With the Wind Van Smith

 

VAN SMITH is an independant 3-piece musical group from the East of Johannesburg. Van Smith was formed in July 2011 as a 2-piece acoustic outfit with Jaryd Smith and Willie van Tonder. In April 2012, Reyno van der Linde joined the band on the drums and percussion. They have a distinct, funky, folky, groovy sound that softens even the hardest beard. They also have a strong dance element in their music. They perform a wide range of upbeat covers and original songs and performs as an acoustic outfit or as a full band. Their shows are fun and lighthearted and they can provide the perfect atmoshpere for a great party or a relaxed Sunday afternoon. They are very busy on the Pretoria and East Rand live music scene and they perform regularly at well known venues in these areas. (See List of venues below) They also travel regularly for performances in the Free State and the Western Cape. In April 2012, Van Smith travelled to Oudtshoorn in the Western Cape to perform a total of 16 shows at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (ABSA KKNK). Including performances on the RSG-Stage and at the MK SESSIONS.
