LA.VI is an upbeat alternative blues band fresh from their cross country tour and first ever gig at Splashy Fen music festival in KZN, It’s great to see a band with such musical vibe getting started.

This weekend was a busy one here at Cape Audio College. The campus was teaming with people, more specifically interested prospective students, all here in the Waverly Business Park to see Cape Audio College on display.
The day was spent through tours around our facilities, as well as a very informative talk presented by Terrence Adendorff of Primedia/Kfm on careers in Sound Engineering, some valuable inside information on the radio business, and on the sound industry in general. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come out to the event on a Saturday morning, so now it’s time to join our forum, and I’m sure it won’t be long until we’ll be seeing you back on campus as student getting to grips with the art of recording.
