Arguably one of the most famous singers of all time, Elvis emerged from humble country beginnings to become a rock & roll phenomenon whose influence was so huge it still resonates decades after his untimely death in 1977. His energized interpretations of songs and unique performance style led him to both great success and initial controversy.
“Elvis – Burning Love” brings you the music and magic of this incredible artist. Produced, marketed and directed by Rainbow Dust & Music Inc. (Skye Wilson and Monique Sher.)
Recently Skye has been enjoying success with Rumours of Fleetwood Mac tribute show in which she is lead vocalist and musical director. Elvis Burning Love is a new project for which she is producer and musical director.
Elvis Burning Love features a full band of extremely talented musicians fronted by the incredible Dave Ferguson. Expect to be transported back in time to experience rock n roll history.
Lonesome Dave Ferguson is certainly no stranger to the South African music scene. Harmonica player Dave Ferguson has been playing extensively in and around Cape Town and beyond since the early 90’s which included a 12 year stint in the UK (also travelling to Nashville, Memphis, Australia.)
Now Cape Town is going to get to see Lonesome Dave Ferguson in a guise they have not seen him in before. Many who know him will know that he has a long standing love and respect for the king of rock ‘n roll, Elvis Presley.
Dave has joined the Elvis Burning Love Tribute show as the lead vocalist. His raw and honest vocal talent shines through as he pays respect to the King and this harmonica player has the moves too!
Elvis Burning Love welcomes Dave Ferguson to the show and we all look forward to entertaining you with the highest degree of musicianship and fun.
Dave has worked with (session and live work) many international and local names, including The Arlenes, Emily Barker, Sophia, John Townes Van Zandt, Bob Margolin (Muddy Waters), Michelle Shocked, Candye Kane, Mickey Harte, Lucky Oceans, Dave Clarke, Winston Delandro (Guitarist for Bob Marley and the Wailers 1965-1972), Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy), Ian Siegal, Jimmy Dludlu, Prime Circle, Taxi Violence, Bed on bricks, A-King, Red Earth and Rust, Valiant Swart and Ollie Viljoen to mention a few.
Top Cape Town musicians Dieter Stutz on bass & backing vocals, Dave Goldberg on keyboards & backing vocals, Guido Helm on lead guitar & backing vocals and Steven Jacobson on drums create “Elvis – Burning Love.”
Dieter Stutz grew up on Hendrix, Joplin, Cream, Rolling Stones, Beatles and Johnny Winter. He joined the first of many school bands when he was 14, playing bass because all the other instruments where taken. After emigrating from Zürich to Cape Town in 1980 he played in various cover bands before meeting the late, great guitarist John Mair in 1981. They formed the successful “Sweatband” with Les Cook on drums and Wendy Oldfield on Vocals. In 1984 “Sweatband” turned pro and toured South Africa non-stop until 1990. During this time they recorded two albums, had many TV appearances and two major hits on the Radio 5 charts. Since then, Dieter has worked with “Kevin Abraham & The Kick”, “SE7EN”, Rolling Stones tribute band “Sticky Fingers”, “Greg & The Comeback Kings” (performing and recording an original album.), “The Sunshines”. He was also an integral part of the live backing and recording for various artists that have emerged from the “Silver Tulip Music” label, such as Louise Carver, Vanessa Nolan and Petronel Baard.
Dave Goldberg (also known to his fellow musicians as Dawie) has been playing piano/keyboards and singing professionally for the past 20 years. Born in Johannesburg he grew up playing the many venues in Rocky Street perfecting his craft. After relocating to Cape Town he formed “The Dave Goldberg Band” which quickly became known as “The DG Band”. They deliver varied, vibrant original and select covers. Dave lists career highlights as touring with Baxtop on their last reunion, performing for many years with Tim Parr (Elemental and Baxtop) and Tigger Reunert.
With over 25 years of experience in the music industry, guitarist Guido Helm is no stranger to the weird and wonderful lifestyle of a full time musician. Guido hails from Windhoek, Namibia where he began studying classical and electric guitar at age 14 at the highly acclaimed College for the Arts, (previously known as Windhoek Conservatoire). He relocated to Cape Town in 1996 to pursue his musical career. He joined his first project “Calamity Jane” as lead guitarist. The band recorded a few singles which receiving airplay on 5FM and played various festivals including Wingerdstock and Up the Creek. In 2000, a new project was formed called “Kelvin Declined”. Thee band quickly gained popularity in Cape Town and recorded their self titled debut album. The album produced 5 radio singles and they toured the country and playing festivals including Oppikoppi and Woodstock amongst others. A music video to the hit single “42” made it onto MTV Europe. Since then Guido has played in other bands and played sessions for artists such as “Emile Minnie” and “Alchemy”. In 2008 Guido relocated to Johannesburg to join rock band “One Day Remains”. The band signed a 3 album deal with David Gresham Records, released their debut album and started touring and receiving extensive air time on radio and television with songs like “The Need” and “Never Say Die”. In 2009 Guido crossed paths with Mark Beling who had departed from his band Mean Mr. Mustard and was offered to join his new project, “The Mark Beling Band”. The project saw the release of a new album “Mercury”, through Sting Records and resulted in radio play and supporting “The Christians” on their South African tour. Whilst in Johannesburg, Guido also did session recordings and gigs for artists such as Blackbyrd, Peter Pote (Evolver), Nelda, Tresspass and MENS. He relocated back to Cape Town in 2021 and we are very pleased he did.
