If there's on reason to visit Prince Albert during the school holidays, it's to experience six world-class live shows at The Showroom Theatre.
After 19 years of fronting South African Rock/Pop band The Parlotones, Kahn Morbee
is performing as K A H N on 23 June, with singer, songwriter and musician Michael Lowman
as the Opening Act.
Kahn’s artistic and musical contributions on all of The Parlotones studio albums have received critical acclaim across the globe and his solo project is set to follow the same path. Lowman isn’t your regular, schooled and trained musician. His story is different. Something penned straight out of the Hollywood-Underdog playbook. At the age of 17 Michael picked up a guitar for the first time. Songwriting came naturally for this John Mayer inspired guitarist and he wowed the music scene in Los Angeles, before returning home to conquer the hearts of music lovers in South Africa.

, (Liverpool) and pianist Rene Piet
(Amsterdam) are back with their own unique brand of easy listening/ smooth jazz on Wednesday, 27 June. Last year Andrew collaborated with Rene at his recording studio in George and the result is their new album Easy Street
