Don’t Miss: The last Party People at ROKA this week…

Sadly the fabulous indoor/outdoor venue ROKA is closing down as apparently their lease will not be renewed… So many of us have kicked back at some of our best Jozi nights out at ROKA, lapped up some superb live performances and induced some of the worst cocktail hangovers… Anyone that attended a Party People will have fond memories of one of Jozi’s best party nights… this Thursday is the last time Party People will take place at ROKA and we urge all the Party People to be there! Party People congrats and we wish you an even better next venue. Change is often a good thing.  On a brighter note, Cape Town Party People will feature the divine ZUBZ, do NOT miss this Cape Town… see below. Dj Kenzhero Presents Party People 3rd Anniversary Feat: Kwani Experience and Special guests Johannesburg 25th July 2009 This month, the month of July 09 is both bitter and sweet. The sweet part is that this month we, Party People; Dj Kenzhero and the people of the Party People celebrate 3 whole years of throwing and enjoying possibly the greatest Hip-Hop event to ever hit Jo’Burg City, and I say this with confidence. The bitter part is that Party People and Dj Kenzhero see the last Party People to take place at Roka, I know it’s hard to swallow. But, Dj Kenzhero could not let this affect the musical act Party People would feature this month. It took Kenzhero a while to finally decide on who will perform the last live performance at Roka and still do our 3rd anniversary justice, and along came the thought of Kwani Experience. But why Kwani Experience? Kenzhero the hero thought whom better to translate the history of Party People through music than Kwani Experience? They’ll be doing a set “with the cliché twist”, says Kwani’s spokesperson Po Box, “There’ll be new songs, favorite joints; fused with surprises and surprise acts. We don’t wanna reveal much, but expect some of your favorite acts who have performed at Party People in the last three years.” “We might also do a collaboration with Kenny, we haven’t done it since 2005 so it would be nice…just come to the show words sometimes can’t explain music”, Po concluded. And well with all that said come and join us for the last dance at Roka Lounge, situated on 44 Stanley Ave Milpark. Tickets for this one will be sold at the door for R100. Doors will open at 9:00pm. See you there! For More Info see: www.myspace.com/partypeoplesa or www.myspace.com/kwaniexp Cape-Town Feat Zubz the last letter Zula Bar, Cape-Town 24th July 2009 Last...

Everybody’s ♡ing BLK JKS

Everybody’s ♡ing BLK JKS

I remember the first time I saw Blk Jks was the night our *shy* little band Pesheya shared the stage with them at ROKA in Milpark early 07, we were both opening acts for the always AWESOME Uju… That night I thought *damn* these guys are crazy, their eclectic blend of rock ‘n roll madness was enough to confuse any neatly playlisted South African. Now, proudly listening to their set at SXSW, I can confirm, they are totally loopy… crazy … and loving it! The best part is, hungry for something fresh and tasty, the rest of the music world seems fascinated by these boys mashing up styles all the way from Johannesburg and are lapping them up in big dollops. Join them on their ride on and upwards – read all about Blk Jxs in this month’s Vanity Fair and listen to their mad beats at SXSW (thanks Quicy for the link). Could this be the debut of SA music on the international stage – AT LAST? REPRESENT! PS: SO UJU when is the rest of the music world finally going to get to listen to you??? We still have our money on you. *kisses from...

Party People is back – Get Amongst in 2008!

The crew at Represent are PROUD to be associated with consistently creative, musical, artistic and just plain crazy events like Party People who we believe have got the formula right. If you didn’t get to Party People in 2007, open your minds, put it in your diary and book a table for dinner and a blast at ROKA for Party People in 08. It’s a fantastic night out and each edition conjures up a memorable and standout performance representing the best of urban entertainment. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Welcome everybody, the Party People staff would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support from last year. Your support truly make the Party People event and brand grow…thus this year the focus is to go nationwide. The Cape Town leg has already kicked of on the 3rd Jan 2008 at Zula on Long Street and was a success and calls for more. Pretoria will see the 1st Party People event on the 5th March 2008 at Tings n’ Times, we’ll keep you informed on that one…oh! There’s also talks of Mozambique in Easter but will get to that one…this months Jhb’s feature is Bianca Williams DJ Kenzhero presents Party People Date: 26 Feb 2008 Venue: Roka Door: R50 Time: 8pm Bianca Williams is a young woman who has been in the hip hop/poetry scene for 8 years. She is an extraordinary poet, rapper and singer. Describing her art as her “inner guide to personal freedom”, she started writing when she was 12 years old – attending poetry and hip hop shows religiously. Having become an avid reader, she fell in love with words and discovered their power to shape all of existence. She believes that “the word is the strongest medium because not only does it speak to the mind, it also speaks to the soul.” She started performing as an emcee before she did as a poet, at cyphers in Ghandi Square and at Le Club. She believes that hip hop served as an unlimited resourced in her life, constantly providing her with challenges and the strength to deal with her own reality. She then started rapping in different venues and became one of the first female emcees that the Jozi hip hop community paid attention to, often being the only female alongside male emcees. She is currently working on her own album which is due for release in June 2008 and is featured on other hip hop projects such as, the Abomrapper II and the Classix compliation albums, also due for release in 2008. Some of Bianca’s most memorable performances: • Bianca performed...
