More about Sit The Folk Down
Sit the Folk Down’s primary mission was to facilitate shows in unique venues, creating an experience where people leave feeling they’ve witnessed something more than just another music show at your local pub. Just over a year down the line and STFD has successfully managed to put on some memorable shows with some of the best local talents South Africa has to offer as well as some great international artists that have graced our shores. (Stelth Ulvang of the Lumineers, Brett Newski, John Will Sail).
More About Deon Bakkes and the Stolen Horses
A German idiom for romance, and the traditional gypsy lifestyle which relied upon the service of magnificent steeds – sometimes indeed stolen. Deon Bakkes and the Stolen Horses bring a new light to Gypsy Jazz that incorporates the classic blend of European gypsy melody and 1930’s swing, with a modern attitude rooted in Hard Bop Jazz, Punk and Rock ‘n Roll.
The Stolen Horses began in early 2016 when Deon Bakkes brought his love of Django Reinhardt-style Gypsy Jazz and improvisational music into his own personal musical conception. The horses recorded their debut album in late 2016 entitled “Neither Here nor There” featuring a mix of original songs such as “Stealing Horses” and “The Reaper’s Got Kids To Feed Too’ as well as a number of re-invigorated and fired up jazz standards such as “It Don’t Mean A Thing” and “Minor Swing”.
The band has played numerous live shows around Pretoria and Johannesburg with notable appearances at the Mexican Tequila Festivals in 2016 and 2018, OppiKoppi 2017, Park Acoustics 2017 and 2018, Mieliepop 2018 and STRAB 2018 (Mozambique). The horses have released their latest EP in May 2018 entitled ‘Thrice A Pair’.
