Windmill celebrates the start of spring with the launch of its monthly Jazz on the Lawns on 30 September 2018. The launch event features an eclectic mix of soulful bands including The Muffinz, Shared Address and the Mangaung Marimba Band. Each bringing their own unique style and musical blend to the event, they will fill the air with soothing, soulful and upbeat sounds that will appeal to an array of music tastes. Lazing on the lawns under African skies, guests can end off their weekend on a high note with good food and a great vibe.
“We are thrilled to launch our regular Jazz on the Lawns with a great entertainment lineup, including The Muffinz. This is going to be the first of many inspired Sunday afternoon events. What better way is there to end off the weekend than with awesome music, great food and good friends,” says Kamo Mohapi the PR & Promotions Coordinator at Windmill.
The music of The Muffinz is so new, yet so soulful, so accessible, so honest and so innocent, that it appeals to people of all ages, races, and classes. The five young musicians make a refreshing change from the usual run of the mill rappers and house DJs, who are currently dominating the popular music scene, in that they play real instruments, and they play them well. The band switches from a groovy R&B rhythm led by acoustic guitarist Mthae and bassist Skabz, to a classy jazz guitar sound introduced by electric guitarist and acapella singer, Simz.
Shared Address is a South African folk/blues acoustic duo from Pretoria Gauteng. Shared Address blends traditional folk, blues and country rock. The Mangaung Marimba Band is Mangaung’s premier marimba band, bringing life and soul to every event they perform at.
Food and drinks will be on sale throughout the afternoon. No picnic baskets or cooler boxes will be permitted into the event. However, revellers are encouraged to bring picnic blankets to relax on. Jazz on the Lawns takes place from 12h00 to 18h00 and there is no cost to enjoy the afternoon of vibrant entertainment.🔥31
