McCully Workshop is South Africa's top Pop Rock Band, resonating with old and young.
McCully Workshop is arguably one of South Africa's finest pop rock bands. They started way back in the '60's, dominated the South African airwaves in the '70's, continued through the '80's and '90's and in the 21st century are still going strong. McCully Workshop has had many line-up changes over the years, but these 2 talented brothers Mike and Tully have always surrounded themselves with superb musicians. McCully Workshop are looking forward to give back to their local fans, many of whom will be thrilled to experience them in a live concert.

Watershed gives us something to believe in
Watershed may now be South Africa’s leading acoustic rock group, with a string of platinum and gold albums and awards to its name - but when its debut single ‘Indigo Girl’ surged up South Africa’s charts back in 2000, it was hard to predict just how successful the group would be.
From the start, CraigHinds was convinced he wanted to be part of a band and over the years, the Watershed line-up has shifted. The band has been based around the tight unit of Hinds (vocals, piano, acoustic guitar, harmonica), Gideon Botes (lead guitar, acoustic and mandolin) Howie Combrink (drums), and James Sunney (bass and vocals) – and their full live calendar is testament to the incredible live show mounted by Watershed which takes the melodic pop of the studio albums into breathtakingly beautiful, and often hard rocking, zones!
FEATURING SUPPORTING ACTS FROM...
Based in Cape Town, the Africa Voices Trust is a non-profit organization created to support the development of highly talented and deserving young African musicians and singers. Their primary goal is to identify, educate and grow future stars as well as to create the potential for their employment. Using an intensive 7-12 month programme for a selective group of upcoming artists each year, the Trust provides both artistic training as well as connection with professionals in the music industry.
Working in schools and farms throughout the Elgin and Grabouw community, the Rural Arts Network facilitates music, art, dance and drama to children who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Network aims to both nuture the creative talents of the students and develop them into responsible citizens, with a long-term goal of connecting these young artists with professional opportunities.
Primarily hosting artists at its Sea Point venue with a "living room" feel, Studio 7 has been creating intimate live Sessions for artist to perform unplugged in a casual setting since 2010. By bringing together music lovers with the best of local and international talent in this unique environment, Studio 7 aims to highlight the artistry of the music and provide exclusive experiences with an artist that provide glimpses into personal stories as well as a stripped-down song selection.
