He has been playing his unique blend of jazz-fusion on Cape Town stages ever since then, as the leader of the high-energy quartet Feedback, and in recent years with the acoustic AciDBass project featuring saxophonist Mike Rossi. The live performance at The Ear will feature new material written and recorded during the lockdown as well as selected pieces from his back-catalogue.Tickets cost R150 each through Quicket.
