We at Hands On represent SAs finest African Jazz performers!
Considering the growing popularity of light jazz bands at South African venues we have pleasure in introducing to you the multi-talented Tuxedo Junction, led by popular Saxophonist/penny-whistler Jimi G who, both as the band’s frontline member or as solo artist has built an excellent reputation with Hands On clients throughout South Africa!
Indeed, such is band’s popularity and appeal that our clients fly them from Johannesburg to Cape Town in the knowledge that they are providing their Conference and Incentive groups with the very best!!
But what is it that makes the band so popular… what is it that seems to set them streets ahead of so many other artists doing the rounds?
Well, quite apart from Jimi’s obvious good looks, impeccable manners and suave presentation just how many musicians have you had that offer a genuine ‘3-for the price of one’ entertainment package including (if required) appropriate costume ‘mood’ changes – not many…if any!!!
In addition to playing with his band Jimi (at the client’s request) will commence the evening’s entertainment in a smart black tuxedo while expertly rolling out the blues on saxophone…re-emerges in an attractive and ever-so traditional black Mandela type shirt while he roves from table to table – this time soothing the audience with the romantic, almost mystical sounds of the flute…and then, as the evening really begins to swing along comes Jimi in colorful traditional gear, matching the audience’s mood with the cheerful township sounds of the kwela pennywhistle!
Should your evening call for a top-flight African Jazz band (kindly note that the attractive female vocalist Mantee Nkosi performs as a fourth member) then think no further – Tuxedo Junction is one of the few outfits that Hands On entrust to high-level Government orientated functions with VIP guests from throughout the world! Having Tuxedo as your 3, 4 or 5 piece function band provides you with the option of both on-stage and roving entertainment, i.e. arrival-cocktails, pre-dinner drinks and main event!
