Music Exchange – South Africa's independent music summit | 21-22 March 2013

Triple M Entertainment books Founder of iconic SA band Bright Blue to perform a FREE Concert in De Waal Park on Sunday 2 Dec 2012

Robin Levetan was the lead vocalist and founder of iconic SA band Bright Blue whose uniquely infectious blend of pop, rock and mbaqanga established them at the forefront of the progressive music scene in the 80’s and 90’s.

Robin’s writing extended to the theatre and his highly acclaimed counter-culture play, “Skyf” broke attendance records at The Baxter and Market Theatres. His second play “Mrs Kaplan and the Witchdoctor” was also performed at The Baxter and was later staged at various festivals in Eastern Europe by students at UCT.

After leaving Bright Blue, Robin continued to write songs and, in 2009, teamed up with producer / musician, Roger Bashew. The pair were joined by Willem Moller (guitar), Paul Tizzard (drums), Selwyn Schneider (keyboards, vocals), Tonia Selley (vocals, percussion), Shaggy Scheepers (keyboards), Buddy Wells (sax) and Jessica Levetan (vocals), together with Bright Blue band mates Ian Cohen (bass) Dan Heymann (piano) and Tom Fox (guitar).

The resulting 12 track album, “A Far Country”, was launched at the CTICC in 2011.

Robin has been performing with a group of top local musicians who will join him at De Waal Park on 2 December from 4pm till 5.30pm (Entrance is free ..) where they will perform songs from the album as well as new material and some Bright Blue favorites. CD’s will be on sale at the event.

The line-up will be:

  • Robin Levetan (vocals)
  • Tonia Selley (vocals, guitar, percussion)
  • Selwyn Schneider (vocals, guitar)
  • David Bass (keyboards)
  • Roger Bashew (bass)
  • Paul Tizzard (drums)
