    Luca & Tim Duo

    Luca & Tim Duo

    Based: Cape Town

    Violin & Sax meets Electronic music

    Luca and Tim take their listeners on a diverse musical journey suitable for any event.

    Be it background beats setting the tone with the distant sound of violin and sax weaving its way through the crowd or keeping the dance floor pumping into the early hours of the morning, they are up for it.

    They are genre fluid musicians and to pin them under one would just be wrong and somewhat offensive. The energy they bring to every performance is unbeatable and with 2 music degrees under their belts there is no shortage of depth and quality. 

    They combine their different production skills and influences into their sets delivering a truly unique product.  Some have said it feels as if they are half from the future and half from the past meeting somewhere perfectly in the middle but you can make that decision for yourself…

     

    Luca and Tim can offer the following for any event.

    • PA system for performances / speeches and anything needing to be amplified at an event.
    • Solo Classical violin
    • Solo Jazz saxophone
    • Lounge background electronic music with live saxophone and violin improvisation
    • Upbeat electronic music with live improvisation
    • Original repertoire featuring Luca’s vocals inspired by gypsy jazz, Goldfish and Bonobo
    • Dance floor classics with live improvisation

      Larry Soffer

      Larry Soffer

      Based: Cape Town.

      Born on 25 October 1982 in Cape Town, South Africa, Larry Soffer’s childhood dream of becoming a mentalist and magician has become a reality. Larry now resides between Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa, but travels internationally regularly inspiring audiences around the globe.

      At the age of 13 Larry enrolled at the College of Magic in Cape Town, South Africa where he then studied the art of Magic for 4 years and graduated with a Silver Medallion – the highest accolade which one can achieve. It is interesting to know the summer before Larry enrolled his family friend read a book by Linda Goodman called Star Signs, and discovered that through a numerological chart, when added up, the letters of Larry’s name mean “The Magician”.

      After graduation, Larry took interest in Mentalism and started studying it in his own time. Mentalism can be explained as magic of the mind and includes acts of mind-reading, metal bending and telekinesis. He expanded these abilities to the extent of demonstrating them on television and radio, affecting people across these platforms in their own homes, making their spoons and forks bend, fixing broken watches, making light bulbs burst, making their TV’s switch on and creating other explainable phenomena.

      The Magic of Larry Soffer has spearheaded itself into a brand and he is now the most influential name in Magic in SA today.
