Saxophonist Dan Shout will be offering a winter jazz and wine series at Barristers Grill, Café and Pub in Kildare Road, Newlands from today.

When Barristers and Helderberg Winery heard about Dan’s “In with a Shout” original jazz tour to two jazz festivals in the UK in July, they really wanted to help him and his band get there. They jumped on board with a venue, wine and four unique menus, tailor-made to enhance the musical theme of each evening.

Tonight Dan will be joined by Andrew Ford on piano and Sibusiso Matsimela on double bass for an American swing-themed evening.

He’ll host a Latin night with Romy Brauteseth on double bass and Gavin Minter on percussion on Tuesday 26 May.

The third evening, on Tuesday 9 June, will be a tango night with Stanislav Angelov on accordion and Dave Ridgway on double bass. The last evening in the series on Tuesday 30 June will see Dan joined by Sibusiso Matsimela on double bass and Ludwe Danxa on keys for an African jazz night.

Dan will be accompanied by Marc de Kock (tenor sax) and Benjamin Jephta (electric bass) and will collaborate with some of England’s finest jazz musicians when they perform at the 30th Wigan International Jazz Festival in England and the Edinburgh Jazz Festival in Scotland in July.


Tickets for the series at Barristers cost R195 per evening and include a three-course meal and wines from Helderberg Winery. Booking is essential as there are only 50 seats available per night. Call 021 674 1792 to book or visit www.barristersgrill.co.za for more information
