It’s the end of the week and time to turn in your homework at Great Dane! Just like every Friday, you can find the best mix of funk, soul and hip hop music spun by some of Great Dane’s regular DJs.

Time: Doors open at 6PM (until late)

Price: R30 cover charge

On Friday, contemporary tribute jazz band, The Tribute Orkestra will be paying homage to South African jazz sextet, The Blue Notes. Now considered one of the great free jazz bands of their era, they’re being revived by the smooth tunes of The Orkestra, who bring something unique and fresh to their sound.

Trumpeter Sydney Mavundla has just completed his debut album. Join his quintet on Saturday night as they take you through his exciting musical repertoire, journeying through old favourites and new tunes!
