The Maritzburg Musicians Club La Casa offer a romantic evening to celebrate Valentine’s Day with heartfelt performances by a few local acts, as well as serving a unique Persian meal by Kishmish.

Brian and Huyton, the originators of The Hairy Legged Lentil Eaters and the first act to perform at MMC over 30 years ago, will be singing romantic yet humorous tunes with gentle harmonies.

Guitarist Kyle Baker has been playing in bands in and around the Midlands for a few years, including Gloucester Blues Project, Tuff Gong, Fan the Fire, and Aymira. His solo performances are an acoustic folky vibe, inspired by Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, Xavier Rudd, Trevor Hall, etc. His aim is to express emotion through his music, as authentically as possible.

Jess and Nish have been a duo since last year performing gigs all over KZN. Jess plays the acoustic guitar and piano and her incredible singing ability got her to appear on season 1 of The Voice SA. Nish plays all types of hand drums including the tabla and has played with many other artists including the Jack Mantis Band, Larry Amos, Tim Parr, St John & Tanya and many more.

Get along for a dreamy evening of music at La Casa on February 14. Doors open at 19h00 and entrance is R50. Come early to book your seat and get your food order in!
