UHURU Vibes, a Lusaka-based live band, treated regular patrons to a rare treat at The Frog in Lusaka last Saturday when it churned out a combination of soul, rock, reggae and Kalindula tunes.
This is what The Frog used to be; a place where patrons would enjoy some live music from the likes of the B-Sharp before Salsa took over the Saturdays.
The band’s leader Peter Tshuma, popularly known as Peter Bob, put up a scintillating show with an unrivalled stage presence.
The two other band singers Wynan and Esther were also a marvel to watch as they entertained the audience to a repertoire of difference genres of music.
Uhuru Vibes’ instrumentalists who include Josephat Mazumba on bass, Clement Chitundu on drums, Davy Kakoma on lead and Davy Mudenda on rhythm, are veteran musicians who have been on the Zambian music scene for decades.
The band, which is bracing itself for shows every Friday at Mickis Pub and Grill in Kabulonga, will also be a permanent feature at The Frog every Saturday.
Meanwhile, Danny Kaya was again in full swing at the Green Ethiopian Restaurant in Lusaka where his Mo Fire Band entertained fans.
Danny was performing at the Green Ethiopian Restaurant for the second consecutive week, and patrons cannot be disappointed with what they have been treated to so far.
Due to release his ninth studio album The Graduate, which has songs like So Sexy, Mary Mafiga and Umoyo Wanga, Danny played a myriad of songs from his previous albums, Mvelani, Ama Lavin’gi, Yakumbuyo, Kaya, Champion, 10 Years, Live and Voice of the Voiceless (VoV).
But with all the albums boasting a plethora of hits, song selection is good headache for Danny as fans have their own favourite songs. But whichever song he picks on, Danny, who was backed by Titus and Naso, seemed to go well with the fans.
Anyway, that is always the case with Danny or the Professors, as he likes to call himself.
