(Chloe Clark)

Joining forces at Rhumbelow Theatre this coming weekend (May 12 to 14) are Durban’s favourite and finest jazz cats; the vocal talents of songbird Chloe Clark, alongside Burton Naidoo on piano, drummer Riley Giandhari and Llewyn Chetty on the bass. There is also a horn section with Kgethi Nkotsi on trombone, Phuti Mofokeng on trumpet and Phumlani Mtiti on saxophone.

Giving these songs their own special swing treatment, watch out for Megan Trainor’s world-wide hit All about the Bass and made famous by Chloe Clark on this season’s The Voice South Africa, BeyoncĂ©’s Single Ladies. Chloe Clark and her ‘Put A Swing On It’ band have done several tours throughout last year and have been working on some exciting new arrangements which include The Carpenters, Michael Jackson and Britany Spears. They promise to have audiences swinging and clicking to their exceptional arrangements

Clark will also perform Hey Darling, a self-penned song from her newly released solo album. She was asked to perform this song on Espressso on SABC3 and the music video was play listed on MNet at the end of 2016.

So dust off those dancing shoes, round up a group of friends and book to see these talented and edgy Durban musicians.

Performances take place tomorrow and Saturday (May 12 and 13) and Sunday (May 14) at 14h00 and 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.
