A music evening at Rusty Hook.Honeydew

It has been a while since I last visited this venue in Honeydew, off Beyers Naude Drive.
However,I was not there for the quiz, just the music.

Bruce Dennill kicked off the music.
Not easy being first on stage at a venue like this.
The customers that came for the quiz tend to leave during the opening act.
and members of the audience have been known to talk. back.
Despite these hurdles he soldiered on and produced a great mixed set.
A seasoned singer/songwriter he did some of his own music
as well as some covers.

He tends to hide behind his music stand,
making it difficult to photograph him.
"Look into my lens" I asked...
and this was the result

He has just bought himself a 12 string guitar,
which sounded awesome on the night.
It added a layer to his music that had the aforementioned
 vocal audience members asking for more!

And he obliged, much to the appreciation of all audience members.
Many of Bruce's own compositions can be bought on-line,
at iTunes as well as Sound Cloud.

It must be really difficult playing when you have Simon & Garfunkel 
looking over your shoulder.
Andrew Proome did not seem to concerned...
either by who was behind or in front of him!

Andrew was having fun with his set list.
Although well known as an instrumentalist,
he decided to add vocals to his choice of music for the evening

He is also a guitar maker of note.
This particular instrument is one of his creations.

Settling in for the evening...
He was uncertain as to how long he was required to perform.
but he was not deterred by that possible limitation
and played on until the final act were ready to get on stage

+2 Band...Vodi and Costa
closing out the evening

Costa started off the set with an awesome instrumental version
of the Frank Sinatra classic "My Way"

Rocking the house...
and what was left of the audience.
I have discovered that often audiences will leave before a set is complete.
But it does not seem to affect the performers too much.
To all three artists, thanks for a most enjoyable evening.

Well done to the event organizer,
