HAVANNA has entered the busiest time of the year which goes from August to New Year.


Apart from the Private Functions, HAVANNA performed at 5 public venues and one Corporate Event this month.

If you are from Nelspruit or White River, Affipad Boskombuis and Kokopellis are venues HAVANNA performs at on a regular basis.

Affipad Boskombuis is a venue with a Mozambique-ish vibe to it.The venue has a section with open fires, pizza ovens and has an overall rustic and urban feel.They also offer Live Entertainment once a week.

HAVANNA will be performing at Affipad on Friday the 30th of August, from 19:00 - 22:00.             .                            b2ap3_thumbnail_Affipad-3.jpg

 Kokopellis,originally based in White River, has re-opened.You will now find this Tapas Bar/Restaurant at the Elanwini Golf Park, Riverside.The spectacular view and delicious food is worth a visit or two. HAVANNA has been performing on their wooden deck on Sunday afternoon. It was a chilly afternoon but it didn’t scare the warm-blooded Nelspruiters to go and have a Sunday lunch at this cosy venue with fire places to warm up their spirit. HAVANNA has finalized further bookings on the 15th and the 22nd of September.Come and join us from 12:00 - 15:00 and get spoilt with their cuisine and HAVANNA’s layed back sounds.

In spite of the lack of advertising, the DROS in Middelburg was packed on the 17th this month when HAVANNA made their debut in Middelburg. The enterview at Radio KOSMOS obviously paid off since we are newcomers to the public in that region. Thank you VERY much to all our new fans in Middelburg. We will be delighted seeing you again in the near future!

The legendary Hotel Numbi in Hazyview, has been hosting the ladies from the Women’s Agricultural Union (Vroue Landbou Unie) for their Yearly Conference on the 21st of August. The 200 ladies were treated with the warm hospitality of the Fick-family who has been operating Hotel Numbi as a successful family business for the last 50 years.




HAVANNA was honored to perform for these ladies on their GALA evening. They all were dressed up in beautiful outfits in a rather formal setting but nevertheless some of the ladies let their hair loose and sang with on some of the songs. HAVANNA was delighted having so many “backing vocals” sharing our passion for the music. Thank you Ladies. You have inspired us to continue doing what we love most.

Last but not least....HAVANNA’s smiley for today:

“Rock musicians normally play 3 chords for an audience of 3000 people. Jazz musicians normally play 3000 chords for an audience of 3 people.”

Havanna is a 2-piece band performing throughout South Africa at any kind of function. Weddings, Private and Birthday Parties, Business and corporate events, Opening of new Businesses, Year End, Christmas, New Years functions, Golf days - we compliment ANY function. We consist out of Wynand Mare (drums) and Ilse Muller (piano and vocals).
