Summary Profile...An outstanding South African band, working from a 2-piece up to a full 7-piece party band.
Formally known as Huey & da Boyz this live 7 piece outfit comprising some of our country’s top session musicians have undergone a ‘restyling’ and has emerged as Purple Hue.
Fronted by the dynamic duo of Huey Louw and Thabo Mdluli, who are no strangers to the South African entertainment scene, they have an array of on - stage musical reviews, television appearances as well as radio airplay to their credit. Both have honed and nurtured their skills on the corporate scene as well as the theatrical environment. It goes without saying that their collaborative overall performance is effortlessly bouncy and naturally slick.
There is an element of ease and malleability when playing tunes from across numerous music genres. Any evening can begin with a gentle love ballad and wrap up with a pulsating dance beat. Everything else in between ranging from music from the revolutionary 60’s, disco 70’s, the magical Motown era as well as very own African classics and reggae. There is always a sense of timelessness with the choice of songs that form part of the repertoire. Jazz, swing and a hint of Gypsy Kings are added proportionally just to spice things up.
Purple Hue have performed for numerous blue chip companies, the likes of, Hollard Insurance, Avusa, Jo’burg Expo Centre, Standard Bank, ACSA , SAB, Radisson Group and Hewlett Packard to name but a few. Corporate year- end do’s, product launches and award’s ceremonies are their forte’. Weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries are also an opportunity to enjoy the talents of this versatile band.
Many satisfied clients can attest to the fact that hiring Purple Hue is “the most apt choice of entertainment for an evening.”
