Andrew Melville, Oos-Kaapse sanger, leef vir sy musiek.
By: Lizma
News Image 20220704140106ANDREWMELVILLEOOSK

Andrew Melville is in Humansdorp in die Oos Kaap gebore.
Hy het reeds van jonks af 'n liefde vir musiek ontwikkel en was jonger as 5 jaar toe hy die eerste keer begin sing het.Eers het Andrew gereeld vir sy ma en haar vriendinne gesing en van graad 1 tot graad 3 het hy in die skoolkoor gesing. Omdat hy bang was sy vriende lag vir hom, veral in hoërskool, besluit hy om net daar op te hou sing. Maar hy vergeet nooit van sy droom om te sing nie en ‘n hele paar jaar later word sy droom uiteindelik bewaarheid.


Andrew se eerste optrede voor 'n gehoor was tydens 'n konsert by die Thornhill-hotel in 2014. Sedertdien kon niemand hom keer nie en die een na die ander optrede het gevolg. Andrew is ‘n plat op die aarde en nederige mens en hy is passievol oor musiek. Soos hy self sê: “Wanneer ek sing kan ek myself wees. Ek kan myself van die buitewêreld afsluit en my gevoelens uitdruk. Ek glo met harde werk kan ek my doelwitte bereik, maar ek sal nooit vergeet vanwaar ek kom nie en wie my gehelp het nie. Ek sal altyd terugkeer na waar alles vir my begin het.


Andrew is op die oomblik 'n onafhanklike kunstenaar en omdat hy self die fondse bymekaar moet kry vir opnames, neem dit effe langer om ‘n volgende liedjie op te neem, maar Andrew probeer hard om elke jaar iets nuuts vry te stel. Andrew beplan groot dinge vir die toekoms en as die Here hom die vermoeë gee sal hy daar uit uitkom en nog baie oorspronklike musiek skryf en bekend stel.


Andrew: “Die ondersteuning wat ek van die publiek in my musiek loopbaan kry is vir my ongelooflik en ek is baie dankbaar daarvoor. My ondersteuners kom eerste en daarom probeer ek om vir hulle my beste te lewer. My GOD is die EEN wat al hierdie dinge moontlik maak en dis HY wat my krag gee. Ek se Altyd Dankie vir my talent”.


Wanneer Andrew nie sing of werk nie, geniet hy dit om televisiereekse te kyk en om speletjies op die televisie of rekenaar te speel. Hy versamel langspeelplate(vinyl records) en het alreeds 1000de van hulle bymekaar gemaak.
Andrew is ook mal oor motorsport en het oor die algemeen 'n groot liefde vir motors.

Bobby Angel, die legende wat baie gedoen het vir Country
By: Lizma
News Image 20220621201546BOBBYANGELDIELEGEN

Die legendariese Suid-Afrikaanse country-sanger Bobby Angel het op 30 Desember 2021 sy 85ste verjaardag gevier. Hy het in 2016 sy uittrede uit die musiekbedryf aangekondig het.

Robert Engelsman (sy eintlike naam) het aanvanklik opleiding as diamantslyper ontvang, en sodoende in sy pa en sy oupa se voetspore gevolg. Hy het as tiener ook as amateurbokser uitgeblink, maar terselfdertyd ook geleer om tromme te speel. Hy het later ook as sanger begin optree, en mettertyd saam met die internasionaal bekende Manfred Mann gewerk. Terwyl hy sy militere opleiding ondergaan het, het hy besluit om musiek sy loopbaan te maak.

Bobby het aanvanklik besluit om jazz- en swing-musiek, soortgelyk aan die van Frank Sinatra, te sing; hierdie genre sou hom dwarsdeur sy loopbaan na aan die hart le. Hy het sy debuut in 1960 gemaak nadat hy ‘n kontrak by die restaurant Chiquita’s in Johannesburg losgeslaan het. Die bekende musikant Dan Hill het besluit dat hy ‘n nuwe verhoognaam moes kry omdat sy naam te lank was. Hy het voorgestel dan sy van na Engel verander moes word, maar op die ou einde is daar besluit op Angel. Bobby se eerste album, “Rockin’ swingin’ and twistin’: Bobby Angel”, is voor ‘n gehoor in die restaurant opgeneem as gevolg van sy gewildheid.

