The Cape Town Acoustic-folk band Hatchetman will be performing at The Showroom Theatre on Saturday, 3 November at 8pm in collaboration with the Leesfees 2018. Tickets cost R80pp. Book seats here
The trio combine their prodigious musical and vocal talents to form Hatchetman, a band that, as the name suggests, cuts straight to the heart with songs on life, love, and most things in between. Their soaring harmonies and searing dynamism in the musical accompaniment has brought many a person to tears. The honesty, and a willingness to explore the darker and more tender sides of the human condition, sets the band apart from many of its contemporaries.
Lyrical topics range from heartbreak to a rumination of the multifaceted nature of Cape Town, while musically, the band meets somewhere between folk, rock, funk and acoustically inclined sounds, all delicately underpinned by the powerful, yet gentle blend of three voices. Hatchetman is set for big things, great things, don’t miss out!
The band consist of :
Jono Tait, the son of Richard and Retha Tait, owners of the Alma Café, one of Cape Town’s premier live music venues. Jono is a spirited character, and main songwriter for the band and is very candid in his lyrics as well as his onstage interaction with the crowd. Jono sings and plays acoustic guitar for Hatchetman.
Brothers Nick and Matt Catto complete the original trio of Hatchetman. They bring an incredible blend of harmony and musical talent. This talent was inevitable considering the strong musical family background of the Blundells. Nick plays bass guitar and sings, while Matt plays the cajon and sings.
