An awsome evening

What a great night Saturday was – to all of you who were there thank you for joining us the crowd support was awesome. It was so great to play with Redeye, they are all good friends of ours and we’ve been meaning to do a gig together for a long time now. So big thanks to them for coming all the way down from Jo’burg, the evening was everything we expected it to be and more.
At the moment that’ll be our last gig of the year, as my brother and I are visiting family in December, if a gig pops up between now and then we’ll let you know.
Words really can’t express how much we enjoyed Saturday, that’s why this post is so short.
Until next time
Peace and light

Expanding Horizons...

Hey again! I’m back due to popular demand. (Ha! Not really, but hey!) Not that I’m really anyone to say but, I’ve always claimed a band who can pull off covers successfully deserve the utmost respect and recognition. Its no easy task “replicating” (there’s the scientist in me coming out!) or duplicating the brilliance of a world-famous band, especially one of Coldplay’s standard and class!
But Zephyr does it again and again!
“Til Kingdom Come” is just the most recent addition to their repertoire and its not just Coldplay, but many other varied bands as well. This clearly shows their diversity and versatility and some may say its brave, which it is, but if it’s done properly, a cover can earn an enormous amount of appreciation from the public to a band.
So can Zephyr do it? For sure!
Ambitious, yes. Successful? Definitely!

Here the beautiful lyrics, interpret as you will, no matter how you look at them, they’re very special!

"Til Kingdom Come" – Coldplay
Steal my heart and hold my tongue.
I feel my time, my time has come.
Let me in, unlock the door.
I've never felt this way before.

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummer begins to drum,
I don't know which way I'm going,
I don't know which way I've come.

Hold my head inside your hands,
I need someone who understands.
I need someone, someone who hears,
For you, I've waited all these years.

For you, I'd wait 'til kingdom come.
Until my day, my day is done.
And say you'll come, and set me free,
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.

In your tears and in your blood,
In your fire and in your flood,
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing,
"I wouldn't change a single thing."

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummers begin to drum,
I don't know which way I'm going,
I don't know what I've become

For you, I'd wait 'til kingdom come,
Until my days, my days are done.
Say you'll come and set me free,
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.

But wait! It gets better! Call now... (Just kidding).
Zephyr's next gig is at Forgotten Falls, on the 10th of Nov. They are performing with Redeye, a funkadelic band from Gauteng, good friends of Zephyr and just as talented.
Come along and you'll get a chance to see Zephyr perform "Til Kingdom Come", plus Ladybug (see below) and many of their others - new and old, originals and "replicates"!
See you there! Don't miss it!
