The annual Ard Matthews and Friends Charity Concert will be taking place for the fourth year running on Thursday 29th of August 2013. The concert will be taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Cape Town Upper Eastside in Woodstock. The popular South African singer, Ard Matthews who is also lead singer of the acclaimed band Just Jinjer, has been at the forefront of this concert for the past 3 years along with the assistance of top events and PR company, The Little Black Book. The annual charity concert brings together great South African talent to raise money for a worthy cause.

Funds raised through ticket sales will go to a trust called “We The Good People”, a charitable cause, founded by Ard along with two other trustees, Alistair Hargreaves (Springbok/Sharks Lock) and Sean Temple (owner of Flux Motion Kettle Bell Gym). The simple rule of this organization is – trust – and they hope to gain the trust of the public when it comes to the appropriation of charitable efforts. The charity aims to educate the public about the importance of giving back to others no matter how busy they get, and to allow 100% transparency when it comes to the distribution of the funds. It will also be facilitated by one of the world’s top law firms, Norton Rose, as part of their pro-bono social investment.

    Dan Patlansky, South Africa’s rock and blues guitar wizard, is on the move again – and is promoting his latest CD “Move My Soul”.

    The CD was produced by Dan at the renowned Peace Of Eden Studio in Knysna and mixed by Peter Auret of Watershed.

    The music continues Dan’s commitment and driving passion for music and features an explosive mix of wild blues, rock and roll and breathtaking balladeering.

    Since his previous tour Dan has recorded and performed with Jesse Clegg, played at various venues in Gauteng and headlined the Benefit Concert for musician “Judge Coetzee.

    Dan will be accompanied on this tour by Andy Turrell on drums and Errol “Smelly” Fellows on bass.

    The band featured at the FORR Festival in Mozambique and the Durban International Blues Festival during September.

    This tour will take the band across the country from cities to villages and from theatres to bars in a determined effort to move your soul.
