25 years on and WONDERboom are still rocking South Africa! It’s no small feat to be hailed as one of South Africa’s longest-lived and most legendary rock bands, and still going strong.
Although rock is the fundamental sound of the band, WONDERboom have delved into different genres, ranging from funk through to punk and even afro-dance.
None can deny that WONDERboom’s biggest strength is their live performance. From festivals to nightclubs, the band just kicks ass – consistently!
WONDERboom have released 9 albums, headlined many major South African festivals and have been nominated for 5 ‘Best Rock Album’ awards in the South African Music Awards. They also won the South African leg of the 2004 Global Battle of the Bands & came SECOND WORLDWIDE at the finals in the London Astoria!
There can be few South African music fans that aren’t familiar with their hits, like Never Ever, Jafta Rebel, Something Wrong, Green Fever, Africa, Shadows, Charlie, It’s Great to be Alive, Best Side, On The Radio, Karaoke Bar and, more recently on SA stations, Ooh La La, Southern Light, Voodoo Doll and, latest single, Rabbit Hole.
Cito, Martin Schofield and Wade Williams, the founding members of WONDERboom, have been writing songs and performing together for over 27 years and show no signs of stopping the rocking rollercoaster!
In early December 2017, the band traveled to Chengdu, China to represent South Africa at the Silk Road Indie Music Festival in a music performance competition and WON GOLD!!! They competed against 14 other countries (including UK, China, Japan and Germany) and clenched top prize.
A major recent highlight for the band is getting the sole support slot for Guns ‘N Roses, at the South African leg of their “Not In This Lifetime” tour, 29 November 2018. A dream come true for WONDERboom!
New single, Rabbit Hole and its official audio video is currently out.
