Deja Vu/Outro 10
-1 for the MC springing surprise solos on the musos (Jik was like haai!) lol
+2 for matts facial expression during his solo (mos wysing Gabe like )
But has the potential to be big, considering the talent levels. Mos need some lekker connections. Music Connection sponsors? Stuff like that.
Overall: A solid 7
Hehe.. Music: 7. Talent: 8. Band: 7.5 (due to randomness of mc with the solos and some verse slip ups with ivana and some genre that I didn’t smaak). Overall: 7.5.. Like the show. Entertaining. Pretty girls. Nice atmosphere. EHx4 represented well. +5 for matty
Talent was better than expected. Some acts were really cool. Show wouldve had a better overall vibe if the MC was more with it. i think people wouldve taken it more seriously as a fund raiser
Yeah. But like Jade who was awesome… And the rapping dudes.People need to recognize that. Plush not so much
Setup and layout was nice. Give the event a 6 because it had more potential to show off some of the serious talent.
Big ups to the Barberis brothers (from Barbieri Sound Reinforcement) for putting on a good showcase, may the following ones be bigger and better!
