It’s no small feat to be hailed as one of South Africa’s longest-lived and most legendary rock bands, and still going strong.


Although rock is the fundamental sound of the band, WONDERboom have delved into different

genres, ranging from funk through to punk and even afro-dance.


None can deny that WONDERboom’s biggest strength is their live performance. From festivals to nightclubs, the band just kicks ass – consistently!


WONDERboom have released 9 albums, headlined many major South African festivals and have been nominated for 5 ‘Best Rock Album’ awards in the South African Music Awards. They also won the South African leg of the 2004 Global Battle of the Bands & came SECOND WORLDWIDE at the finals in the London Astoria!


There can be few South African music fans that aren’t familiar with their hits, like Never Ever, Jafta Rebel, Something Wrong, Green Fever, Africa, Shadows, Charlie, It’s Great to be Alive, Best Side, On The Radio, Karaoke Bar and now, currently on SA stations, Ooh La La, Southern Light and Praying Mantis.


Cito, Martin Schofield and Wade Williams, the founding members of WONDERboom, have been writing songs and performing together for over 25 years and show no signs of stopping the rocking rollercoaster!


Danny De Wet, co-founder of WONDERboom, played drums from 1996 to 2009 and a vital role in the formative years. Garth McLeod, Sugardrive drummer, joined 2009 – 2013, unfortunately taken from us too early in a motorbike accident. May he rest in peace.


Then, in a sort of reinvention, they’ve had to get the WONDERmachine up and going again. Enter Jonathan Bell on drums, and so the process of a new Rock & Roll relationship began...


It's been a cathartic and introspective journey since, but no one, who has seen them live recently, can deny the sheer magical force that WONDERboom is.