Teen die einde van 1974 is hy genader om ‘n country-liedjie, getiteld “You ask me to”, op te neem. Dit was oorspronklik ‘n treffer vir Waylon Jennings, maar Elvis Presley het dit ook opgeneem.
Op 17 Januarie 1975 het Bobby se suksesverhaal begin toe sy weergawe van DIE liedjie tot Springbok Radio se Top 20 toegetree het en op 14 Maart daardie jaar tot by die nr.1-posisie gevorder het.

“Before the next teardrop falls” was oorspronklik ‘n treffer vir Freddy Fender. Bobby se weergawe het op 13 Junie 1975 tot Springbok Radio se Top 20 toegetree, die vyfde plek gehaal en 11 weke lank op die trefferslys gebly. Hierdie liedjie was in 1999 ingesluit op die album: “The heart and soul of Bobby Angel”. Teen daardie tyd was hy ook baie gewild in Zimbabwe, en het hy uitnodigings ontvang om daar op televisie te verskyn. Twee verdere treffers het daardie jaar gevolg. Die liedjie, “Don Junior” het Springbok Radio se Top 20 op 28 November 1975 gehaal, tot by die 16de plek gevorder en net drie weke op die trefferslys gebly.

In 1976 het Bobby vir die eerste keer in Suid-Afrika op televisie opgetree, onder meer saam met die operasangeres Mimi Coertse en die tienersangeres Gwyneth Ashley Robin, wat kort daarna in ‘n vliegongeluk oorlede is.
Net daarna, op 9 April, was Bobby terug op Springbok Radio se Top 20 met “It’s a burning thing”, wat oorspronklik ‘n treffer vir Mac Davis was. Bobby se weergawe was nege weke lank op die Top 20 en het die 15de plek gehaal.

Bobby het deurentyd saam met verskeie country-legendes soos Lance James, Billy Forest en Barbara Ray opgetree, maar kort voor sy 80ste verjaardag het hy besluit om finaal afskeid te neem van die musiekbedryf. Bobby is een van die kunstenaars wat die meeste gedoen het om country-musiek gewild te maak in Suid-Afrika.

Grizz The Singing Trucker! Definitely a first for South Africa!
By: Lizma
News Image 20220607194314GRIZZTHESINGINGTRU

Grizz was born on the 30th April 1971 in Fairland’s, Johannesburg and lived in Linden with his parents and four older siblings.
He was accepted into the Drakensberg Boys Choir in 1981 as a Soprano under the choir mastership of Mr Daniel Baard. During this time he performed with the choir in various places in and around South- Africa.
After leaving the Drakensberg Choir Grizz kept taking part in National competitions, Eisteddfods and other school related performances, where he received mostly top achievements.
At age 11, Grizz lost his oldest brother due to a motorcycle accident. Jannie was in the National Air force at the time of his death and he was Grizz’s hero, and after Jannie’s death he rebelled in more than one way, and lost his will to sing.
At age 16 Grizz enrolled himself into the S.A.N.D.F where he did basic training in Heidelberg and was then placed with 61 Mechanical Battalion stationed at Oshivelo Military base in Namibia. This is where his love for heavy vehicles grew even more.

