Bourbon amp Traffic in Acoustic Friday Debut

The Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC) Acoustic Concert goes instrumental with Bourbon and Traffic, a fairly new local act producing a mixture of original jazz fusion, blues, reggae and some traditional grooves with a twist of rock.

The Acoustic Concert features Bourbon and Traffic next Friday at the FNCC Terrace. The band started off with guitarist Victor Rauwerda and saxophonist Renier Viviers more than ten years ago before they were joined by bassist, Robert Scott, in 2012. The trio, ‘RVR’, as they call themselves then, performed a number of concerts in Windhoek, including Namibia’s biggest annual rock festival, Namrock in 2012. When they were joined by percussionist Marc Wolgast mid 2013, the group changed their name to Bourbon and Traffic. The drummer Tony Muirhead, member of the well known South African jazz band, Beat Route, from Durban, join the band to round off the rhythm section.

Bourbon and Traffic were invited to perform on the Acoustic Friday stage after their well received performance at Namrock 2013. Local trio “3Sum”, consisting of Christian Poloni (guitar amp rhythm), Senga Brockerhoff and Vanessa Noterman (both vocalist), will open the stage for Bourbon and Traffic. The 3Sum introduced themselves to Namibian audiences on World Music Day 2013 in Windhoek, and have since become known for their creative interpretation of old school rock. Tickets are N$30 and N$50 at the door, and the show starts at 20h00.
