Jazz lovers once again gathered at West End in Rylands for the Scottish Leader Battle of the Bands on Saturday.
Up for grabs is R40 000 in cash and a chance to perform at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival community concert - which has since been postponed due to coronavirus concerns - if they impress judges Joe Schaffers, Vicky Sampson and music mentor, Darryl Andrews.
First on stage was The Carla Stokes Project who performed their original song, Modern Love.
Mo-Funk impressed the crowd with their scat, but it was the Celeste Williams Ensemble who won the night with dance floor fillers which included Mafikizolo’s Ndihamba Nawe.
In between performances, the crowd was entertained by MC Uncle Cal, who was dressed like he walked out of an Austin Powers fliek but didn’t follow the famous Mike Myer’s advice “oh, behave” when he told mense that DJ Keith only drinks “Viagra light”.
Meanwhile, Latin and ballroom dancers, as well as salsa and jazz professionals, showed off their kwaai steps.
One ou even leaped off the staircase while another drew chuckles as he did a family-friendly striptease.
Unfortunately, not even this competition is spared by fears of the coronavirus.
The finals were set to take place at Hanover Street in GrandWest this coming Saturday, but due to concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic, the event has been postponed indefinitely.
Do keep an eye on the Daily Voice for further details.
In the meantime, keep those dancing shoes shining and brush up on your moves - we’ll see you on the dance floor soon.
