Facebook Event

Casper Ace & The Wild Cards entertain with an eclectic selection of hit songs, some original and currently being played on national radio, and some spanning back decades to the early days of Rock 'n' Roll. Formed in early 2017, they’ve already entertained audiences from the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town to the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, Oudtshoorn with performances that range from intimate to very lively. Over and above well-known songs, the band also performs original material from Casper Ace’s debut album ‘Saam’, described by Afrikaans music legend, Koos Kombuis, as ‘surprisingly new’.

“Casper Ace kry dit reg om ernstige vrae te vra en maatskaplike en omgewingskwessies aan te pak op maat van polsende musiek wat jou laat lus kry om jou hare los te skud en jou lyf aan die ritme oor te gee.” 

- Mariana Malan (Die Burger, 2 Junie 2017)
