There’s no better place to be the first Sunday of every month than 6 Desmond Street – Katy’s Palace is alive with Beukes & Delaney’s Irish Boere-Blues and the mesmerising smell of Fresh‘s chicken curry and roast lamb and of course nobody can ignore Katy’s epic wraparound view. Sir James is full of old-school and new-school vinyl traders and collectors flipping through boxes of LPs, sipping on drafts (even at 10am) and enjoying the scratchy, authentic sound of the vinyl. Milk Bar, the newest kid on the block, is the ultimate stop for a good cappuccino and sit-down brunch by the fireside. And of course, Amatuli – three levels of retail adventure. You could get lost for hours in the maze of antique furniture, African art and one of a kind pieces.
If you’ve been to Katy’s Palace for Sunday Lunch, you’ve probably experienced this eccentric, eclectic and extremely talented duo’s tunes.
Beukes and Delaney’s musical mix of folk/Irish/rock or “Irish-boereblues” has an airborne energy that gets even the most conservative foot tapping, and for most of us, well their gyspy-jazzy music just makes us want to get up and dance!
We chatted to Christoff Beukes and David Delaney about music, their debut album, “Good to be Alive”, career highs and lows and animals on carousels – of course!
