Six Become Five

We announced in May that Debbie Bezuidenhout - percussion and sound effects - has decided to step down as a performing member of Can of Worms. This decision is in no way a reflection of our relationship with Debs who will always be a Worm at heart. We want to express our thanks for all the time, creativity, energy and love that she has put into the band to date; we've really had some incredible experiences in the short time that we've been together and we wish her all the best for the next adventure.

Mdumbi Green Fair Music Festival 2018

Killer performance to kick off the Mdumbi Green Fair Music Festival on Friday night
as caught by Roelien (Red Events and Photography)

Can of Worms was invited to perform at the third annual Mdumbi Green Fair Music Festival on 18 - 20 May. While this festival feels like "home turf" it is an absolute highlight of our year - where big South African acts come together to support rural Eastern Cape community businesses and initiatives in one of the most beautiful corners of the Wild Coast. Our performance slots were absolute corkers - a real party set at 9.30pm on Friday night and kicking off the show at 7.30pm on Saturday.

Performance Highlights

We've been jamming regularly at Eastern Cape venues with a rumbling Summer Season kicking off with a mini-tour to Port Elizabeth, Jeffreys Bay and Cape St. Francis, supporting big local SA acts including Desmond and the Tutu's and Jeremy Loops, cheering in the New Year at The C Club (Chintsa) with Gangs of Ballet and supporting local East London creative arts school Belgravia in a recent benefit concert. You can see photos of these events on our instagram page @canofwormssa - why not give us a follow while you're there?
