I’ve been real fortunate to watch this band perform and grow over the years. Not only are they truly talented, they really are some of the nicest gentlemen you will meet! So when the news broke they will be doing a little tour internationally I could not help but let out a happy smile!

After taking control of their brand and announcing their new company 34 Music, Mi Casa embark on a new journey to their international tour.

What a way to spend 1 May, Workers Day, other than tasting sweet tastes at Dirty Rotten Tequila Festival?


On the 1st of May 2015, Johannesburg will see the second installment of DIRTY ROTTEN TEQUILA FESTIVAL. DIRTY ROTTEN TEQUILA FESTIVAL is the premium tequila festival in South Africa, featuring more than 20 tequila brands. DIRTY ROTTEN TEQUILA FEST is sure to bring all your friends together with a shot (or two), because everyone knows that nothing brings new and old friends together like sharing a #TequilaFace.
At DIRTY ROTTEN TEQUILA FESTIVAL, you will be able to sample over 20 different tequila’s by 8 different brands from all over the world. There will also be shooter games, a rodeo bull and a #TequilaFace photo booth to add to the entertainment.
Nothing goes better with a shot of tequila than some dirty rock music – which is why the Dirty Rock Stage will feature artists like Blazin Gooch, Coelacanth, Full Swing Band, Go Barefoot, New Academics, Sol Gems, The Black Cat Bones and The Ts & Cs. Line up times still to be confirmed.
If tequila makes you want to dance, there will also be a Let’s Swing It Dance Floor featuring Plaat Japie, The Stage Pig, Michael Lesar’s 3 hour set, featuring Greg Georgiades on ukulele and a live burlesque performance by Miss Oh.

Rise & Shine Festival

There has always been something special for me about Rise & Shine Festival, from that very first one, with that early morning Yoga session, and when I say early morning Yoga session, I mean I sat on the grass with a coffee & a iced-tea with a little Vodka for a kick, taking in the early morning fresh air whilst the Yogi led the session 😀
