For over twenty years GEORGE WORTHMORE has been a star in the New York City music scene. Known for his quick wit and musical dexterity, George has shared the stage with many elite blues, folk and rock artists such as; Kinky Friedman, Bo Diddley, Ben E. King, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Lou Christy, and The Platters. George has also been “the other guy” with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassidy in Hot Tuna. A consummate entertainer when performing with his own band, The Divebombers, he was joined on stage by such stars as Billy Idol and Paul Schaffer, (band leader on the Letterman show) and Chris Spedding.

After three tours to SA, George bought the night club where he performed —The Blues Room, and turned it into the most prestigious live music venue in that county. 1n 2007, after an award winning 10-year run, George sold the Blues Room and has returned to the US and to his first love, performing. His current show is a tour de force of solo acoustic guitar, from Ragtime to Blues, with the occasional Bach thrown in to keep things interesting! More than the usual singer/guitarist, a George Worthmore show is interlaced with humorous comments and amusing anecdotes about the songs, his life and his music.

After more than 15 years playing in one of South Africa’s most loved and successful rock bands, The Parlotones’ Glen Hodgson takes front of stage in a new project – Lost&Found. After touring Johannesburg as a Solo act, Glen felt limited and wanted to push the boundaries of what he was creating. Enter drummer Jason Oosthuizen – a South African session drummer/musician described as one of the most explosive live drummers South Africa has ever seen. Jason also currently drums for The Black Cat Bones and has worked with Van Coke Kartel, Fokofpolisiekar & One Day Remains.
