The Unassuming Roadshow comes to Music in the Hills (MiTH) in the KZN Midlands on November 6, 2019.

21h20: The Unassuming Roadshow
(Name On The Drum / Roarke Angelbright collaboration!)

The Unassuming Roadshow is a tour collaboration between Roarke Angelbright (singer-songwriter) and The Name On The Drum (Indie/folk duo). Original music focused with some unique covers thrown in. They went on an Eastern Cape tour and Gauteng tour together as The Unassuming Roadshow, and now offer the best of both these acts, as TNOTD and Roarke Angelbright combine their talents to bring the evening to what promises to be a remarkable close!

20h30: The Name On The Drum
“The Name On The Drum” is an alternative rock, folk and indie band that focuses on playing original music but they also insert a variety of covers into their live shows. Ranging their sound from full electric to simple acoustics, The Name On The Drum uses all the tools at their disposal to create a unique blend of honest, thought provoking song-writing with absorbing musical performances.

With influences that include, Rise Against, Bob Dylan, Frightened Rabbit, The National, Angus & Julia Stone and Gregory Alan Isakov, their song writing also creates awareness of current world issues.

(Ben & Nat Bruzas)

When the band was formed in 2011, the plan was to have a different 'name on the drum' at each performance, now they simply go by "The Name On The Drum" or "TNOTD". 

Current performing members are brothers Ben and Nat Bruzas. Who, in July 2019 released  their independently recorded and produced second EP "Souvenirs". They are based in Hillcrest and have played extensively around KZN, as well as touring Gauteng and the Eastern Cape.

19h40: Roarke Angelbright
Roarke Angelbright is an independent singer-songwriter with a unique on-stage presence. Defining his music as 'Alternative-Folk'; he takes influences from rock, folk, blues and even hip-hop to craft his brand of life-inspired songwriting. Live-looping, storytelling and crowd interaction are a big part of his act. Angelbright has been looping, strumming, soloing, beatboxing, rapping and singing his way through gigs and festivals since early 2016. His debut EP Chaotic Neutral released in late 2018. In-between national touring he is working on recording his, already written, follow up EP. His music video Wastelands (from Chaotic Neutral) is out on YouTube:
Roarke is preparing to embark on a new chapter in his journey next year; spreading his wings with some international touring both on cruise-ships and independently throughout the UK/Ireland.

19h00: Cashmere Karly
Cashmere Karly is a relatively new duo comprised of Maryke Jonsson and Charles Webster. They perform a mixture of melodic rock and pop songs, with a special love for ballads that involve harmony. With songs rearranged to suit their particular blend of smooth vocals and tasteful instrumentation, Charles (guitar) and Maryke (keyboard) both sing lead and harmony to create a smooth, evocative sound that draws on a variety of inspirations from Bradley Cooper to Sarah Jarosz, Lewis Capaldi and KT Tunstall.
