DESMOND and the Tutus, Jeremy Loops, Easy Freak and Matthew Mole are only some of the top acts scheduled for the Vibe in the Park music sessions at the 2019 JBay Winterfest.

They will be joined by The Steezies and World of Birds.

Local bands to take to the stage include Loco Madera, The Rhythm Junkies, Black River Gypsy, Sunshine Factory, High Violet and Panic Station, as well as well-known local longboard champion Steven Sawyer.

The Sunshine Factory consists of two of the Eastern Cape’s top musicians - playing everything from old-school jazzy pop to rock ’n roll hits, as well as current radio favourites.

Therese Smith (vocals, percussion and guitar) uses her incredible voice to make songs come to life, while Andrew Warneke (bass guitar) uses a looper, effects, and playing techniques to create intricate soundscapes.

Loco Madera is a local duo consisting of talented musicians David Houghton and Michelle Ohlhoff, both freelance musicians for over 20 years.

Despite both working professio-nally in Gauteng for several years, their paths only crossed in Jeffreys Bay after they both moved to the Eastern Cape.

They discovered they shared an affinity for jazz, in particular the Latin American genres. They teamed up to form a guitar duo for which Michelle also sings. They soon started performing original music, incorporating exciting flamenco rhythms into their arrangements. And so, Loco Madera, meaning “crazy wood”, was born.

The complementary Vibe in the Park will take place at the Supertubes Park in Da Gama Road, Jeffreys Bay from Friday, July 12 to Saturday, July 20.
