The benefit of being a musician, is that you gain priceless life experience while on the job. One must also be prepared to suffer for art; while standing precariously in the pouring rain at 8 on a Saturday morning. I’m not sure what’s worse, the rain – or the getting up early. The shots you’re seeing were taken by my favourite local photographer – Nicola Suttle. She is making quite a name for herself in Cape Town, and I’m proud to be displaying her work right here on my blog. The band being photographed is CueCumber Jazz, an afro-pop jazz band I’ve been playing bass for recently. The shots were all taken at Kirstenbosch Gardens.
