While it seemed like the whole of South Africa was putting the final preparations together for the FIFA Soccer World Cup final – and a few warned us about the impact of hosting this event – Bush Radio was organising an evening of music and comedy for the Bush Radio / Vodacom Community Funny Festival.
Everyone was captivated by the performances
After weeks of careful planning, sound checks, rehearsals and running around it all came together on the evening of July 9 at the Joseph Stone Auditorium in Athlone.
Dyllan and Victor hosted the first part of the evening
Excited listeners and supporters arrived early to wait for the doors to open at 5pm.
Denisia kept things moving backstage
Shiraaz Ismail was tasked to head the Bush Radio team which included Denisia Adams, Victor Jay, Sive Msolo, Dyllan Canterbury, Brenda Leonard, Elroy Williams, Belinda Sepkit, Sharon Salies and Adrian Louw.
Great job guys!
Shaz & B encouraged the crowd to come with them
Byron Clarke asked the audience to imagine their Cape Town
We at Bush Radio would like to express our gratitude and thanks to the Stereotype Records family, especially Chad Saaiman and Byron Clarke, as well as SA/Canadian artist, Zaki Ibrahim, and local duo Shaz & B who all had the crowd begging for more. (CLICK HERE TO WATCH SELECTED CLIPS)
