Come and join us for a rock-filled night with Light & Shade
A good performance, whether it is a speech or an orchestra ensemble, never lacks in light and shade.
Light & Shade are an acoustic blues duo act from Cape Town, consisting of Jeandré Swanepoel, front man of grunge rock group De Wallen, and Luke Smith on keyboard.
Swanepoel exchanged the distorted electric guitar for his trusty acoustic during his recent solo venture, but felt compelled to team up with the gifted Smith after hearing him perform the blues on his Korg keyboard at 03:00am in Aandklas, Stellenbosch.
Smith has a background in classical music, but knew his abilities on the ebony and ivory would extend far beyond this genre. He started playing the blues at the age of 17 and today he hypnotises audiences with his guitar-quality riffs on the keys.
Their act Light & Shade was born in early 2017 and since then they have landed residencies and prime-time gigs in and around Cape Town. In the meanwhile, they’re working on new songs and assembling promotional material to keep up with their already-successful shows.
