Joburg Day 2013

94.7 Highveld Stereo in partnership with MTN had a lot of us up bright and early to be at the Highveld Stereo studios on Friday morning. Why? To officially launch Joburg Day 2013 happening on 14 September 2013 at Crocodile Creek Polo Club.

Darren Simpson and the rest of the Breakfast Xpress crew revealed MTN as their partner for this year’s Joburg Day, as well as confirming some of the acts for the day.

947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece

This past Sunday was the third of the 947Unplugged events at The Venue in Melrose Arch – The 947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concerts… No, this wasn’t an Elvis tribute concert, like the story Elvis Blue related during the show, it was an Elvis Blue unplugged session, with Stuart Reece opening up the night.

With Mark Pilgrim as MC for the night, the venue filled with fans and friends and a close, intimate setting, Stuart Reece and Elvis Blue played some of their best songs, with some new songs in the mix too. Despite having a baby girl only a few days before, Elvis Blue put in an excellent show, even coming back to perform 2 more encore songs for the fans.

Another awesome night, as expected thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concer...

947Unplugged with Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky

Last week this time I was at The Venue in Melrose Arch with 94.7 Highveld Stereo

and Real Concerts… And we all went wireless, yet again. Yup, I was busy having a blast while Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky were rocking out on stage, unplugged (See where I get the “wireless” thing from now? No? Anyways, tally-ho-James)…

With The Venue sold out and a capacity crowd packed in between the stage and available bars, Daniel Baron opened the show with 6 songs from his album, “It’s Time”, with Dan Patlansky showing the crowd what he can do on a guitar… And trust me, this guy can play a guitar, while playing some songs off of his new acoustic album “Wooden Thoughts.”

You missed the show? Well, first of all, shame on you!… But, there are two more events are on the way… Next in the line-up for the 947U...

947Unplugged with Jack Parow and more

This past Sunday I got to attend 94.7 Higveld Stereo’s first show of the 947Unplugged series of shows happening at The Venue in Melrose Arch.

This first event featured Zander Tyler, better known as Jack Parow who took to the stage to perform for his fans in a slightly different setting… An unplugged live session. With an opening act by Die Tuindwergies and an awesome show by the mad hatter, Jack Parow himself, the first night of the 947Unplugged events, in association with Real Concerts, Computicket and The Venue Melrose Arch set off to an epic start.
