Date: 19 October 2019

Information:

Time: 14h00-16h00! 

With a name like Renè Gregory Reichert you would not exactly expect a South African but  

fortunately, I am proudly South African and was born and raised in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng.

I was born with music in my blood, and my dream started when I was in the Abraham Kriel Children's Home.

At the age of 7 years I was addicted to programs like “Geraas”; “Bel Boks”; “Lirieke Raai” and “Noot vir Noot”

Never have I missed one single program and afterwards I went straight to my room to practice and sing.  Danie Botha’s “Wenners” and Andre Swartz’s “Ek wil jou nooit weer sien” were two of my favorite songs.

When there was Children’s home trips to the auditorium and concerts, I was always in the front row and ready to participate. My dream became a reality and an exciting time in my life began.

During my matric year I worked in pubs and clubs as a bartender and later as a disc jockey in dance clubs because of my love for music.

I made my breakthrough in 2009 when I saw an advert on the social network Facebook from a well-known artist who was looking for a sound engineer.

I was successful in applying for the position and made use of this opportunity where I am today.

Thereafter I started writing songs for other artists whereby I decided to make a name for myself in the competitive music industry as I am very committed and excel at what I do.  I am and extrovert and a people’s person and therefore love to entertain people.

I have already released three albums.

In 2014 my first album was released titled “Bring terug jou hart” which all songs were written by me

In 2015 my second album was released which was a double album. “Merke gereed lets go” CD 1 on this album was also my own songs written by myself and CD 2 was country covers.

My third album “Net vir jou” was released in 2016 and was proudly produced by none other than the well-known producer Ferdi Skead.  This album is currently doing very well and I am planning on releasing my new album in 2018.

Information:

The entrance fee is JUST R5 per person! 

Hierdie drie musikante, Hugo Ludik, Reynardt Hugo en Kyle Grant, het nou maar een maal ’n manier om pragtige lirieke te verweef met hulle kenmerkende unieke styl en dit in perfekte harmonie met luisteraars te deel. Hulle nuwe album, Bewe is in Mei 2018 uitgereik en bou voort op die wenresep wat van dag een af aanhangers se harte verower het.

 Die nuwe album is deur die publiek opgeraap en die eerste enkelsnit, Sê My se tong-in-die-kies musiekvideo het al byna ‘n halfmiljoen kyke op YouTube.

Bewe het hierdie jaar met die Ghoema Musiektoekenning vir die kategorie Album Deur ‘n Groep of Duo weggestap en is ook bekroon as Groep Van Die Jaar.

 Gras groei nie onder hierdie dinamiese groep talentvolle mans se voete nie en hulle toer die land vol met optredes by damesoggende, groot feeste en selfs privaatfunksies.

OOR DIE ADAMS

 Hugo Ludik is ’n skrywer, sanger, kitaarspeler en talentvolle krieketspeler. Hy het in ’n huis vol musiek grootgeword. Dit het sy liefde daarvoor laat vlamvat en hom geïnspireer om homself op sestien te leer kitaarspeel. “Ek luister regtig na alles. Daar is nie ’n genre wat ek spesifiek nie van hou nie. Solank ’n liedjie ’n goeie melodie of goeie lirieke het (verkieslik albei) dan hou ek daarvan. Van alle groepe het Queen waarskynlik die grootste invloed op my eie styl gehad,” vertel hy. Sy eerste openbare optrede was in 2003 toe hy as regsstudent by die Universiteit Stellenbosch aan die interkoshuis-serenadekompetisie deelgeneem het. Daarna het hy vir vyf jaar lank saam met sy broer, die sanger en akteur Stefan Ludik, opgetree. Op ’n stadium het hy besef dat daar is ’n tekort is aan oorspronklike Afrikaanse liedjies en toe self begin skryf. In 2008 wen hy en Willie van der Merwe die Huisgenoot Tempo-liedjieskryfkompetisie met hulle liedjie, Papsopwinterwaternat, wat later deur Kurt Darren opgeneem is. Behalwe vir die musiek op ADAM se albums, skryf hy ook liedjies vir talle groot sterre soos Kurt Darren, Willem Botha, Pieter Koen en Gerhard Steyn. Hy en Vaughan Gardiner het ook hulle eie produksiemaatskappy, Muse Productions, wat musiek opneem vir verskeie kunstenaars. Wanneer jy hom vra waar die idees vir al sy liedjies vandaan kom, sê hy: “Al my liedjies kom uit persoonlike ervaring en ondervinding - hetsy direk of indirek. So ek skryf altyd oor dinge wat ek mee kan assossieer: liefde, geluk, tragedie, familie. Die musiekbedryf het my geleer om eerlik en opreg te wees met menseverhoudings en musiek… dan slaap jy soveel beter in die aand.”

