8.00pm – JOHNNY ZEST & FRIENDS
Johnny Zest & Friends are a four piece band that plays covers of most of the classic songs from the past and recent decades. Their style lends itself to all types of functions in that their sounds are mostly amplified acoustic instruments allowing the band to perform at restaurants, tea gardens, weddings and party events.
The band members are Geoff Clarke on Acoustic and Electric lead guitar and vocals, Robbie Marais on drums and vocals, Barry Hosford on electric bass and backup vocals, and John Hudson on acoustic rhythm guitar and main vocals.
The members have been performing in the music industry both professionally and semi pro-fessionally for over 30 years. They cater for specific requirements and, if necessary, pull in other musicians playing the appropriate instruments for that particular function, hence the name Johnny Zest & Friends.
The band currently plays at weddings, birthday bashes, pub entertainment etc. All take their music very seriously and aim to be the best they can be at every gig. Their ex-tensive repertoire allows them to accommodate the desires of every client.
The band strives to deliver each song as close to the original as possible, while making them their own. They have a small selection of their own material too.
9.00pm – THE WICK KIDS
The Wick Kids are an alternative folk trio hailing from the ever so small town of Howick. Made up of members all attending different universities, The Wick Kids claim to fame is their seasonality, meaning they only gather in season (The University holidays), a few times a year to fuse their musical talents.
The first member of the band and Bass player, Jonathan Copeland, is a Computer Science student in Pretoria who spends all of his free time slapping bass and coding. Thomas Bull, the second addition and the main vocalist for the Wick Kids can only ever be found in 3 places; in the ocean surfing, performing with The Wick Kids, or lying on his bed. And Finally, Josh Bull, brother of Tom Bull, and guitarist and vocalist for The Wick Kids, is an obsessive compulsive Knoodler who plays frantically in the hopes he will one day improve.
With their musical influences ranging from Passenger, to Ed Sheehan, to John Mayer, The Wick Kids bring a new vibey take the on the stale title that is ‘alternative folk’. All in all, The Wick Kids provide an all round entertaining act fusing their interesting personalities with their love for music.

DIRECTIONS TO MiTH:
Take the N3 to Hilton, take the Hilton turnoff and go South into the Village (away from Hilton College). Travel 5,2km along Hilton Avenue (past two sets of traffic lights and Old Main Brewery) and keep going straight as Hilton Avenue turns into Dennis Shepstone Drive. At the 5,2km mark, Knoll Drive will be on your right – the entrance to MiTH is the *second* entrance on your left into The Knoll Historic Guest Farm. (Dennis Shepstone Drive is currently under heavy construction – so please be very cautious.)
