Publicity from the U2 Gig

FEBRUARY 2011 - PRESS RELEASE


ALMOST FAMOUS TO PERFORM at the Cape Town U2 Concert Fan Walk
 

Cape Town – Popular cover band ‘Almost Famous’ will be performing at the U2 Fan Walk on Friday 18th February.

Big Shot Productions MD Angie Nel is part of the team that are putting together a Fan Walk for the U2 Concert on February 18th, which will present an exciting journey for fans and locals alike and will include large print murals depicting the band’s illustrious 31 year history as well as iconic elements from some of their best-selling albums.

Apart from six murals set along the entire route, the majority of other elements will span St Andrews Square on Somerset Road to Ebenezer Road and will include a stage with a screen back-drop at St Andrews Square setting the scene for DJs and a VJ while rock bands, including Samson and Almost Famous, will appear from a roof-top, emulating U2’s video shot in LA of the song “Streets With No Name”.

The action will take place on a garage parking area adjacent to the Caltex garage on Somerset Road. A large stage and lighting rig will be set up in front of a huge city back drop. Almost Famous will be performing some of U2’s greatest hits including, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Pride (In the Name of Love), Beautiful day, Vertigo and many others. The band will perform 4x 45 minute sets to warm up the concert goers as they make their way to the stadium.
 

  This is an amazing opportunity for Almost Famous’ says drummer and band leader Sean Nunan, ‘we have been exposed to some high profile corporate gigs in the past including an invitation to perform in Dubai, but its gonna take a lot to top this one. The guys are excited and we are going to be playing some of U2’s biggest hits to get the crowds revved for what is going to probably be the best concert South Africa has ever seen.’


The U2 Fan Walk will run from approximately 3.30pm to 7.30pm.

Almost Famous is proudly endorsed by Paul Bothner Music.

DECEMBER 2006

South Africa's Largest Drum Kit

WE BUILT IT! WE PLAYED IT! A TRULY SOUTH AFRICAN RECORD!

December 2006, M&M Music Academy took on the challenge of building South Africa's largest drum set. The event was a combined effort between M&M Music Academy and Paul Bothner Music as they provided 50% of all equipment required for the event. The 'Monster' kit was constructed on a custom built metal frame which had to be fully functional to allow our teachers to do various drums solo's on it. Most of the kit was made up of toms, cymbals, bass drums, snare drums as well as some percussion instruments like cow bells and bongo's. Our goal was 120 pieces which we achieved, a piece was defined as either a drum, cymbal or playable object e.g. chimes.

The drum kit stood on display for 7 days in the food court at Table View's Bayside Shopping Centre. On Saturday 9th December shoppers where treated to three fabulous drumming displays during the course of the day where Sean Nunan, Mike Laurie and Matt Gervais showed off their collective drumming skills by pounding out a huge solo together on the 120 piece kit. The A huge thank you goes out to Newton from Paul Bothners as well as various teachers and students at M&M for all their help and support to make the event a huge success.
