Closing off four great weeks of music, the Rainbow Restaurant in Pinetown – in association with Concerts SA - will present a quick return concert from The Brother Moves On, on July 3.

The Brother Moves On first performed at the Rainbow on a double bill with The Muffinz at the Rainbow’s birthday bash in December 2015 and so impressed the organisers that when they requested a performance before setting out on their first month-long European tour, there was hesitation in saying yes.

“In advertising last year’s concert, people who were not aware of the brother, would ask me to describe their music,” says Rainbow co-owner Neil Comfort. “How do you describe roots, experimental music, art, story telling, visual delight? I told our patrons who asked these questions to come and see for themselves, take the journey with us and TBMO.

“People came. Long-time supporters, newbies, interested seekers of music. TMBO hit the stage and gave us their unique, brilliantly crafted performance. They are the fantastic youth of South Africa, they are the thinking, feeling, questioning, hopeful and bold South Africa. They showed us their craft, with story telling through rhythmical and experimental roots music and performed so well that it lifted us. I still struggle with words to describe them as I don’t think what they do exists anywhere else. They are creating new stuff, which fills me with excitement and awe,” adds Comfort.

The Brother Moves on appears on July 3 at 13h00. Tickets can be purchased at the Rainbow or at The Rainbow Restaurant Estd 1981 is situated at 23 Stanfield Lane, Pinetown. More information on 031 702 9161 or 083 463 8044 or email: or visit
