His style of singing creates the perfect atmosphere for any occasion, be it pre-drinks, during dinner or to get people dancing.
Ike was a true professional who not just pleased the crowd with his tunes but also livened up the party with his charming personality. Highly recommended. – Woon Peng Ziady
These guys are DJ’s and musicians on steroids. They play a whole load of instruments, from funky acoustic setups to electrifying fusion acts along with their DJ sets . Werner Denner (owner of man with music) says: “When a couple book us, I want to blow them away…give everything I have to give. I want to make every minute, from when the first guests arrive, till the last song of the evening, exciting and fun. When you bring that kind of energy to the party, people light up, take note and truly enjoy themselves.”
The following is a possible scenario of what to expect when you hire the duo option from Man with Music. Note that they tailor make the experience according to taste. The boys start with a gentle piano and percussion set at the ceremony. A violin or cello player is available on request. Expect well known songs played in a beautiful instrumental way. Then they move to modern lounge vibes with saxophones and flutes during pre drinks. This will get everyone swaying. Think cocktails over a cafe del mar/ buddha bar set. Through dinner they perform the coolest guitar music. It’s a mix of show numbers and acoustic Gypsy like songs – very festive with that “wow” factor. Guests will clap along and most probably start dancing. Click here to see more.
Their brilliant and artistic services – guitar and vocals were extremely different and were equally remarkable in their own right. I would like to commend Shake and Bake Entertainment on the way business was conducted prior to the event as well as the as the actual performance at the event. The talent provided contributed to the atmosphere and success of the event – Shake and Bake Entertainment has my highest recommendation. Andrea Pharaoh – Cape Union Mart

Martinus van Tee has drawn thousands of guests at hundreds of events throughout South Africa, and many top musicians, comedians and other celebs have been at the mercy of his pen at various launch parties, corporate functions and television appearances. His super fast caricatures are drawn in three minutes, providing laughs and entertainment, as well as a personalised keepsake of each event. When not drawing caricatures, Martinus illustrates children’s books and irritates his friends with his David Attenborough impressions.
Thank-you so much for attending our wedding. You were amazing, and the guests were in stitches with the caricatures you masterfully created, which, I might add, look exactly like each and every one of them! You brought a real fun element to the ceremony and we will always cherish that. Thank you again for being absolutely amazing. – Craig & Kerry

We are lucky to have an endless amount of incredibly talented musicians in and around Cape Town, from every genre and discipline. We recommend booking an experienced wedding band with musicians that know the do’s and don’ts with decorum and dress code when it comes to weddings. If possible, go see them perform ahead of time to make sure they are able to handle some variety.
You may prefer to have a live jazz band playing in the background during pre-drinks and dinner followed by a DJ. Or let a lively band take over after dinner when you open the dance floor and take you through to the early hours of the morning.
A professional wedding band can make your wedding day unforgettable. “That was the best wedding I have ever had the pleasure of attending” is what you want to hear from every guest. A professional can read a crowd and adjust according to your guests with a large variety of genres from all ages, for all ages. At the same time keep your guests from growing bored and providing unexpected and special moments.
There are many great entertainers around Cape Town – which is undeniably the artistic hub of South Africa. No matter how acquired your taste as a couple, there is something for you and you will find world-class musicians right here in the Western Cape!
