Bassline closes its doors, opens new chapter

The Soil 17It's a brand new year and time for the Bassline to say goodbye to its current venue in Newtown, like they did from their Melville premises, Johannesburg and proudly rebrand as BASSLINE LIVE. 

BASSLINE LIVE is the new incarnation and is now a full service music industry service provider and would like to thank everyone that's become a loyal supporter over the last 22 years. This includes the opening of the BASSLINE LIVE artist management division, and have already signed up two of South Africa's most exciting performers, namely Vusi Mahlasela and Nakhane Toure (voice on Black Coffee’s “We dance again”) . We are especially excited

Owner Brad Holmes had this to say; "We couldn't be more excited to start this new chapter in Bassline's history. We are committed to bringing you the greatest in live shows, artists and festivals as we embark on this new phase in the Bassline's journey."

As has been a traditional at the closed venue, BASSLINE LIVE in partnership with Kaya FM presents THE SOIL - Live at The Lyric at Gold Reef City (BASLINE LIVE’s new venue). Bassline's closure meant that the Kaya FM's monthly Live @ The Bassline series that began in August 2015, had to find a new home, and “The Lyric at Gold Reef City was the natural choice. With a world-class theatre on board, Kaya FM were happy to extend the agreement with Bassline Live to produce a monthly series that will run throughout 2017.”

Sensational South African a-capella group THE SOIL (pictured) will kickstart the new year and a new Kaya FM Bassline music series when they perform at the new platform on Saturday 4th February 2017. The in-demand group recently grabbed headlines with their new album, “Echoes of Kofifi”, that shot past official Gold sales status (over 15 000 albums sold) three weeks after its release.

 Presented by Kaya FM and Bassline Live, the show will be proudly supported by Old Mutual as exclusive financial services partner. South African Breweries will also partner with Bassline Live for this show.  

 Tickets available from Computicket for R180, or at The Lyric at Gold Reef City box office at R200.

Moreover, as well as bringing the greatest local and international artists onto our stages over the years, Bassline has also grown a strong reputation as leaders in concert production on a major scale. These events that include the Bassline Africa Day and Fete De La Musique are testament to the experience of the brand and such events will continue to be a major part of the 2017 roster. BASSLINE LIVE also offers full PA rig rentals consisting of front-of-house and monitor sound with backline and a lighting rig.
