South African music legends Mango Groove as well as Jimmy Nevis, the Kiffness and Rory Eliot will be performing at the Cape Town Sixes Cricket and Cultural Festival this Sunday, 20th March, following two days of exciting amateur cricket featuring ex-Protea legends like Meyrick Pringle, Allan Donald and Aubrey Martin with ex-Protea player Brett Schultz getting involved as an umpire.
The two-day festival kicks off tomorrow (Saturday, 20th) at the Greenpoint Cricket Club.
The music line-up is a real treat for Capetonians who don’t often have the opportunity to see Mango Groove play live. An 11-piece Afropop band, Mango Groove has had more than twelve number-one hits including ‘Dance some more’, ‘Hellfire’, ‘Special Star’ and ‘Moments Away’. They recently released their first single in six years ‘Faces to the Sun’.
Jimmy Nevis needs no introduction, born and raised in Cape Town, his music has been dominating the airwaves for the last couple of years, including hits such as ‘7764’, ‘Jericho’ and ‘Heartboxing’.
The Kiffness makes jazzy, groovy and uplifting house music and are fast becoming one of South Africa’s favourite live electronic acts. ‘Where Are You Going?’ and ‘Find A Way’ are two of their most successful singles to date and the band was included in the iTunes list of “New Artists for 2014” to watch out for.
Singer-songwriter and ex-front man of SA band Plush, Rory Elliot completes the line-up for Sunday night.
