1st Project

1st Project

Based: Johannesburg

1st Project – South Africa’s pioneer industrial percussion act.

By using only drums to create what can be best described as ‘Aggressive Percussion!’, 1st Project has truly made their mark on the entertainment industry, and over the past eleven years, have continued to captivate audiences with their unique musical style, passion and vigor…

The History:
1st Project started in 1999, at a music school in Johannesburg, South Africa. The concept behind the group was to change the common view of drumming groups – a bunch of hippies banging drums around a fire, to four young males smashing drums and sweating out a live show that demands attention!
Since then they have played over 1500 shows, toured over 20 countries, and been featured in hundreds of media spots worldwide, marking them as South Africa’s biggest drumming act.

1st Project boast being the only drumming act to receive 2 South African Music Award nominations; win a World Music Award in China, as well as the first South African band to have a full one hour music special on MNET and across DSTV South Africa, Africa and Asia.

DURATION: 2 x 20 minute sets for maximum impact one 30-minute set is recommended.

Beauty and the Beats

Beauty and the Beats

Based: Johannesburg.

The show combines an edginess of beat-boxer with the sophisticated virtouso element of a violinist. The idea is to show how two different worlds can combine and work together to create greater impact.

Classic melodies meet street-smart beats.

Morgan begins the show by wow-ing the audience with the variety of sounds a beat-boxer can make with their vocal chords. At some point he hums a simple tune like the beginning of the well-known ‘Fur Elise’. Kristel on violin echoes this theme off stage. Gradually the idea of two worlds colliding is unfolded through a medley of songs ranging from well-known classics and South African Favourites to contemporary hits. A male vocalist can also be added to create a bigger impact.

Some repertoire to include:

  • Fur Elise
  • Vivaldi Four Seasons ‘Storm’
  • Fever
  • Ndihamba Nawe
  • Nkosi Sikelele
  • Meadowlands
  • My Sarie Marias
  • Game of Thrones Theme Song
  • Wake me up-Avicci
  • A DJ got us Falling in love
