It was a first for Mitchells Plain as a giant marquee was erected to host nearly 1500 people.
More than 18 acts took to the stage to perform the numbers that made them famous.
Old school artists like Vernon Castle, Brian Bohorn, Stan the Jazz Man, the N2 jazzband, Richard Caesar, Richard Fortune, the Ikey Gamba band played alongside “newbies” like Candice Thornton, SAMA nominee Jarrad Ricketts, Mo Funk and Leoni Le Roux, Ronald RJ Jones, and the Sade Von S Band.
The jol started at 10am the morning and ended at 11pm.
The legendary Sammy Webber and his band had mense jolling and he ended off with a duet with his wife Lesley-Rae.
When Leoni Le Roux and her band Mo Funk took stage, there was no turning back, and they had the crowd sweating.
Lee-Ann Crouse and her friends arrived in the afternoon, dressed to impress for the jol.
“We are having such a ball, I can’t leave because it’s all my favourite artists appearing and the party just continues,” she said.
Premium Bar owners William and Nathalie Goliath say they hope to make this an annual event on Freedom Day.
“For years on end, Mitchells Plain has been following and supporting various artists and musicians, this time it was an opportunity to showcase these legendary artists to the people of Mitchells Plain,” said Nathalie.
The event was a partnership between Premium Sports Bar and Blue Angel Events’ Ashwin de Klerk.
