Gary Deacon DuoLocation: Based in Cape Town
The Gary Deacon Duo is one of the most popular ensembles of its sort in Cape Town. Consisting of ever popular guitarist Gary Deacon, and Willie van Zyl on sax / clarinet / flute, this duo is a popular choice for background music, with an extremely wide repertoire ranging from classical and light jazzy to popular contemporary.
Should the usual full-time members not be available, the duo often performs with regular alternative performers, such as such as well-know saxophonists Marc de Kock and Stuart Goodwin. The duo is happy to interact with the guests, and will welcome any special requests. An added advantage is their mobile ablity to perform at virtually any location and their ability to stroll around.
With a well-established reputation of entertaining without being intrusive, the Duo is able to provide the perfect background sounds for wedding ceremonies, pre-dinner drinks and/or main events, and is also a popular entertainment option for corporate cocktail functions.
The Duo has performed at most of the top venues in and around Cape Town and the Winelands, including:

I meant to drop you a line after the event, but to be honest everything just got a bit crazy! Gary was great, really felt the mood of the room and they were just terrific. We ended up with 250 people and it was ideal. Everyone really enjoyed it so many thanks for the recommendation!

I wanted to say a very special thank you for arranging the Gary Deacon Duo for us. I was so sad that the day did not allow ANY time for me to meet them personally, but everyone has commented on how fantastic they were. I must say that when we were nearby I heard them play and it was really “Music to my ears”. They were simply marvellous and if there is ever another event I’ll be calling you again!
