At the forefront of South African pop punks, a band who calls themselves ‘Made For Broadway’ have staked their claim. And we’re quite happy to let them take that honour and wear the crowns. I mean, their name screams for attention and they really know how to get a crowd going.
They’ll be jamming full frontal this weekend – 8th of October at the Wunderbar German Club in Edenvale along with fellow rockers Slippery When Wet and The Slashdogs in turn alongside bands and musos worldwide throughout the month of October who is all taking a stand against the ongoing violence and oppression happening to West Papuan civilians.
The band is made up of Brogan Thompson, Justin James, Sean Braam and Rob Storm and they found musical influence through bands such as New Found Glory, Blink 182 and The Story So Far to name but a few.
They’ve previously peaked at number 2 and number 1 on the ReverbNation Local Rock Chart as well as toured the U.S. of A with a self-promoting tour of their music. This earned them many more adoring fans as well as entry into playing at some of the most recognised venues in California – the Viper Room for one.
These guys have shown us in a very short time, what living the dream looks and feels like and if their other shows are anything to go by then this coming Saturday is going to be Awesome with a capital Aweh!
The venue opens at 2pm and tickets are available at the door. R50 gets you in before 6pm, otherwise R80 from 18:01 onwards.
