Coming up tonight (Tuesday, March 4) from the Maritzburg Musicians Club at the Red Door in Pietermaritzburg is John Roff, with Chris Melling (or Baviaan) showcasing a world of instruments. Also on the programme will be a bluesy jazzy performance from pianist St John accompanied by vocalist Tanya.

John Roff (educator, musician and world music enthusiast) and Chris Melling (well-known musician and passionate percussionist) will take patrons on a Sound Journey. Expect to see, hear and even learn about a strange and fascinating variety of musical treats, from Native American flute to isitolotolo, Bansuri, Kalimba, Chalumeau, Didgeridoo, the Wave drum and more.

St John & Tanya are an emotive vocal/piano ensemble with jazz and blues influences. Bringing vocal laidback jazz with twists to contemporary numbers, St John & Tanya display their belief that without “heart”…music is lost.

The music starts at 20h00 and entrance is R40. The home of the Maritzburg Musicians Club, The Red Door is situated in Quarry Rd, off Victoria Road, in Pietermaritzburg. Car guards on duty. More information from Roger O’Neill on 083 230 6562.