 Reynardt Hugo is al vir nege jaar in die musiekbedryf doenig as sanger en liedjieskrywer. Hierdie vermaaklikheidskunstenaar is bekend vir sy rol as dr. Tertius Jonker in die gewilde kykNET-sepie, Binnelanders, het al in verskeie teaterstukke en verhoogproduksies, waaronder Houtkruis, gespeel en tree gereeld as seremoniemeester en spreker by funksies op. Hy was ook onlangs te sien as gasspeler in die fliek, Vuil Wasgoed en spog met ’n BA Drama-graad van die Universiteit van Pretoria. Reynardt is mal oor sekere klassieke- en popmusiek asook instrumentele snitte vanaf die klankbane van flieks en glo dat dit belangrik is om jou voete stewig op die aarde te hou, al is jy hoe suksesvol. As jy hom vra watter werk hy sou wou doen as hy nie mense vermaak het nie, verklap hy: “Ek sou dit love om te kon skilder en dat mense my werke kon koop, maar ek kan ongelukkig nie baie goed teken nie.” Hy is saam met Hugo verantwoordelik vir die skryf van ADAM se liedjies en sê: “Aan die een kant is die skryfproses baie meganies. Jy skryf spesifiek vir die mark. Jy moet, anders gaan jy nie ’n lewe kan maak nie. Aan die ander kant is dit baie persoonlik. Dit kom soos wat jou hart die lewe onvoorwaardelik liefhet en jy jouself oopmaak vir inspirasie.”

 Kyle Grant is ’n sanger, danser en akteur wat sy musiek- en verhoogloopbaan by Barnyard Teaterproduksies begin het. Sy ouers is albei musikante, sy ma ’n sanger en pa ’n dromspeler, en musiek is dus nog altyd in sy bloed. Hy het 2003 sy eerste solo-album opgeneem en is al sestien jaar in die musiekbedryf. Van die hoogtepunte in sy loopbaan, sluit in sy rol as Schalk in die televisiereeks Egoli, asook rolle in suksesvolle verhoogproduksies en musiekblyspele soos Dirty Dancing, The Musical en High School Musical (waarin hy hoofrolle vertolk het), Chess – The Musical, Sunset Boulevard en Hairspray wat almal internasionaal opgevoer is. Hy is mal oor Jazz en R&B en meen dat Boyz II Men, Paolo Nutini, Frank Sinatra en Brian McKnight van die grootste invloede was op sy eie musiekloopbaan. As die vermaakbedryf nie sy loopbaan was nie, sou hy graag met diere wou werk omdat hy ’n baie sagte plek vir die natuur het. Hy was ook in sy jonger dae ’n SA-roeikampioen. Wanneer jy hom vra wat sy werk hom geleer het, antwoord hy: “Om myself te wees sonder ’n regisseur. Dit was ’n groot aanpassing om van die teaterwêreld na die popmusiekbedryf oor te slaan. Ek moes ook leer om meer oop met die publiek te wees. Ek was altyd ’n baie skaam en private mens, maar die Afrikaners het my bietjie uit my dop laat kruip.” 

 ADAM was nog altyd een van die mees hardwerkende groepe in Suid-Afrika en het beslis die vrugte daarvan gepluk. Drie van hulle albums, ADAM (2011), Vir Jou Gemaak (2012) en Goud (2012), het goue status bereik. In 2014 word hulle liedjie, Sal Oorlog Vir Jou Maak, ingesluit as deel van die klankbaan van die plaaslike lokettreffer, Pad Na Jou Hart, en het dit ’n oornagsukses geword. Nie net het die treffer op die nommer een posisie van radiostasies se speellyste gepronk nie, maar dit is ook vereer met ’n Huisgenoot Tempo-benoeming vir Liedjie van die Jaar en ’n Ghoema-toekenning vir Liedjie van die Jaar. Ander Ghoema-musiektoekennings op hulle kerfstok sluit in Beste Nuweling (2011) en Groep van die Jaar (2015).

