We play pop & rock covers from the 60’s to 2012, basically anything from the Beatles to Lady Ga-Ga.
During 2008 we completed two one year residencies at the Flaming Fox, Parklands and Sangria Taverna, Bothasig, a three-month cycle at Guzzlers, Tableview and an one-year residency at Countdown Sports Café, Blaauwberg. We also played two corporate functions for Porters Auto, Culemborg during 2007, a black-tie event for Metropolitan Oddyssey (BMW Pavillion, V & A Waterfront) and performed at a number of private functions and weddings at some of the top function venues in the Western Cape. We also played the Year-End function of African Maritime Services in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
During 2010 we also completed a lengthy cycle at Pirates Grill House (Plumstead) and commenced a residency at Casa Do Mar (Tableview) that continues in 2012. We have also played a number of other engagements at other premier venues; eg. Quay (V & A Waterfront), Doodles (Blaauwberg), Seaforth Restaurant (Simon's Town), Dias Tavern (Cape Town CBD), The Italian Club (Milnerton), Verdi Pizzeria (Edgmead), Boogie Bar (Tableview) and the Dubliner @ Kennedy's. Synchronicity were selected to perform at Nederburg Wine Estate for the 2012 Paarl Around the Rock Festival. We also performed as the feature band at Slainte Sports Bar & Resaurant's 2012 St Patrick's Day Celebration.
SYNCHRONICITY were semi-finalists in the Bands4Africa 2010 New Talent Search hosted at Quay 4.
ALISON placed in the national Top 75 in 2002 during the first Idols competition. She has played semi-professionally with a number of musicians & bands in the Cape Town area since 2002; eg. with Greg Schoeman (ex The Sunshines) as a rock & alternative covers duo and with well-known show-band Faze 4 at venues including Quay 4 (Waterfront), Countdown (Blaauwberg), Tavern & Ale (Plumstead), Bart’s Pub (Strand), Zelda’s (Somerset-West), Dubliners @ O’ Kennedys (Long St, Cape Town), Gecko Lounge (Hermanus) and a 7 month-residency at the Generations Café (aka G-Spot). Also played a number of high profile corporate functions (eg. LG Electronics, Spar) and notably an one-month residency at Ratanga Junction during high-season promotion. Alison has further done a number of voice-overs for local radio stations.
RIAAN is a solo artist and former member of rock duo Under Construction, who has played at venues including the now defunct Barrels & Flags (Cape Town), Guzzlers (Milnerton), Jaws on the Boulevard (Monte Vista), Sangria Taverna (Bothasig) & Gunners Arms (Wynberg).
RIAAN is also available as a solo act for venues that suit that format.
