ENJOY a relaxed afternoon of incredible blues music, good food, friends, family and great vibes next weekend.

Stellenbosch-born musician Gerald Clark and the Boys from Prague will take to the stage at The Happy Hippo on the Seekoei River in Paradise Beach at 13:30 on Sunday, January 27.

Clark, who has great memories of playing at The Happy Hippo, has been touring Eastern Europe for a few years, and is now ready to bring his band from Czech Republic back to South Africa for a 14-day tour - for the first time ever.

The musicians joining him are some of the finest and most talented Czech Republic has to offer, and they regularly serve as backing for international blues/country and folk stars touring in Eastern Europe.

The band features Jiri “Lightning Boy ”Marsicek on electric guitar, Tomas Hobsek on drums and Matej Cerny on bass. They form a formidable backing to Clark’s original songwriting style, which is very deeply entrenched with blues and soul tweaked with a twist of folk and country ballads.

On Clark’s latest album, Afrocoustic, he had the privilege of working with members of the Johhny Clegg and the Freshley Ground band, which introduced him to the African elements listeners can trace on his latest offering.

The audience can expect a very tight, well-rehearsed band with an original fresh sound. A combination of international experience that these boys from Czech accumulated over the years and the magic that Clark has to offer.

Expect fireworks, solid grooves and superb musical experience, which only seasoned musicians with their roots strongly in the blues can provide.

The gates open at 11:30, while Gerald Clark and his Czech Band will take to the stage at 13:30.

Tickets are available online at Quicket (R130 per person) and at the venue on the day of the show at R150 per person.
