MUSICIAN Nathan Smith will be keeping East London audiences entertained this month at his show, Guitar Legends, that will take place at the Guild Theatre on Saturday October 27.
“The event is to pay tribute to these incredible artists I used to play while still a child, by paying attention to detail to these incredible artists of original performance and style,” Smith said.
Smith has collaborated with artists like Ronan Keating, Richard Clayderman, Riana Nel, Laurika Rauch, Steve Hofmeyer, Juanita Du Plessis, Lira and more.
“I have my own music and have collaborated with works around South Africa and abroad. My highlights include playing at the Soccer World Cup events in 2010 and with Joseph Clark as well as “The Music of Queen”, which skyrocketed into tours countrywide and in Europe which included a sold-out stadium show for 35,000 in Holland in 2012,” he said.
Nathan also counts his highlights as working on TV shows like The Voice, Idols, Dancing with the Stars, Strictly Come Dancing, Dis Hoe Dit Is Met Steve and Toks en Tjops. He is now a member of Die Musiekfabriek on Noot Vir Noot.
He added those attending the show can expect a wide variety of musical styles.
“From nostalgic classics like “Sultans of Swing” by Dire Straits and “Parisienne Walkways” by Gary Moore, to Jimi Hendrix’s’ “Voodoo Child” and John Mayer’s “Stop This Train”, and a super slick acoustic set of songs like “Layla” and “Romeo and Juliet” to name a few,” said Smith.
