GIG OF THE WEEK

Carlo Mombelli

Bassline (Wednesday)

 

The reason why most of us sing along at concerts is because we wish we were also on stage with the live acts. We do, after all, practise in the shower and while driving so our voices are on point. Or so we think.

Then there are those of us who play an instrument or two in the closet and once in a while at a party when someone brings it up, we don't waste a second to blow that sax horn or strum Three Blind Mice on that out-of-tune guitar.

If any of the aforementioned relates to you, Carlo Mombelli's show is where you need to be on Wednesday. Mombelli is a guitarist who has been around long enough to teach you a thing or two while he plays with his trio.

Mombelli awards you the opportunity to come on stage, with an instrument of your choice, and play along with him. Essentially this is to make you feel at home with your skills and hopefully learn some more.

The show is aptly titled The Lab Of Learning and so there will be no one laughing at your pathetic efforts. Remember, it takes 10 000 hours to master any skill, but if you let Mombelli's lab cook you, it might take less time as your confidence is built from the onlooking live crowd.

If you are interested then bring your instrument and register at the door. R10 gets you in and the show starts at 8pm.

Tel: 011 838 9145/6. – Munya Vomo
