The Jack Mantis Band from Cape Town is to perform at bluestockings in Kloof on August 10.

Peace, love and politics ... this is what you'll find in the music of the Jack Mantis Band. These gypsy rockers promise to “make love to your ears while taking you on a caravan of musical bliss”. The music is their heartsong and Jack’s voice their portal. The lyrics speak of honesty and truth, reaching into internal passion, and manifesting a range of compositions, each taking the listener on a journey that is best experienced in their live performances.

Jack’s unique finger style guitar work and his distinctive voice is perfectly complimented by Domenico Benigno on keyboard, accordion and harmonica. Their sound is brought together by the skills of Emile Hoogenhout’s drum work. Together this three-piece band has been hailed as one of South Africa’s most diverse and crowd-inspiring performances on the live circuit.

See The Jack Mantis Band at bluestockings at Dan Pienaar Road, Kloof, on August 10 at 19h30. Bookings phone Narene on 083 659 3628 (enquire about dinner when you book).
