Many South African music lovers will remember The Sunshines.
Founded in 1993 by Skye Wilson and Gregory John Schoeman, The Sunshines recorded and independently released their debut album “Removeable Tattoos” at Shifty Records in 1994.
Between 1993 and 1997, The Sunshines played most major SA music festivals, gigging countrywide and often sharing the stage with other iconic local 90s bands such as The Springbok Nude Girls, Lithium, Dolly Rockers, Urban Creep, The Usual and Wonderboom.
Rave reviews and packed out shows followed, with the band enjoying considerable success and support from a huge local fan base. During this time, The Sunshines dominated SA’s national and regional airwaves with their contagious, feel-good pop tunes which included the hits “Wanna make love”; “Happy Person” and “Judy”.
Two decades later, The Sunshines are still happy to put out melodic tunes with smart /clever/astute/crafty arrangements and soulful intent.
The Sunshines have done recent gigs at Jack Black's Taproom (where they were very well received and have been invited back to play again) as well as the Melkbosstrand Food Festival.
