The Sunshines and The Comeback Kings at Alma Cafe Saturday 14 April 2018

There is an exciting double bill coming up at Alma Cafe on Saturday 14 April 2018.

Many South African music lovers will remember The Sunshines. Founded by Skye Wilson and Gregory John Schoeman in 1993, The Sunshines recorded and independently released their debut album “Removeable Tattoos” at Shifty Records in 1994.

Between 1993and 1997, The Sunshines played most major SA music festivals, gigging countrywide and often sharing the stage with other iconic local 90s bands such 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. Malcolm Cassisa will be joining them on drums for this gig at Alma Cafe.

Expect acoustic renditions of their popular songs as well as never before heard new material.

Sharing the stage with The Sunshines will be Greg and the Comeback Kings.

The Comeback Kings are Greg Schoeman (also of The Sunshines) on guitar and vocals, Dieter Stutz (ex Sweatband, one of SA’s top bands in the 80’s) on bass guitar and Gary Hendricks on drums.

Their music can be described as Pop/Rock played with plenty energy and passion. They will be promoting their CD In my Street which will also be available to purchase.

Couvert Charge is R150-00 per person which includes a meal (Pasta or a Burger). For bookings and enquiries, please call Alma Cafe 021 685 7377

Seating is limited.