After completing his National Service he studied Mechanical Engineering Draughting and Mechanics at Verwoerdburg Tech in Pretoria, but his love for trucking led him to travel the roads of Africa crossing the Continent many times over.
In 1993 Grizz became dad to his first beautiful little girl.
After many disappointments, trails and extreme hard times in his life, he met his soul mate, Naomi in 2005, where after they got married on the 7th of April 2007 - very unexpectedly for Naomi. They got married in church at 20:00 with only 2 witnesses and Naomi’s children in attendance.
Naomi shared in his love for big rigs as she grew up with her father having a motor engineering shop, working on Cummins engines alongside her father. Grizz taught Naomi to drive rigs shortly after and in 2008 they hit the road together. The couple found a little dog next to the road, which they named Klippies and he travelled the long roads with the couple. Their first trucker at heart dog child. Together they travelled through Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Lesotho and South-Africa
In September 2009 the couple settled down in Randfontein, where they still reside.
As the years passed he changed the style of his songs to fit the trucking community. There are very few songs about our truckers in South Africa and about the role they play in our every day lives and everything they have to endure on the roads of Africa, and when he was done writing them he sent it to Naomi.

During a trip to Botswana, Grizz created one of his own version songs – Lang Pad Broers - and sent it to Naomi. Changing songs shortens the road and eases the longing for her being away from home for weeks on end. She put the song on one of the social pages of Facebook for the long distance truckers, as a challenge for all truckers to show their talents or ways they find to cope with the everyday day travel far from home.
As Grizz crossed the border into Botswana, where signal for him was non existent for almost a day, she surprised him when he spoke to her again. Telling him what she had done was another story, as he sang to and for her out of his love for her and only her.
Grizz never believed that the song on Facebook would even get a 100 likes, and Naomi made a bet with him that if it reached a 100 likes he must complete the song and have it recorded professionally. The next morning there was 104 likes. The response on the Facebook post was overwhelming and Grizz had people contacting him from places as far as Nebraska and Alaska inquiring where they can get his music.
Naomi started looking into recording studios. Unfortunately 2 recording studios took the couple for a ride, but this brought them to Andre Hartman from Infinity Studios where Grizz recorded his first CD Nostalgie where after he soon followed with his second CD Classic Rock.
Grizz is a trucker at heart and his original songs are all trucking related. His first recorded original “Langpad terug na jou” he wrote in 10 minutes when he visited a friend to check out his new music room.
Soon after Grizz followed up with Broers van die Langpad, Old School Trucker, Scania Hooter and A Truckers Prayer which was written by Naomi.
The couple was nominated for the SACMAF Awards where they receive the award for Best Gospel Original.
Naomi enters Grizz into a singing competition, where the organiser announces on the day of participation that some of the entrants will be contacted to take part in short films in Channel Via (147) on DSTV.
A week later Naomi was stunned when she opened their emails and found that Grizz was invited.
Grizz then completed online projects and attended workshops. Six months later Grizz was on set in Dullstroom playing the part of an undercover policeman in the movie “Skemer Kinders”.
A few weeks later Grizz received a call from ABS Productions inviting him to play the role of a school headmaster in the short film “Die Eilanders”

The Bats! South Africa's answer to the Beatles!
By: Lizma
News Image 20220530150524THEBATSSOUTHAFRICA

Dubbed South Africa's answer to the Beatles, the pop group The Bats was formed in October 1964 and consisted of group members Eddie Eckstein (drums/vocals), Barry Jarman (guitar/trumpet/concertina), Jimmy Dunning (guitar) and Paul Ditchfield (keyboard/guitar/bass/vocals). Paul, Barry and Eddie knew each other well and had wanted to form a group for a long time, but had been prevented from doing so by their respective contracts with various bands.

Barry suggested they form a beat trio with the express purpose of making records. Jimmy Dunning, who had played with them before, was unanimously nominated to fill the gap of lead guitarist. After finally getting together, they arranged an audition with Matt Mann, then A & R Manager at G.R.C. (and later owner of RPM Record Company), who signed them to the CBS label and produced their first single, All I Got. The group were quibbling with each other about an appropriate name. In an attempt to restore order, Matt Mann yelled "You're All Bats!" and so "The Bats" was born.

The Bats re-formed in 2000. Barry Jarman was approached, but said, "Been there, done that," and declined. Unfortunately, Barry later passed on. Derek Gordon took Barry's place in the line-up, and continues to serve in the group. Although the Bats are now not in the mould of high end entertainers, they continue to "wow" audiences with their 1960s and 1970s music. Their music and comedy presentations are still polished shows, fit for Pieter Toerien's Monte Casino Theatre in Fourways, Gauteng, South Africa.

