947Unplugged with Dan Patlansky at The Venue Melrose Arch

94.7 Unplugged

94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concerts brings you 947unplugged with Dan Patlansky at The Venue Melrose Arch.

The 947Unplugged sessions showcase the raw talent of South African artists in a rare and intimate setting, where an audience can enjoy great food and drinks while sharing moments that are not usually experienced in any other shows.

On the 21st April Dan Patlanksy will perform live and launch his new acoustic album ‘Wooden Thoughts’ at the Venue Melrose Arch. Dan has been described as a “conglomerate of charisma, charm and musical genius”, and will be joined by The Daniel Baron Band who will be the supporting act on the night.

Wooden Thoughts follows 20 Stones, released to critical acclaim last year, and is rooted in the blues with influences of country, bluegrass, world music and traditional Indian melodies.

It’s an album that Patlansky has aspired to do for a long time: “I’ve always wanted to do an acoustic album but finally decided to do it following my successful unplugged tour last year. I realised there was a demand for it. As a musician, it allows you to play something different and it is less flashy. It also lends itself to a wide range of genres that allowed me to stretch myself,” he explains.

On Wooden Thoughts Patlansky sings and plays acoustic guitar, slide guitar , Dobro and the mandolin. He is joined by Clint Falconer on bass and Andy Maritz on Cajon. Wendy Oldfield does backing vocals on the track Miss Oowee as well as on The Weight.

Join Dan Patlansky for 947Unplugged on the 21st April at The Venue Melrose Arch. Doors open at 7pm, and show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets available at Computicket
