head@wembley college.co.zaAlcohol can be brought into the performance by anyone over 18 years of age.
