Celebrate a unique reggae revolution at uShaka Marine World’s restaurant, Wahooz on the Promenade on Saturday, April 6th from 10am – 8pm. Although reggae originated in Jamaica in the late 1960s, it also has its musical roots in New Orleans R&B and beyond. It relies on skittering guitar and syncopated rhythms and is probably most associated with Rasta legend Bob Marley and pop band UB40. However, it’s laid back vibe has been interpreted and reinterpreted over the decades. That makes it the very best musical genre to relax to on a hot summer day on the Golden Mile with an ice cold beverage or a cocktail in hand. The local muso’s who have made reggae their own and who’ll be jamming at the 2019 Rasta Rave include; Tuff Masters Family Band, The Meditators Reggae Band, Holy Fire Band, R@w, Luwe da Lion, Trinity, Roots of Kush, HottWaxx Family Selektors and more. Catch The Meditators – regulars at this popular uShaka Marine World promenade venue – is a six piece reggae band based in Durban. Founded by band leader and lead guitarist and vocalist, Shante Bekwa in 1991, the group also includes Dan Msomi on rhythm guitar and vocals, Bunny Nathi Mkhize on drums, Sfiso Mpanza on keyboard and backing vocals, Barret Hlela on bass guitar and Alberto Chemane on percussion. Roots of Kush is a Durban based contemporary reggae band featuring lead female bassist and lead vocalist Mpume while the unique Luwe da Lion is also a home-grown reggae talent. Trinity – aka Sebelo Clarence Langa - who hails from Hammarsdale, was fed a staple diet of reggae music by his father. This contributed to his distinctive blend of roots reggae with a touch of hip hop and dancehall. There are a limited number of tickets available at just R60 per person and can be bought at computicket. So book now and celebrate Wahooz Rasta style.

A diverse group of media were introduced to the new bold, robust whiskey-forward blend while experiencing the Spirit of the South through the sights, sounds and food delicacies of this exciting city. Southern Comfort Black perfectly maintains the iconic flavours of Southern Comfort Original, but includes subtle spice and fruity accents, placing it in a league of its own. In 1874, founder and legendary southerner M.W. Heron, created the first batch of his genuine smooth-drinking whiskey, blended with his very own fruits and spices.

Where there’s a party on every street, a story behind every door, and a mischievous smile inviting you to be part of it all. “While our latest offering carries on the legacy of M.W. Heron, it also celebrates Sazerac master spirits blender Drew Mayville, who is responsible for this bolder profile,” says Southern Comfort Brand Manager, Grant de Jager. “Fittingly, the black label, truly takes the original Southern Comfort experience up a notch – for those of you who like their extra-smooth whiskey, extra bold!” he adds. Best served with a variety of mixers, soda water or simply on the rocks, Southern Comfort Black is dark, mysterious and mostly – sophisticated. Available at all major retail stores, nationwide.
