Acoustic Arts 5.Round 7


The penultimate round of heats for Acoustic Arts 5 took place on a chilly evening at this iconic venue in Fourways,Johannesburg. 

Time to set up the microphone and lights... 

Tune up the guitars and 

wait for judge Bruce Dennill (editor of CitiVibe, musician, songwriter and broadcaster) to announce who was chosen to open the evening... 

And that dubious honour fell to Johnny Nothing... 

In certain light he looked like a young John Lennon...and it was up to him to set the tone for the evening... 

After performing outside on the balcony, Andre Viljoen enjoyed his time on stage under the warm spotlights. 

Andre singing his heart out... 

Next up, Duane Smith... 

He kept the intimate crowd entertained with his talent... 

judge Natalie Chapman,(singer,songwriter,broadcaster, manager and lecturer) proving that it was warmer inside than out...and it was her duty to introduce the last performer... 

Gareth Lawson proved that it was worth staying to hear him... 

 Many thanks to all those who stayed to support Gareth, I am certain that he appreciated the warm applause on such a cold evening. 

A new addition to both Tanz Cafe and the Acoustic Arts 5 competition is "Balcony TV.This method of sharing music is presented in 30 countries around the world. Each contestant got to perform one song(on the balcony) and tell the viewing audience a bit about himself...to see the other performers, visit www.balconytv.com/johannesburg.

So, time to pack away the lights until the last round of heats on Tuesday,29th May...
I am told that B&W catches the soul of an image: http://www.davidbatzofin.com/2012/05/arty-acoustic-arts-5.html
