On Friday night Mc Gregorites were treated to a very special evening at The Reservoir, 30 Church Street.
Virtuoso Cape Town guitarist Gary Thomas rocked the reservoir in a stunning display of guitar magic. Close to 60 lucky people packed the stoep to enjoy 90 minutes of guitar mastery under a starry, moonlit sky. On a perfect evening, Gary rewarded all present with a dazzling display of his musical skill. The rapturous response from all there was indicative of just how much everybody enjoyed the performance. What he achieves with a guitar, stomp box and effects microphone is amazing. To cap off the night he even produced a violin bow to play the final tune on the night.
All in all a fabulous evening, and a great way to start the McGregor Poetry Festival activities for the year- he really is a poet with that guitar. Thanks to all the local friends who came out to support the event. Hopefully it will not be the last time that The Reservoir reverberates to applause! Special thanks to Gary Thomas for agreeing to be with us. Best of luck for the rest of your SA Tour and good luck in Europe.
