Synchronicity

SYNCHRONICITY is a live music duo, formed in April 2007, and is based in Tableview, Western Cape in the Republic of South Africa. We are a husband & wifeteam who, having both gigged extensively with other bands, finally gave in to the natural urge to mix business and pleasure!

SYNCHRONCITY is Riaan Combrink (44) – guitars & vocals – and Alison Combrink (33) – vocals. We play pop & rock covers from the 60’s to 2011, basically anything from the Beatles to Lady Ga-Ga. During 2008 we completed two one year residencies at the Flaming Fox (Parklands) and Sangria Taverna (Bothasig), a three-month cycle at Guzzlers (Tableview) and an one-year residency at Countdown Sports Café (Blaauwberg).

We also played two corporate functions for Porters Auto (Culemborg) during 2007, a black-tie event for Metropolitan Oddyssey (BMW Pavillion at V & A Waterfront), and performed at a number of other private functions and weddings at some of the top function venues in the Western Cape. We also played the year-end function of African Maritime Services in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

During 2010 we also completed a lengthy cycle at Pirates Grill House (Plumstead) and commenced a residency at Casa Do Mar (Tableview) that continues into 2011. We have also played a number of engagements at other premier venues; eg. Quay (V & A Waterfront), Doodles (Blaauwberg), Seaforth Restaurant (Simon's Town), Dias Tavern (Cape Town CBD), The Italian Club (Milnerton), Verdi Pizzeria (Bothasig), Boogie Bar (Blaauwberg) and the Dubliner @ Kennedy's (Long St, CBD).

SYNCHRONICITY were semi-finalists in the Bands4Africa 2010 New Talent Search
hosted at Quay 4.
