Steve Draper as the big-hearted Klaza Kalish.
On Sunday May 5 at 6pm, the Masque Theatre presents something completely different for music lovers who embrace all genres. Steve Draper is a personable and talented man who is a good musician and is capable of playing the guitar, organ, accordion, base, trumpet, and trombone – but relax! He will not be playing all of these during this show.
Steve loves Gypsy and Eastern European music in general as this music has a passionate rhythm which is easily expressed on the guitar. He loves the works of great cabaret performers and musicals so he has combined these genres to compose the music and become a real persona viz. “Klaza Kalish”!
“Klaza Kalish is Big Hearted! He is the Eastern Bloc Bard! He is Happy, Sad But Always Singing!”
His songs are from the heart and he and his songs are interesting, entertaining and diverse. Listen and sway, tap your feet, feel a tear, have a laugh or just drink in songs like “Olden Days”, “The Carnival, “Comrade” and more. “Klaza Kalish” with his Russian gravelled voice, provides the show –“Songs my Uncle Teach Me”.
Tickets: R75 (Theatre Club R65) Snacks (including Russian style) on sale.
