“We look forward to entertaining mountain bikers in the beautiful setting of Blaauwklippen Wine Estate,” says Eugenie Potter, Newton & Co Bass Player / Vocalist.  “We love to share our music and perform to as many people as possible.  The Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience gives us a platform to do so.  The MTB community is awesome.  We find them to be very friendly and it’s great meeting so many different types of people participating in a healthy outdoors activity.  We hope that they enjoy our music as much as we will enjoy performing for them.”

Alternative Rock Band, Ben Dey and the Concrete Lions are excited to perform live for mountain bikers and trail runners.  “This will be the first time that we perform at a mountain biking and trail run event,” says Dey, Lead Singer of Ben Dey and the Concrete Lions. We are really happy to be booked for this event.  It’s always great to play music in new places for new people.  I think mountain biking and trail running is a great way to experience nature.  We need more people doing things outside, for our environment to be acknowledged and protected.  We’re looking forward to sharing our new songs with entrants, supporters, families and friends.”