 Hoogtevrees het in 2017 twee Ghoema-toekennings (Groep van die Jaar en Beste Album deur ’n Groep of Duo) en ’n SAMA-toekenning vir Beste Popalbum opgeraap en die titelsnit, wat deur Hugo en Reynardt geskryf is, het verskeie weke bo-aan die treffersparades van groot radiostasies gekuier. “Dit gaan oor ’n romantiese verhouding wat by ’n kruispad kom en jy dan wonder: wat nou? Dit is ’n polsende popliedjie met ’n vinnige tempo waarop jy lekker sal kan dans”, vertel Hugo Ludik, die derde en stigterslid van die groep. Die tweede enkelsnit vanaf die album, Dis Al Wat Ek Het, wat daaroor gaan dat al wat ’n mens eintlik het om te gee liefde is, was ook ’n kitssukses en is baie goed deur die publiek ontvang.

 Die groep het ook ’n Engelse kortspeleralbum, Young and Wild, uitgereik saam met Daniel Baron, wat baie goed ontvang is. Buiten vir hulle plaaslike sukses, het hulle ook vir die Ierse groep, Westlife, geopen in Namibië en vir die Australiese rockgroep, Air Supply, tydens hulle Suid-Afrikaanse toer.

 In 2018 Dewald expanded into television by joining the group of mentor’s in VIA TV’s “Die Kontrak”. Dewald was also responsible for the theme song, the aptly named “Nuwe Begin”, which Dewald penned with Riana Nel

 “Elektrisiteit”, Dewald’s 1st album in 3 years contains the electrifying hits “So sterk soos ’n vrou”, “Stop” and along with the titel track, “Nuwe Begin” and an Incredible Duet of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” with Ivan Roux

 Dewald doesn’t take himself too seriously. His favourite hobby is travel and he doesn’t need any excuse to enjoy a couple of drinks with his close friends

 To quote the man himself :

 “Some of us make excuses. The rest of us make history”

Time: 14h00-16h00! 

2019 marks his fourteenth year in the Afrikaans music industry and his versatility and passion for every aspect of his career has made him a favourite amongst young and old. Willem isn’t a performer that one easily forgets. This incredibly talented vocalist with his electrifying stage personality has stolen the hearts of many music lovers across the country.

 Over the past few years many songs from his four albums (Kô Ma Hier, Sê My Nou, My Stem Is Joune en Soen & Vergeet) have been awarded with various awards (Huisgenoot Tempo Award for Best Newcomer in 2007 and the Fiesta Award for Best Presenter in 2012) and nominations (SAMA nomination for Sê My Nou in 2010, Huisgenoot Tempo- and Ghoema nomination for My Stem Is Joune in 2013).

 He has also established himself as a credible movie (Liefling – Die Movie, Pretville), television (Donkerland, Sterlopers) and stage (TREE AAN, Reik Na Die Sterre, Altyd In My Drome) actor. He is a natural in front of the camera and features regularly as a guest presenter for Kwêla on kykNET and until recently the anchor presenter for the popular music programme Top 20 on kykNET NOU! Just as comfortable behind the camera he photographs our country’s biggest stars for magazine covers.

 In 2018 Willem and Nadia Beukes put their heads and talents together for the production Paaie Van Hoop to inspire and entertain families across the country. The first kykNET Top 20 tour also kicked off at the beginning of 2019 and Willem and Franja du Plessis visited various cities in South Africa over three week period. Willem also hosted the highly acclaimed kykNET Ghoema Music Awards for the second year running as live stage productions and live broadcast on television.

 Willem released his latest single, Een Shot in August this year which ranked on many radio stadion charts and is without a doubt of the biggest party songs of 2019. He is currently back in studio for recordings on his fith album due for release in February 2020.

 THE PERSON BEHIND THE TALENT

Willem is a born musician and has been smitten with singing for as long as he can remember. “I have loved music deeply since an early age. All of my grandparents were exceptionally musical and loved art. Singing was a hobby for me on our family farm in Riversdale, where I grew up, so I have always enjoyed it,” he explains.

