JIMMY NEVIS - born and raised in Athlone, Cape Town.
"Nobody knew I could sing, even though I’d missed school for a week to take part in the South African champs...My first career choice was architecture. I could draw very well and it seemed like that was what I was going to do. However later I decided I wanted to study music but I didn’t get into the course that I wanted to at UCT so then I went into journalism and did a bachelor degree in Social Sciences there. In my second year at Varsity I realised that if I didn’t do something with music I was never really going to be fulfilled. That’s when I drove around with my demo of Elephant Shoes and punted it to all the radio stations and things just took off from there”.
THE ROCKETS - multiple SAMA nominees, and one of the most successful pop groups to ever come out of South Africa.
They have just celebrated their 50th anniversary with a sell-out show at the 5000 seater, Grand West Arena in Cape Town.
Their music has featured prominently on most of the Radio Station charts in Southern Africa and many have held the no.1 spot. They are more than just a group; they’re a musical institution!
The countdown starts at 3pm – don’t be late – you wouldn’t want to miss these guys – with their infectious energy, fun performances, not to mention their amazing music.
Bring the family (including your furry friends on a Lead), pack a picnic and come and enjoy some great music in the park! #CITP2018
