Acoustic Arts 5,2nd semi finalists performing…


Judges Natalie Chapman and Bruce Dennill had the unenviable task of trying to pick three finalists out of an very strong line up.

The first slot has always been the most difficult and  Roland Albertson handled it really well

I did enjoy his set.  

Justin Serrao decided to pick it up and really took it to the audience 

He certainly gave it his all. 

I had missed Peter Hoven in the heats, but I had seen him in another production so I had an idea of what to expect 

And he certainly did not disappoint. 

Hendrik Marx stepped up to the plate and performed well. 

His final song is already charting on one of the local radio stations. 

Daniel Cowen brought a fan club/family with him and they, together with the rest of the audience were very supportive. 

Thanks for a great set Daniel. 

Polar Bear John warmed up the evening with a hot performance… 

He remained seated for his performance…

And this is a Polar Bear, John…

I missed Shaun Jacobs in the heats and I was blown away by his performance… 

His guitar work and his vocals were spectacular. 

Certain audience members were very focused on the performances… 

And the big moment arrives… 

Going through to the finals on 3 July are: Shawn Jacobs, Peter Hoven and Polar Bear John. 
And what is at stake for the finalists?

The big prize! A USA Breedlove guitar and…
A Mark Acoustic 601 Amp!
Prizes for the competition total in excess of R20000.00.

Both of these prizes are sponsored by Music Connection…but wait, that is not all…