Although he has been professionally involved in music since the age of seventeen, he only truly became well-known in 2006, when he finished in second place on the first Afrikaans Idols competition. After that it became his full time career and focus. At 32, most young South Africans are content with a qualification or fixed career to help them build their dreams, but Willem is already living his. He made history in 2013 as the first South African to compete in the renowned Eurovision Song Contest. He was part of the Belarus team and advanced to the finals. More than 100-million viewers watched the final in 44 countries. He has also performed in, among others, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Dubai.

Aside from his foreign exploits, Willem considers various local successes as the highlights of his career. “There are so many things that stand out for me: All the albums I have released, films like Liefling – Die Movie and Pretville, television series like Donkerland and Sterlopers, as well as theatre productions like TREE AAN, Reis Na Die Sterre and Altyd In My Drome. I jokingly say that I enjoy theatre production the most nowadays. There I can indulge both my passions at once: Singing and Acting,” he shares. Breek Op In Stereo and Vat Oor By My Jesus can be considered two of his most successful singles, the former having already reached the number one position on several radio station charts.

He has, of course, also shared the stage with some of the country’s greatest artists at some of the largest festivals (KKNK, Aardkop, Innibos, et cetera) and variety concerts (Skouspel). Furthermore, he was a guest artist on Steve Hofmeyr’s Haloda-DVD, which was released in September of 2012. “It is always a great honour to be invited to work with Steve,” he says. “I love performing live and being on stage. That is where I am in my element. That is where I am truly satisfied.” He would still like to work with artists such as Corlea, Hemelbesem, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Joshua na die Ree¨n, in future. “Every single person in the industry, who makes a success of his life and career, is an inspiration to me. I know how much hard work is required to get there. The drive of the artists in our country inspires me to work harder and better every day.”

When you ask about the man behind the beautiful voice, he reveals that he is a perfectionist, who needs to be 200% satisfied with everything he does. “I have a great desire for adventure and cannot really sit still. My music gives me the opportunity to see every nook and cranny of our country. What a privilege,” he reveals. Because animals are one of his biggest passions, he would most probably have been a veterinarian had he not entertained people for a living. When his schedule allows it, he still likes to relax on their family farm, and makes time for horse-riding. He has Springbok colours in horse riding. Country music has always been one of his great loves, because he enjoys the way in which it narrates a story. This has clearly also had a massive impact on his own style and approach. “These days, I regularly listen to Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift’s older music,” he explains.

His favourite quote about music is that if your dreams don’t scare you, you are not dreaming big enough, and he is definitely not scared to dream big and work hard. But for now, this humble, talented artist is first winning the hearts of the public, the media and his fellow artists with his unique talent. We cannot wait to see what dreams he has yet to share with us in the future.

His brand new album is due for release in September 2019 and we can’t wait to see what the new musical journey has in store for this talented young man.

Heuning’s new single, Maatstaf vir my hart, will be hitting radio nationwide today

South Africa’s award-winning country duo is back with a brand-new single, Maatstaf Vir My Hart, which not only builds on the unique country-pop style they’ve become famous for, but which also satisfies even the most discerning ear.

The latest release by Heuning – the double act made up of Jeanette Pretorius and Hansie Roodt – combines an easy listening tune with goose bump-worthy lyrics that will steal your heart. The song, penned by Vaughan Gardiner, tells the story of someone who has lost her love, but who looks at the positive by cherishing the time they had together and measuring all potential relationships against the love they shared. “I usually write our music myself, but when we heard this song we immediately loved it as it fits perfectly with the style we want to convey,” explains Jeanette. “While the music is upbeat and energetic, I think the lyrics will truly resonate with people.”

The single is the first off their new album, due for release later this year, and a music video is already being planned. It is also the group’s first recording with new member Hansie, and they hope that their music will be meaningful to listeners; even if only to make them smile at the end of a long day.

Heuning’s self-titled debut album, which was released in 2012, was an instant hit among young and old alike. It not only won a Ghoema Award for Best Country Album and a Huisgenoot Tempo nomination for Best Newcomer in 2013, but also yielded several radio hits, including As ek Val, Bietjie Langer Bly, Drome, Skree and Ek Wil Met Jou Dans. In addition, it produced a number of successful music videos. The release of the album Drome in 2015 gave them an opportunity to perform at the Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, California.

Despite one of the original members, Henk Dercksen, going to Spain in 2016, the group was still in such high demand that Jeanette decided to swap the duo for a live band, which turned out to be very popular. Hansie, who played bass guitar for the band at the time, fitted in so well due to his talent and versatility, that it was decided to return to the group’s original format.

