The V&A Waterfront Summer Concerts, presented by the new smart car, are here to liven up the summer! Taking place at the V&A Amphitheatre on select weekend afternoons, these much-loved musical performances offer acoustic concerts by both up-and-coming and well-known names against views of Table Mountain and the city – making this the perfect way to spend a summer’s evening.

 

Kicking off the performances on Sunday, 29 April, is ZionThree3, a trio of South African vocalists best-known for pop and R&B music, who will perform at the V&A Amphitheatre at 3.30pm. The trio, Tashwin Manuel, Bradley van der Zandt and Dillon Powell, are childhood friends and all grew up in musical and spiritual homes, beginning their singing careers in the church. Combining this background with a love of pop and R&B music, their performance is sure to create an earworm or two.

 

South African star Jimmy Nevis, follows ZionThree3 with a performance at 6pm. At just 23 years old and already signed to labels Rude World Records and David Gresham Records, Jimmy describes himself as an alternative pop singer-songwriter and music producer who is “trying to get South Africa back into pop music”.

 

With signature musical qualities such as gospel undertones, quirky lyrics, soulful vocals and catchy melodies, Jimmy has worked with some of South Africa’s top musical acts, including Mi Casa, Pascal & Pearce, and Kwesta. His debut album (Subliminal) and sophomore EP (The Masses) have been well-received commercially, and one of his latest singles, ‘All About It’ reached #1 on the 5fm Pop Charts.
