More about Concerts in the Park
Pack a picnic basket and a blanket and come down for some great free shows. Summer in Cape Town is the perfect time of year to be outside. And what better way to celebrate this weather than spending time, listening to great music in one of Cape Towns most historic parks?
Best of all, these shows are family friendly. And that extends to your four-legged family members as well! So bring the kids and the dogs, pack some snacks and something to drink and enjoy one of the best shows of the year so far.
More About Jimmy Nevis
He was born and raised in Athlone, Cape Town, alongside his sister and went to Primary and High school in Pinelands. Jimmy says “at Primary school I was shy and overweight and when I went to High school, it was the same and I was very quiet. But then one day I decided to audition for the cabaret group. At Pinelands High School it’s a very prestigious group to belong to with all the school’s best singers. They used to have a five-night concert once a year and every night was always sold out.
Nobody knew I could sing, even though I’d missed school for a week to take part in the South African champs, anyway I was asked to sing my audition song at assembly and after that my life changed. I also had this girl I liked, so I took a decision to lose weight and within three months I was slim and trim and my life changed again.
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 Varsity year 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”.
