Rollin on the River
And the South Coast has an idyllic new music venue!
Two weekends ago saw the very first Rollin on the River music festival staged by Little Concerts. Down at Spillers Wharf – the Umzimkulu Adrenalin building. And featuring a headline act no bigger than Dave Marks himself!
Luckily a few intrepid camera people present at the party sent me their tapes and we were able to put a video together of the day. Well, parts of it anyway…
Dave Marks was backed up by a star-studded cast of local musicians who played right into the afternoon and into the rain! The rain never stopped play though. The party just moved into The Port Captain in the Umzimkulu Adrenalin building.
Where The Curry House Blues session played on and on as Dave Marks and John Skuy jammed together into the night.
Fish on the River supplied beer and pizza. The Port Captain made some delicious curry. And as usual many bought their own snacks and drinks. The Fishing Girls from Tweni had their arts and crafts shop popped-up. And we encourage people who make and sell things, to come and pop up a store right here at Umzimkulu Adrenalin, on any Sunday.
Organiser Roelie Rautenbach has announced that from the 31st of October 2021, they will be staging a Little Concerts event every Sunday until January. When we will take break and regroup for 2022 (did I just write 2022!?).
The events start at high noon with setup and sound, music starts playing at about 2pm or so. Don’t forget to bring your fishing rod!
