Relax and have fun with friends and some fantastic up-and-coming local music talent at the Jackson Hall in GrandWest in March 2019.
B CHARLES EXPERIENCE
Singing professionally since 2007 and winning talent contests, Branton Charles Booysen is the frontman of The B Charles Experience. He grew up in Mitchells Plain and discovered his talent for music while singing outside a supermarket with his brother while they waited for their mother to finish her shopping.
He is backed by a band called The UnExpected, a group of young Cape Town musicians, formed in 2012.
Booysens and The UnExpected performed together at a UCT charity show and had such great chemistry that they decided to stay together. Their genre styles include RnB, pop, jazz, funk, Motown and old school, although The UnExpected are diverse with each member’s musical background ranging from classical to pop, and jazz to heavy metal.
