6 June 2018

15 June 2018 at the Barnyard.


The High End Blues Band was put together by Lance Allam, consisting of a group of seasoned musicians playing Blues/ Roots & Americana music.

The band has recently released their debut album entitled “Live at Milestone.”

The band consists of Beshara Ornellas (vocals), James Kibby (guitar and vocals), Mark Buchanan (guitars), Ian Buchanan (Bass guitar), Mark McDonald (Drums) and Lance Allam (fiddle. Mandolin, guitar and vocals).

Beshara , is the daughter of Dave Ornellas  (of the 1970’s band Hawk) and is a well known singer in CapeTown ,while  James Kibby, is a guitar teacher at the Jazz Workshop and ex-guitarist for the Basil “Manenberg” Coetzee, as well as Josh Hawks (now with Freshly Ground).

Mark Buchanan is considered as one of the finest Blues guitarist in this country and is ex-lead guitarist for Just Jinger, Jonny Fourie’s Jazz Band, Max Normal, Snare and Nelly Furtado. Mark McDonald is the drummer for the band, and has been playing with Mark Buchanan for the last 20 years.

Finally, Lance, played fiddle and mandolin for Blacksmith and performed with Blue Cadillac, before forming the High End Blues Band.

This is a tight outfit of experienced musicians, who are going to knock your socks off and leave you all utterly Gob-Smacked. The Village Eco-preschool is indeed privileged to have the High End Blues Band perform at their 2018 Music Fundraiser. This Feature Evening must under no circumstances be missed!

Be sure to get there early, so that you can secure a reasonable seat in the House. This is going to be a Corker!
