Dan Patlansky to launch new album at Big Blues Meets Rock Fest

2016-02-24 06:00

Cape Town – It’s almost time for The Big Blues Meets Rock Festival 2016 at Hillcrest Quarry.

This year the festival will be taking place on 9 April and one of the highlights of the show will be the official (Cape Town) launch of Dan Patlansky's brand new album, Introvertigo.

Patlansky says of the new album: "Fans can expect a unique brand of Blues Rock born out of guitar playing whilst striving for strong songwriting. I am very excited and proud of this album, and honestly feel this is my best release to date."

Patlansky has just completed a hugely successful two month European Tour with the incredible Joe Satriani and he has gained huge recognition overseas including being voted as one of the Top Ten best Rock guitarists in the world today.

Another great addition to this year's line-up is Crimson House. Grassroots, soul lifting, foot-stomping, heartmoving audio candy, built on a brotherhood that will outlive the timelessness of music they create. The music will take you back a century and right into the modern age within the same bar-line.

Needing no introduction, the line-up also includes the Gerald Clark Trio, The Blues Broers and Mark Haze among others.

Food Stalls, family entertainment and blues rocking goodness will be yours for 10 hours straight. Doors open at 12:15. There will also be a lucky draw worth nearly R24 000: A Fender Stratocaster, a cash prize and a Paul Bothner Music voucher will be going home to a lucky ticket holder. Lucky draw tickets will be available at the festival for R30 but you'll also get a free lucky draw entry worth R30 with all Computicket bookings. You can collect your lucky draw ticket at the gate on presentation of your Computicket.

Tickets: R220 at Computicket or phone 0861 9158000.