The Bats are also known for songs like “Weltevrede stasie”, “Groen en Goud” and “Shabby little hut”, just to name a few. The group started making music again around 2014. On the 27th of May this year Eddie Eckstein said, and I quote: “Well, what do you know. Believe it or not, The Bats have just played two packed houses at Die Boer Theatre in Cape Town. Because of Covid, we last played in November 2019. Our old bones creaked a bit but it was a special evening filled with music and laughter. This is also an achievement, as we have now been a band for 58 years. Who knows, we may be doing a few more gigs in the near future.”

Clive Bruce, die "Midnight Cowboy" van S.A. se Country musiek!
By: Lizma
News Image 20220523132719CLIVEBRUCEDIEMIDNI

Clive Bruce is in Kaapstad gebore. Hy het saam met sy broer onder die gedissiplineerde hand van hul moeder, Patricia, grootgeword – selfs op haar dag ‘n goeie operasangeres vir Pact. Sy ouers is ongelukkig geskei toe Clive nog jonk was, en sy vader is toe later met die bekende Virginia Lee getroud. Op skool het hy klassieke klavierlesse ontvang, in die skoolkoor gesing, en in die skoolorkes gespeel. Tydens sy skooldae het hy ook reeds sy eie groep gestig, en kort daarna as baskitaarspeler in verskeie groepe gespeel, waaronder Spectres, Sweet Corruption, Timepiece en Staccatos. Benewens die kitaar kan hy ook die klavier en tromme goed bespeel.

In die laat sestigerjare besluit Clive om ‘n dansorkes met skoolvriende te vorm, asook ‘n solo-loopbaan met opnames te begin. Sy eerste plaatopnemes was vir Trutone in 1969. Virginia Lee, toe reeds ‘n countrylegende, het na ‘n besoek aan Engeland en Holland ‘n kortspeler getiteld Sally Sunshine saamgebring en voorgestel dat Clive dit moet opneem. Hy het daarvan gehou en dit in 1971 opgeneem by haar destydse plate-maatskappy Dominant Records. Die snit was dadelik ‘n treffer op Springbokradio se nasionale Top 20-treffersparade, wat gebaseer was op amtelike landswye verkope, sowel as nommer een op die gewilde L.M. Radio Treffersparade.

Verdere nasionale gewildheid en blootstelling het gevolg toe Clive as sanger en aanbieder van die hoogs suksesvolle countrymusiekprogram op televisie, Sing Country, ons tussen die jare 1985 en 1990 vermaak het. Tussen 1993 en 1996 word Clive weer nader getrek as gasheer – die keer van die gewilde musiekvideo-versoek-program, Rewind. Die Sing Country-reeks, wat terloops tot vandag toe nog die langlopendste plaaslike musiekprogram op televisie was, is by Clive se Zillertal-restaurant in Pretoria opgeneem.

Hy het behoorlik saam met die ABC van Suid-Afrikaanse musikante gewerk, en ook saam met Vicki du Preez, Joanna Field, Gene Rockwell en Vangie Coker in duet opgeneem. Clive was ook lid van OTH (Over The Hillbillies) saam met Lance James, Joanna Field, Billy Forrest, Sally Vaughn en Vangie Coker. OTH het vyf albums/CD’s vrygestel.

Clive is nog steeds woonagtig in Pretoria.

Billy Forrest, a success on so many levels!

William Charles Boardman, aka Billy Forrest, was born in Kimberley on June 6, 1940. He grew up mostly in Johannesburg and at some point also attended school in Bloemfontein. Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and Marty Wilde are some of the famous artists at the time who inspired Billy to become a Rock 'n Roll star himself. Billy became a member of the band called “The Giants” and his first recording with this band happened in 1960.

