The Parlotones Are Back
The band, which consists of Kahn Morbee (Vocals and Guitar), Neil Pauw (Drums), Paul Hodgson (Guitar) and Glenn Hodgson (Bass/Piano/Backing Vocals) will be gracing the motherland with their presence on Sunday, 10th of February 2008 at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens at 17h00.
Audiences watching The Parlotones are swept up in a whirlwind of energy and rock orchestrated by front man Kahn Morbee. Not adverse to experimentation, the band merges innovative and authentic ideas into a comprehensive sound, which lends itself to mammoth live performances, the likes of which audiences have rarely seen.
During 2006, The Parlotones garnered a number of noteworthy accolades. While on the tour in the UK, The Parlotones signed with the international artist agency Primary and also joined international PR company Landerpr who are responsible for international artist such as Leanne Rimes, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson and Christina Aguilera.
The genius of the band was recognised locally earlier in the year when their debut full-length album, Radiocontrolledrobot, won the 2006 Best Rock Album at the SAMA’s, and the band performed alongside international rock greats at the Coca Colab Massive Mix concerts. They were asked to perform again during the 2006 concert, a rare honour as no band is booked twice in a row to avoid repetition.
These are the gigs that the band have lined up for Gauteng:
Thursday, 31st of January 2008 – THE VENUE Melrose Arch 21h00
Wednesday, 6th of February 2008 – BARNYARD THEATRE Bresta 21h00
Tuesday, 12th of February 2008 – BARNYARD THEATRE Menlyn 21h00
