The Event

After the unfortunate weather-related postponement of the January show, The Blues Broers finally get the chance to rock-up the Taproom gardens in February!



The Stellies Taproom is set to play host to a truly one of a kind musical act! Join us in the gardens for an intimate evening with great Stellies Beers & Joostenberg Wine, as well as some Taproom classic eats. Kindly note that this event is not seated and we encourage you to bring your picnic blankets or camping chairs to enjoy a relaxed, informal evening under the stars in our Taproom gardens. All food and drinks will be available from the Taproom menu on the night. Please note that NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS ARE ALLOWED.



ABOUT THE BLUES BROERS:

Since the launch of their seventh album ‘Into the Red’ in 2014 the Blues Broers performed at the Standard Bank Jazz Festival in Grahamstown, appeared on the major TV networks, produced a sold-out show at Pretoria’s Atterbury Theatre, and featured on the Durban International Blues Festival, the Table Mountain Blues Summit, the Up the Creek and the annual Boxing Day Blues Festival. They feature at boutique events where they showcase their skills, performing a selection from their wealth of original and standard tunes. They never disappoint!


Twenty-five years ago the musical landscape was very different. The Blues Broers started out playing in Cape Town’s seedier clubs and bars. Venues like The Fringe and the appropriately named Smokehouse (some nights you could barely see the stage through the blue haze of cigarette smoke) are long gone, but the band expanded its audience by driving long hours to towns further afield. It was around this time that they added their ‘Skiffle set’ to the show. Skiffle is music played on homemade instruments, such as a tea-chest bass or tin washboard and it’s still an important part of the band’s performance.
