7pm: Howick High Band
Led by their charismatic and eccentric teacher, Mark Houston, the Howick High School Band never disappoints. Come and check out the Midlands’ young talent! The band is excited to be back at MiTH once again, to play a collection of pop and rock classics from The Foo Fighters, and Bruce Springsteen, to the White Stripes and everything in between. Who knows, there might even be some Iron Maiden…
Woodgate is a four-piece alternative indie rock band from Pietermaritzburg, started in July this year. The band consists of Josh Gilliver on drums, James Cunningham on bass guitar, Joshua Strydom on guitar, and Ryan Woodgate on guitar and vocals. The band plays original songs written by Ryan Woodgate, some of which have already been part of his solo releases, and others that the band has created together. In addition, the band plays cover songs from a range of artists and genres, including rock, indie, alternative, and pop. Influences of the band are many, including the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, Cage The Elephant and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Ryan Woodgate and Josh Gilliver have played together before as part of local rock band “Calico” who gigged throughout KZN between 2017 and 2021. Joshua Strydom and James Cunningham are also experienced musicians; Joshua being part of the MMM band and James being part of Static Cat. Woodgate will be playing their debut gig at MiTH and taking the local music scene by storm with a blend of exciting originals and well-known, foot-tapping covers.
Serrotone is an exciting collaboration project initiated by two established SA radio play artists: Pete Guthrie (Spoonfeedas) and James Robertson (Cubic Inch), and Billy Kruger. Guthrie and Robertson have both written and performed as part of Spoonfeedas, a multi-charting SA group. Robertson’s band, Cubic Inch, has also enjoyed radio popularity, and between them, they have performed alongside artists like Metallica, Muse, Ronan Keating, and Bryan Adams. Kruger has performed in Europe with MIC at Holland’s Ajax stadium, also having shared the stage with UK band Delirious. Serrotone has further performed with some of South Africa’s finest acts, sharing the stage with Prime Circle and Wonderboom in Plettenburg Bay, and then Freshly Ground at the Inverroche Summer Series in Stilbaai. They have individually and collectively released multiple singles which have achieved radio play and gained popularity at live performances. We can’t wait to have them back at MiTH.
