CapricornLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Capricorn is undoubtedly one of the most versatile bands in South Africa today, playing the largest and most varied repertoire anyone could wish for. From the 40’s to the latest hits, from Latino to the latest hits released by European, British, American and local artists; Capricorn caters for all ages, nationalities and themes.
Multilingual front man, Jean-Francois Martinelli, is a subtle “party maker”, who ensures that a good time is had by all. Having been employed by Sol Kerzner for many years, the band has performed at many of the top venues and corporate events in South Africa and abroad. Their reliability and ability to adapt to any audience has made them “first choice” with the country’s top hotels, entertainment venues, and event organisers. They are regularly asked to travel to major centres to perform gala award evenings, weddings, birthday parties, launches and other events.
A major advantage of the band is their ability to retain the appropriate sound volume, having perfected the art of entertaining the "dancers", whilst allowing the rest of the guests to talk comfortably. They are also known for their very few and short breaks during which background music is provided. At company functions, they can create whatever mood is desired and include “crossover music”, the latest Kwaito hits and other types of African music over and above the mainstream styles they cover.
Whether performing as a duo or a five piece or anything in between, they field the country’s top musicians and entertainers (early booking is advisable to ensure availability.)
This multilingual group performs in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Lingala, Arabic, Hebrew, Turkish, Greek, Indian, Russian, and more exotic languages!
Performances for weddings / Bar Mitzvahs
Having performed at countless weddings, Capricorn is your recipe for success when it comes to wedding entertainment! The artist embraces the fact that no two weddings are the same, and work closely with the couple to achieve the optimal setlist and entertainment concept for their Big Day. For Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat-Mitzvahs, the band has a vast selection of Horas and other Jewish music.
Capricorn are amazing! The performance was enjoyed by all.

They were great, thanks!
I had a fantastic birthday party and everyone had a great time! A big thank you goes to Jean-Francois and his fabulous Capricorn Band. They certainly played a huge part in making it a celebration to remember, and the guests loved them. They are a very talented and professional group, the music was great, and Jean-Francois certainly is the entertainer who knows how to set the tone and to get the crowd into the party mood. Thanks once again for everything, and I will most definitely keep you and the Capricorn Band in mind for future events.
