Friday Night Jazz-Gavin Minter

20 October 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Jazz music has been an integral part of social gatherings in South Africa, particularly in urban areas like Cape Town. It is weaved into the fabric of the city. Both food and jazz are platforms of expression linked to culture, history and commentary. At Makers Landing this Winter, we want to create a vibrant, intimate atmosphere that brings people together by converging live music and food resulting in an enjoyable multi-sensory experience.

Glenn Robertson and Tony Drake 6 pm

Glenn (Vocals) and Tony (Keyboards) band together as a spinoff of the popular Glenn Robertson Jazz Band, and have performed on the ‘Golden Oldies’ circuit under the curatorship of Terry Fortune, as well as the District 6 Museum and the Protea Marriot Hotel in Mowbray. They play cool old school standards, ballads, love songs, some fusion and a little pop. The duo have been working together for over 18 years on various musical projects, including Healthy Heritage and Songs Worth Singing and supporting many Cape Jazz Legends.
