Dinosaur Days Revisited Benefit For Leon Economides

Cafe Barcelona in Pretoria is the place to be at 7pm on the 16th November 2013 to show support for Leon Economides.

 

Leon Economides and Paris.
Leon Economides and Paris.

  

A number of years ago, Leon was held up at gunpoint in an armed robbery in his offices, and was badly assaulted, which led to his spinal column being seriously injured when a few lower vertebra were broken as a result of him being kicked in the back and the assailants jumping on his back when he was made to lie face down on the floor. The damage was quite extensive, and this this has led to many failed back procedures since 2008 (the diagnosis is called “Failed Back Procedure Syndrome”) and other complications, rendering him unable to work properly or live a normal life, together with huge medical bills. This has affected his income tremendously, and has led to other medical conditions that are attributed to the condition.

 

It is a long and involved story, but to summarize: Due to medical aid and life policy exclusions / waiting periods and other financial issues, Leon’s medical expenses got out of control as the complications, and need, for further, and ongoing medical procedures, continue. He has recently consulted with a new anaesthesiologist / pain specialist at the Wilgeheuwel Hospital who has advised that, whilst there is no cure for the nerve and disc damage done, he might be able to alleviate and reduce the debilitating pain Leon is experiencing every day of his life, with a different procedure to the ones that Leon has already had, and which have not been successful, hopefully thus affording him a better quality of life.

 

Johnathan Martin came up with the idea of a benefit concert, and he and Charl Barry have set about arranging this. The purpose of the benefit concert is to try and assist Leon with the costs of this latest procedure, which is to be held in the later part of November.

 

Johnathan and Charl contacted various musicians, secured a venue and a PA, together with a sound engineer. It’s now its up to us, the public, to show up and help pay Leon’s medical bills, a sort of “thank you” for the music and support of SA bands and musicians over the years.

 

CAFE BARCELONA, in Elardus Park, Pretoria, was kind enough to give us the venue, together with their PA. The concert will be held from 7pm on 16 NOVEMBER 2013, and Conrad Jamneck will do the sound. 

 

The musicians that so kindly offered their services for free, are:

 

  • Son
  • The Fake Leather Blues Band
  • Aiden Martin Band
  • Agro
  • Johnathan Martin and In My Blood
  • The Black Cat Bones
  • Mauritz Lotz

 

ALSO…..

 

Peter Pulvenis from BAND O’ GYPSYS will come out of retirement for this gig, thanks to Gary Fulton.

 

The entrance fee will be R100 per person. The money will be paid into a fund which will be used to pay for Leon’s medical bills.

Press Release Mean Black Mamba: Raw foot stomping roots music – Album launch Friday 11 Oct – Side Street Studios 48 Albert Road Woodstock

Mean Black Mamba: Raw foot stomping roots music that grooves your body and soul. Words of humor and hope sliding between writhing riffs and the insistent thump of a cowhide drum. This is afro swamp gospel, this is blues n’ roll. Gritty & hard hitting, the music winds you off the floor and twists you to your feet. Fresh. Cosmic delta juju. Like its name-snake, mean with a smile on its face.

Born on the southern tip of Africa, Guy Collins has been playing guitar for most of his years. His interest really took off when he was 15 on a warm day. The long distance groove from somewhere in the American south, Howlin’ Wolf on Highway 49, beamed into the living room. African roots, blues, rock ‘n roll. A continual search for an elusive sound.

Mean Black Mamba Album Launch

“James van Minnen can extract a beat from a feather and a shoe if it were asked of him; seated at his drums he appears as a blur of limbs and crashing steel from which infectious rhythms emanate in metronomic waves…he infuses African and Middle Eastern rhythms into songs with hypnotic effect”

Mahala Review (voted in the top 25 artists of 2012 by IMR Magazine)

James van Minnen and Guy Collins have both been in the music scene for years, mostly somewhat under the radar, fuelling the backline in some of the more well-known outfits around.

Mean Black Mamba is the result of infrequent collaborations between these two musicians over the past decade, an unnamed two-piece appearing at house parties, street markets and other events where they have slipped in incognito and blown people away with their rich, gritty and rootsy sound.

Mean Black Mamba

Live, MBM follows the template of roots and rural musicians everywhere:

“Grooves are made for dancing and once people get moving, the music takes it’s own course. There are no rules when we are playing and while we have recorded an album of concise songs, we can stretch them out live and segue them into each other over whatever groove or tempo feels right at the time.

I believe that recording an album is an opportunity to create an art piece that reflects a moment in time and we have done our best to make an album that can stand for itself while imbuing it with the raw essence of our live sound.” – Guy Collins

“Our live shows clearly get people going and I think this has a lot to do with the fact that the music is as fresh to us as it is to the audience, being willing to ride the mamba wherever it chooses to take us.” – James van Minnen

Their much-anticipated “Killer album.” (Tim Lengfeld, Audio Mastering Engineer) will be launched at Side Street Studios, 48 Albert Rd, Woodstock, on October 11th this year where you can experience this and what is guaranteed to be one helluva shindig with some fantastic guest artists and collaborators.

History of The Blues Summit:

Mike Combrinck started the Blues Summit on the 15th November 2006 at the Tafelberg Tavern in Cape Town. This debut of the festival saw the reunion of the Blues Broers for a special summit performance, and with the help of Boulevard Blues, Albert Frost, Dan Patlansky, Delta Blue, Piet Botha and Southern Gypsey Queen, it was a great success.

