From the streets they came and on the stage they were made, The Busking Boys were born from a pure “busk”. They took to the stage upon a simple request when Angelo Thomas (Guitar & Vocals) was asked to come up and play a few songs at a private event where Hezron Chetty (Violin) was performing. Out of sheer respect for Hezron, Angelo felt he could not perform on Hezron’s stage, without him… Simply put, it was quite an exciting and interesting combination!
The Contemporary Classical take on Pop, Rock and Mowtown inspired songs came to life that night with no rehearsal and the success of this impromptu busking session soon led to more enquiries, more events and at their first Corporate event, The Busking Boys were introduced by popular KFM DJ, Liezel van der Westhuizen for the very first time!
The Busking Boys have over a mere 2 months, already played both Corporate and Private events, as well as a performance at the Cape Town International Festival of Beer to over 1000 guests… Not a bad start!
2017 will be an exciting year for the duo as they add to their repertoire, apply their looping skills to grow their sound and create more exciting videos of some live busking performances around their hometown, Cape Town, SA.
