Downstairs Live Music Sessions

From time to time, and often on a Monday night, we host live music on a small stage downstairs – usually singer-songwriter soloists and duos. These work differently to theatre shows in that audience are encouraged to pay what they can to the artist with a suggested minimum of R50.

Live Music Gig (Downstairs) • Running Time: 120 mins
Cat Simoni | Alan Glass | Presented by Alan Glass Productions

After ten years playing and singing for the international crème de la crème at the Steinways of London's 5-star venues and exclusive clubs, Cat Simoni is back home and delighted to be entertaining Cape Town audiences on Sunday nights in the intimate setting of the Alexander Bar. She's joined once again by singer,  muso, voice artist and writer Alan Glass.

Note that this event takes place in the bar area downstairs. There is no set ticket price - we ask you to please make a cash contribution large or small on the night.

Cat is​ ​equally at ease​ playing and singing Andrew Lloyd Webber show-songs, Ella Fitzgerald jazz standards,​ the Diana Krall/Rod Stewart-style American Songbook,​ rock ​classic​s from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and ​T​he Eagles, number one hits from Freddie Mercury, Billy Joel, Celine Dion and Barbra​ ​ Streisand​ -​ on piano, saxophone and guitar. Cat sings in at least 8 languages.​ ​In concert or cabaret, vivacious, mercurial Cat is the full music package.