Two years later, and after “The Giants” were disbanded, Billy started his solo career with the release of his debut album “Come back to me my love”. During 1963 Billy started recorded “Country and Western” for the first time and his popularity starts to grow. His first hit “Hello Operator” was released in December 1964 and for this Billy received a golden disc as well as a Sari award in 1965 for “Top Male Vocalist - Country & Western”.

One of the most important moves Billy made in 1966 was to team up with Billy Andrews and form the duo The Dream Merchants. This duo are still seen as the most successful pop group with a number of hits like “Love minus zero”, “Land of 1000 dances”, “The land of milk and honey” and “The Rattler”. The Dream Merchants also won a Sari award for “Best Beat artists” that year and this also led to a recording contract with British record company Decca Records. After returning from England in 1967, Andrews moved to Australia and Billy changed direction to become a music producer. During this time Billy also recorded under the pseudonym Quentin E. Klopjaeger and “Lazy life” was released in June 1968 and received platinum status during December of that year and the two hits “Melody Fayre” and “Abergavenny” followed soon after.

Billy also recorded other artists like Staccatos (Cry to me), Wanda Arletti (Zanzibar) and Omega Ltd (Tchaikovsky 1) and after establishing his own company he recorded more artists like Des & Dawn Lindberg (The Seagull's Name Was Nelson), Billy & Sharon Tandy (Hello-A), Billy's other pseudonym William E. (Lovely Lorraine), Mimi Coertse (Do you love me?) and Ipi Tombi! By the end of the ‘80’s The Dream Merchants were brought back to life by Billy when Bobby Louw joined Billy as the new duo. Their new album called “Dream on” as well as the title track became a hit in South AFrica. “Tiny bubbles” was another hit recorded by Billy and, with the help of the aero chocolate advert, it sold over 100 000 copies!

During 2021 Billy Forrest released his book called “Swimming upstream”. This book, in his own words, is Billy’s story, the journey of a true South African music legend. Buy “Swimming Upstream” here: https://www.amazon.com/Always-Swimming-Upstream-legend-Forrest-ebook/dp/B09FRW1KGS

News Image 20220421161259JOHNEDMONDTHEBUSHC

John Edmond (born 18 November) is a Rhodesian folk singer and retired soldier who became popular in the 1970's for his Rhodesian patriotic songs. He reached the height of his fame during the Rhodesian Bush War where he was sometimes known as the "Bush Cat".

John Edmond is somewhat of a legend around campfires from Zambia to Zululand and from Walvis Bay to Vilanculos. Singer, songwriter, entertainer, storyteller, author and bush pilot. He has been there, done it all and fantastically still does it! His musical career has taken him through the 60's, 70's pop, country and TV eras with 7 smash South Africa hits in a row. Along with Dave Mills, the only man in South Africa to ever do this. "Toy Train", "Pasadena", "Round and Around", the list is endless...

He is an icon in Zimbabwe and to this day has dominated their charts. His Zimsongs CD was No 1 for the whole of 2001! John is also the creator of "Tales of the Game Rangers" Series — a 4 album set of bush songs and stories that are still selling steadily since their release in 1989.
Other well-known albums in campfire circles are "Circle of Life" (Long before Elton!) "Wild and Beautiful and Free" containing songs like "Jock of the Bushveld" (the original before the movies) and "Campfire 'n Jamboree" for Scouts and Guides.
John's CD "Born in Africa" has been selling internationally following his tours to the USA, U.K, Australasia and Zimbabwe. On it are stunning new songs along with revivals of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", "Skokiaan" and "Meadowlands". John has represented South Africa at the World Song Festival in Tokyo, he is a regular at the International Game Rangers Convention held at Berg 'n Dal in the Kruger National Park and at almost every Rhodesian and Zimbabwe reunion held around the world.
John is at home in venues from Tokyo's Budokan Hall to Berg 'n Dal's outdoor boma, Bakobang Bush Lapa's to Mabula convention's.

John is still very much on life's journey and is still as creative as ever - he still writes, composes and performs!
