Vinyl masters DJ Christos, Vinny Da Vinci , Bob Mabena, DJ Kanunu, DJ Jazzy D for Cape Town this weekend
Forget Throwback Thursday — the Gemini Reunion Tour is the only thing you need for all things nostalgic this weekend!
For two days only, Pretoria’s original kasi nightlife oasis will invade the Mother City for an epic club experience that will take you back to the 90’s, an era when music was at its legendary best and Club Gemini was THE place to see and be seen in.
Vinyl masters DJ Christos and Vinny Da Vinci will be joined on the decks by fellow pack leaders Bob Mabena, DJ Kanunu and DJ Jazzy D for two nights of pure music ecstasy. These legends led the music revolution back in the days when entertainment in the township was still a novelty; and Club Gemini was their playground.
This weekend, Cape Town will get a taste of that era when the DJs put together a mind-blowing music experience at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice in Tamboerskloof over the 1st and 2nd of April.
“This is a not-to-be-missed clubbing experience,” says Sponono Shibambo, who runs the family lifestyle business along with his siblings. “Some Capetonians might not necessarily be familiar with the Club Gemini brand and the kind of impact the club made in the township nightlife scene, so we are very excited to bring this pop up experience to them.”
Club Gemini was started by Daniel Shihambo, a maverick businessman, and became the most iconic Black night-club in Pretoria from the mid 70’s right up the mid 90’s when it closed down. The revival of the Gemini brand in its new modern guise, under the Lifestyle Connoisseur Club banner, is also a tribute and honour to Shihambo Senior’s legacy.
Adds Kgaugelo Maphai : “This Cape Town event is presented by Lifestyle Connoissuer Club in celebration of the Club Gemini brand, and is basically the re-launch. After countless requests for Club Gemini to ‘come back’, we finally decided to gift our loyal friends and patrons with pop up events that will happen in various cities throughout the year. Cape Town is only the beginning; the nightclub scene is about to get exciting again so look out for us in your cities!”
The Gemini Reunion Tour takes place at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice Cape Town on 1 and 2 April. Tickets start from R200 per night with VIP Lounge packages @ R3000 for 6 and are available from Ticketpro. There are a limited number of tickets, so get yours quickly. Doors open 7pm.