In 2007 Mike entered into negotiation with long time bastion of Blues Rock, Richard Pryor to co-partner him in managing the Blues Summit. Richard ‘a solid man of Rock’ had an axe to grind and was sharpening his blues pencil to take the summit up a notch.His mandate was a musically successful summit with financial independence.

Tapping into his own musical resources, database and Blues Wigi Boards, Richard secured the sponsorship of Combustion Technology to help out financially.

‘Crossing Borders, Driving North’ – 25 years down the road with NIBS

“This excellent career overview shows a voice full of wonder and humility of the songs it sings.” Rolling Stone **** (August 2013)

“Each and every song on this collection is remarkable testament to what a truly original and consummate talent Nibs is and one of the best representations of truly original South African music.”

“The mark of any half decent guitarist is the ability to become one with the instrument. Nibs is that kind of guitar player where he becomes the guitar.”-Music Review SA

“Nibs is probably one of South Africa’s most underrated musicians. Hopefully this anthology can help change that, showcasing the broad range of this extraordinarily talented musician.” AVSA (South Africa’s leading audio visual magazine)

 

Acclaimed South African guitarist and songwriter, Nibs, made his first profiled performances 25 years ago. From his humble beginnings at the Durban Folk Club to International stages, it has culminated in the newly released, deluxe (2CD) anthology album ‘Crossing Borders, Driving north’. It spans the creative and diverse body of work from his 9 highly acclaimed solo albums. The bonus second disc, ‘Catching Trains’- Nibs solo live through Europe, traces his footsteps through his many tours through France, Germany and the UK. These intimate solo ‘live’ performances were recorded in theatres, music halls, open air festivals and from within the walls of a maximum security prison.

It seems almost poetic justice that “Crossing Borders, Driving north” should translate into “a journey without limitations”, so it is a fitting retribution to the rites of passage of his work to date and for what is still to come.

His virtuosic acoustic guitar style and mesmeric whispering voice have attracted a worldwide following for its intelligent folk, World and African overtones. He has been nominated 7 times at the South African Music awards, perform with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra and share stages across the world with the likes of Ben Harper, Bonnie Rait and Taj Mahal.

Nibs is also busy with the filming of a documentary about himself and his career which will be screened at his upcoming launches in the second half of 2013.

‘Crossing Borders, Driving north’ is available on CD and digital download atand on iTunes and will be available at each concert.

Jake Gunn at On A Roll, 5th September 2013

Jake Gunn
Jake Gunn
  • 7:00pm
  • Up and coming blues rock musician playing gigs around Cape Town with fellow guitarist Devin Smith. Influences include The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson and Bob Marley. First album Triple Jack now available! Watch this space…

    Jake Gunn is an up and coming blues rock musician hailing from the northern suburbs of Cape Town. After discovering rock ‘n roll at a young age, he was inspired to start playing guitar and worked tirelessly to improve his skill, which finally led to him joining the Lyzyrd Kyngs (Piet Botha & Akkedis) in 2010. He spent a year under the mentorship of these veteran musicians, before teaming up with the talented young guitarist Devin Smith.

    Sharing a love of music and complementing each other’s guitar playing, they started doing gigs around Cape Town, followed by a tour up the coast. They later evolved into a full electric band after being joined by CJ Bergh and Allen Smith. Jake Gunn’s first album Triple Jack, recorded in the winter of 2012, is now available and includes the song “Radio Mojo” which was featured in the Rolling Stone Rock Chart of 19 January 2013.

    “Springing from the backwaters of Brackenfell with the hair of Robert Plant, the skill of boy Clapton and the voice of a morning-afternight-before Mark Knopfler, Gunn is a revelation.” -Alice Inggs, Rolling Stone SA

The annual Ard Matthews and Friends Charity Concert will be taking place for the fourth year running on Thursday 29th of August 2013. The concert will be taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Cape Town Upper Eastside in Woodstock. The popular South African singer, Ard Matthews who is also lead singer of the acclaimed band Just Jinjer, has been at the forefront of this concert for the past 3 years along with the assistance of top events and PR company, The Little Black Book. The annual charity concert brings together great South African talent to raise money for a worthy cause.

Funds raised through ticket sales will go to a trust called “We The Good People”, a charitable cause, founded by Ard along with two other trustees, Alistair Hargreaves (Springbok/Sharks Lock) and Sean Temple (owner of Flux Motion Kettle Bell Gym).

The charity aims to educate the public about the importance of giving back to others no matter how busy they get, and to allow 100% transparency when it comes to the distribution of the funds. It will also be facilitated by one of the world’s top law firms, Norton Rose, as part of their pro-bono social investment. www.wethegoodpeople.org

Yes it is actually happening … Lancaster Band, one of South Africa’s longest surviving heritage bands will be hosting one of South Africa’s greatest bands of all time … Ella Mental – featuring Tim Parr and Heather Mac. An 80’s reunion party of massive proportions thanks to Kevin Mercury Winder, who will be providing wall to wall sounds, the likes of which one would have danced all night to at clubs such as Scratch and 1886, if you were lucky enough to have been in Cape Town in the 80s.
