The ever-popular annual SA Tattoo returns to Montecasino’s outdoor event area for just 6 performances from Thursday, 5 September to Sunday, 8 September 2013. From the mighty hail of the drum major to the toe tapping of the Highland dancers and the traditional sounds of the massed pipes and drums, this year’s programme combines the finest local and international talents to present South Africa’s biggest show ...
Now in its 5th year, the SA Tattoo has grown in stature and popularity. More than 90 000 people have enjoyed the multi-cultural and multi-national performances that bring diverse mass entertainment to Montecasino year after year. The organisers of the SA Tattoo are delighted to announce the return of the iconic Top Secret Drum Corps from Switzerland who previously performed at the 2008 Tattoo to critical acclaim. Having developed almost rock star status in Europe, the SA Tattoo is proud to welcome back this group of precision drummers who turn drumming into an entertainment art form. Renowned beyond the world of drumming and Tattoo organisations, their unique blend of American-Scottish-Basel styles has made the “Corps” musicians a top international act that has won the hearts of global audiences for more than 20 years! “As the Top Secret Drum Corps has limited their performances to only a few select venues, we regard their participation at this year’s Tattoo is a major coup for South Africa”, says Simon Carter, Executive Producer of the SA Tattoo.
Presented by JacarandaFM and DSTV, this year’s SA Tattoo line-up is the show’s most exciting yet. Featuring sensational international acts from France and Switzerland, the show’s Producers are particularly pleased that iconic local rock band; Just Jinjer is the headliner for the show. Having toured internationally with mega stars U2, Counting Crows and Def Leppard and with album sales exceeding a quarter of a million plus two albums with double platinum status, Just Jinjer is one of this country’s biggest rock band exports. Now Just Jinjer brings its unique musical sounds to the wonderful mix of Tattoo acts that also features drum majorettes, a local massed choir, the Johannesburg Youth Orchestra, the SAPS Tshwane Band, the National Ceremonial Guard Band and the Code Red Drum Corps.
On the international front, the traditional French Paratrooper army band, Musique des Parachutistes direct from France brings colourful European flair to the Tattoo while Top Secret Drum Corps from Basel, Switzerland is set to wow local audiences with its display its quick paced rhythms and knife-edge drumming precision. A remarkable act from Taiwan will soon be announced. "Our most sensational international line-up ever." adds Simon Carter.
