Bourbon and Traffic Perform at FNCC’s Acoustic Friday Concert

The Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre’s (FNCC) Acoustic Friday concert, scheduled to take place on Friday, 4 April, goes instrumental with Bourbon amp 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 band started off with guitarist Victor Rauwerda and saxophonist Renier Viviers more than a decade ago before they were joined by bassist Robert Scott in 2012. The trio called itself ‘RVR’ and performed a number of gigs in Windhoek, including Namrock 2012. When they were joined by percussionist Marc Wolgast in mid 2013, they changed their name to Bourbon amp Traffic. Recently, talented drummer Tony Muirhead, member of the well known South African jazz band Beat Route, arrived from Durban to round off the rhythm section.

Local trio 3Sum, consisting of Christian Poloni (guitar and rhythm), Senga Brockerhoff and Vanessa Noterman (both vocals), will act as curtain raiser for Bourbon amp Traffic. 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.

The concert takes place on the FNCC Terrace from 20h00. Tickets are N$30 in aance and N$50 at the door. For more information, contact Irmi Roder on 061 387 337.
