Choko is at West End Jazz Festival

The West End Jazz Festival will exit 2018 with a bang sporting a line-up of top acts. Club West End in Rylands is staging the showcase on Sunday, 30 December.

Some of Cape Town’s best musicians, plus Choko from Trinidad and Tobago, will ensure this will be an evening to remember.

Caribbean rhythms

Choko is known for his Caribbean rhythms and energetic live performances. He’ll be officially introduced to Cape Town music lovers on the night. Then there’s vocalist Vuvu Khumalo; classy fusion band Top Dog SA featuring accomplished jazzman Richard Ceaser and saxman Donveno Prins; as well as new young band SignatureSA.

Fabulous Uncle Cal, the Kung Fu Deejay with the trademark Afro, will be spinning classic old school and current dance tunes in-between sets.
