INTERNATIONAL MASONIC RIDERS ASSOCIATION

 

WIDOWS SONS MUSIC FESTIVAL
Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa witnessed its very first biker’s music festival on Saturday 26 April 2014 when the local chapter of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association held its 3rd fundraising event on the grounds of the Killarney International Raceway.

The first two events held during 2013 was aimed at the community, masons and biking friends of the chapter and both events where hugely successful with the charity market and music day in February 2013 attracting in excess of 800 people and the Comedy showcase in July 2013 selling out all 250 tickets 2 weeks prior to the event.

As is always the case with the Cape Town chapter, something different needed to be done this year. It was decided to move away from the market and focus more on the music. And so was born the first biker music fest for Cape Town.

5 bands live on stage. 8 hours of entertainment with a special side event for the ladies in the biking community. In terms of the ladies entertainment and non-music entertainment, lets just say, ‘what happens at the Music Fest, stays at the Music Fest”.

KORDA, Barrecode, De Wallen and Axe & Meliz all extremely talented local artists rocked the more than 600 attendees with the hits of the Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, White Stripes, Metallica, ACDC and many more. To take it down a notch Black Ice provided some smooth Jazz to sooth the crowd.

“That was awesome, awesome, awesome!!” said Amanda Bruwer a regular biking event attendee and somewhat of a local legend with her Honda CBR1000RR effectionally known as ‘rooikat’ (Afrikaans word for Caracal – a wild cat).

“WOW!!! Lots of “Day Jols” (jols is local slang for a biking club day event) can learn from your event, definitely a must for all bikers. Good Job.” said Fran Engelbrecht a seasoned biker and local businessman who owns Motorcycles & Bits 

“Been running the clubhouse at Killarney for almost 7 years now! Your day was by far the best!” said Paul “Pablo” Kelly of Killarney International Raceway and a member of the MOTH motorcycle association.

Yvette Wolverson, the new clubhouse manager at Killarney International Raceway added: “Well William, as the new clubhouse manager, this was my first and I certainly think you guys did an amazing job. My team thoroughly enjoyed working your event, thanks for making our day a fun-filled day, a working day made easy. You are all full of heart – Paul is right, the other guys are going to have to lift their game – you’ve set the benchmark very high – looking forward to next year!”
