Due to popular demand, another Joburg show has been added for Shakey Graves!

ADDED DATE: Tuesday, 14 April – Barnyard Theatre Rivonia, Johannesburg

Breakout Events is excited to announce that a 2nd Joburg show has been added for Shakey Graves on Tuesday 14 April at the Barnyard Theatre in Rivonia.

Many Joburg fans were left disappointed when Shakey Graves’ Joburg show on the 13th of April SOLD OUT within 2 weeks of announcement, so fans will be excited to know there’s another chance to see their favourite award-winning Americana musician live.

The show on the 14th of April has Shakey Graves joined by local support acts Georgetown and Jacques Moolman (from Shadowclub) at the Rivonia Barnyard Theatre.

Award-winning Americana musician, Shakey Graves heads to South Africa for the first time this April and is set to perform at Rivonia Barnyard.

Austin-based Shakey Graves first garnered attention with his one-man band set up, which originated after he grew tired of having to borrow kick drums and high hats in order to perform. His solution consisted of a modified suitcase that functions as both a kick drum and a tambourine stand built by a close friend. Most of his 2011 self-released debut album Roll the Bones features him playing solo.

His unique style of performance led to him being asked to be the official “busker” for the Edward Sharpe and Mumford & Sons Railroad Revival Tour in 2011, where he played music for patrons entering each venue.

By 2014 Graves had his trio band set up and made their TV debut on “Conan”, along with performances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers”.

Graves won the Best Emerging Artist award at the 2015 Americana Music Awards and has since released two albums and an EP, including 2018’s “Can’t Wake Up” album.
