Oktoberfest Bands

Arno Fourie
Arno Fourie is a talented guitarist and vocalist. He sings a wide range of songs (new and old, upbeat and some ballades) that offers entertainment to both young and old. He thoroughly enjoys audience involvement and eagerly encourages people to “sing along”! Music is for everyone.

Monkey Queen
MonkeyQueen is a Rock/Dirty Blues and Nu Blues band based in Nelspruit. This dynamic duo consists of Stefan Lombard on guitar and vocals and drummer Caryn-Leigh Lombard. Some of their favourite cover songs are: Beatles – Get Back, Bill Withers – Ain’t no sunshine, James Brown – This is a man’s world, White Stripes – 7 Nation Army, Black Keys – Little Black Submarines and Robert Johnson – Walking Blues.

Hanger Rush
The Hangar Rash is a four-member local ‘pilot’ band. “We are all pilots and have worked together at some point – mainly doing aerial firefighting. But apart from flying, we also share a love of making music, and hence, the start of The Hanger Rash.” They play some blues and popular covers from the 80’s and 90’s.