Jeanette Pretorius has had a passion for music from a very young age. She recorded her debut album with Boet Pretorius of Decibel Music at the age of 12, after which five other albums (including two for children and a country album) followed. Although she loves a wide variety of music, she lists Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood and Patsy Cline as her greatest musical influences. Passionate about family, Jeanette is not only a talented singer, but also an avid songwriter, yodeler and actress. In addition to many guest appearances on television, she has also performed on a number of lifestyle programmes, including Jukebox, DKNT, Noot vir Noot, Bravo, Kwêla and many more. “Everyday things that happen to me and the people around me, inspire my songwriting. I believe that music can help us turn negatives into positives,” says the blonde. That is why she believes that she must make the most of her God-given talent. When she is not performing with Hansie, she is hard at work on her solo children’s project. “I love performing with fellow musicians and seeing how people experience and enjoy the music when listening to it,” she adds.

Hansie Roodt grew up in a musical household. His dad was a master guitar player with whom his mom often sang, and his brothers are also keen musicians. His career, however, only kicked off in 2010. Since then, he has experienced many highlights and performed with many celebrities, including Mel Botes. He enjoys a wide spectrum of musical genres, ranging from Jazz to Heavy Metal, and has particular appreciation for the work of John Petrucci and Mark Knopfler. If he wasn’t a musician, he would have loved to become an army pilot. “I think that one can experience incredible freedom in the clouds… and ladies do love a man in uniform,” he says with a twinkle in his eye. The industry has taught him to always be prepared for performances, as there is nothing worse than working with someone who doesn’t know what’s going on. When not on stage, he is the music coordinator at his church. He also gives guitar lessons. “The best part of my career is meeting new people, touring the country and seeing how music touches people,” he says.

The pair has lots of plans and dreams, and hope that their music will continue to reach growing local and international audiences in future. MAATSTAF VIR MY HART is not only going to be a favorite on the charts, but will undoubtedly also build on the success Heuning has already achieved as an alternative country duo whose music speaks directly to the heart.

Born in Maputo, Mozambique in 1979, Pedro discovered his love for Music at an early age but never knew this would turn out to be his career until he was 20 years old. At the age of 15 Pedro started writing his own songs and in the same period he learnt to play the guitar. Thinking Music wasn’t a profitable career, after finishing school Pedro went and did 6 months of Pharmacy, then a year of Marine Biology only to realize that his true calling was in Music. So he packed his bags and moved to Pretoria, South Africa where he did a 3 year National Diploma course in Jazz, Performance and Sound Technology. After this he went to Los Angeles where he studied for a short period of time at the well known Musicians Institute, where he studied Professional song writing and Production.

After returning to South Africa he formed a Rock band called Mrs. B and in 2006 recorded their first album. The band went on to record another 3 albums and was signed by Sting/EMI on a 3 album deal, but the band split up in 2013, by then Pedro was already doing some solo cover shows, later Pedro changed the name of the project to The Barbosa Experience as he felt every time he stepped on stage it was a different experience.

In 2015 Pedro had put another band together and recorded the I GOT NO MONEY album with the Barbosa Experience and featured renown Brazilian Harmonica player Pablo Fagundes in one of the songs in the album.

In January 2017 Pedro decided he wanted to record a few songs with a more international flavor and with higher standards than his previous recordings so he approached Mark Beling, well known Producer in South Africa and who is also a SAMA (South African Music Association) winner. Mark had been wanting to work with Pedro for many years and the two started working on some of Pedro’s songs, in the end a 10 track album was recorded, the album will be launched in September 2017. Pedro believes this is best work, and Mark pushed him vocally and emotionally to get the best out of this album, according to him this is the best collaboration he has ever experienced with a Producer.

Pedro is well known in SA for his electrifying Performances and crowd engagement. Known for creating a great Party atmosphere. However with his new album instead of going for the Party type of sound he decided to go for more heart and soul and the Album became a more Adult contemporary type of album, Rich in heartfelt Melodies and Groove.

Loved by many for his captivating Stage Presence and wide vocal range. He is a respected Musician in the South African Music Scene.

“I pride myself in being a kind, confident, big guy that many have come to know and love. For everyone who has shown Me & My dreams any love & support, I am so Grateful!”
