Josh Hawks Band and The Dogs

April 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Pan African/Worldbeat/Electronica/Punk/Rock

Josh Hawks Band + The Dogs

Freshlyground bass player & singer Josh Hawks has teamed up with long time Johnny Clegg drummer Barry Van Zyl to form an exciting new act. Together with guitarist Chris Bakalanga from Kinshasa they make up the ‘Josh Hawks Band’. The sound draws from Pan African Worldbeat, Electronica, Punk & classic Beatles rock & roll…!

Josh, Barry & Chris have spent more than a decade performing at the highest level around the globe at the most prestigious venues & festivals with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Shakira & Carlos Santana. The Josh Hawks Band is the culmination of this pedigree, packaged in the form of a vibrant and proudly Southern African quintet!

Just a wicked Cape Town original band – come hear us howl! Made up of a trio of dudes in a classic rock three piece from Hout Bay, we have Simon Trupp on guitars & vocals, Mark Ruthen on bass & vocals, plus Damian Staz on drums. The guys are just writing, recording & performing original tunes to just make you wanna scream… for those that just want rock music as it should be.

If you like UK contemporary rock, think The Clash, or The Jam, Oasis, & even a splash of the Stone Roses, then The Dog’s.. maybe right what you are looking for.
