|Info:||2Ché, one of Port Elizabeth’s top folk bands will be performing live at the Cape St Francis Lifestyle Resort Theatre on Saturday, December 18, 2010. |
The duo have recently finished recording their first album, ‘Play it like it is’ at Fountain Eye Studios and hosted a highly successful launch in November.
2Ché is one of the most unique combinations of musicians in South Africa, with their main focus on electric bass and voice complemented by rhythm guitar. 2Ché is something that has to be seen to be believed, as one of the Eastern Cape’s top bassists, Andrew Warneke, changes musical focus from the traditional bass line to a chord-and- melody texture.
Warneke is complemented by the soulful, versatile vocals of singer and songwriter, Claire Harmse. Warneke was the only Eastern Cape musician to be invited to perform a solo set at Bass Day South Africa held in Johannesburg in 2009.
Harmse has also made a name for herself on the local music scene and was the winner of the solo category in the Vodacom Live Music Awards held in East London in 2008. Her wide vocal range and unique tone of voice is reminiscent of Janis Joplin mixed with Carol King and her ‘real life’ lyrics speak to the hearts of all listeners.
2Ché describe their sound as “organic pop/folk with jazz and blues influences.”
They will be performing live at the Cape St Francis Lifestyle Resort Theatre on Saturday, December 18, 2010. The show starts at 19h30 and tickets are R40 at the door.
