Kenny G - One Night Only - Johannesburg - 20.11.2014 -
Tonight Rite Studios is once again teaming up with Dale Kopping, the founder of DK Expressions! It’s going to be an extraordinary evening here at The Coca-Cola Dome. We are here to see the legendary Kenny G, 25th highest selling artist of all time. Three decades, 75 million records and over 20 albums later, the Grammy award-winning saxophonist Kenny G has returned to Johannesburg, to once again demonstrate that he is the premiere artist in modern jazz. Brought to you by Canoc Productions, together with Mzanzi Magic Music, fans can expect to hear some of the classics, with world-class production.
From the team that brought us Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Chris Brown & Maxwell, we are expecting the One Night Only concert to dazzle the many local Kenny G fans & aficionados of contemporary jazz. “We are exceptionally pleased to bring this phenomenally successful, Grammy award-winning artist, to perform in South Africa,” says Pleasure Letsoalo, Managing Director and Founder of Canoc Productions.
He begins the night by entering the arena through the audience. Which sends everybody into a frenzy to grab their phones, trying to capture this amazing moment. He effortlessly plays his sax, walking through the crowds of adoring fans, with a lung-capacity like no one we have ever seen. Holding a note for longer than most Olympic athletes can hold their breath, Kenny casually walks up onto the stage, the crowd absolutely eating it up.
What can we say about this exceptional performance? Other than that we’ve been completely and utterly blown away. What a spectacular show, everything from Kenny G’s entrance to his energy on stage was phenomenal. What a truly incredible evening. Whether you’re a Kenny G fan, a Jazz enthusiast or just someone that enjoys music in general and you weren’t here, then you definitely missed out. Let’s hope that the Team from Canoc will be able to secure a return show for next year with Mr Kenny G and his exceptional band.
