Bottomless Coffee Band
The Bottomless Coffee Band is a Cape Town-based multi-instrumentalist combo comprised of married couple Lourens and Esté Rabé.
After meeting in the Stellenbosch University choir and several coffee dates, the two learned they had much more in common than a love of folk and blues music. Esté, a theatre student at the time, and Lourens, who was completing one of his three business degrees, had a vision of restoring authenticity to music and reminding audiences of luminaries such as Johnny Cash, June Carter, and Bob Dylan. As a result, the Bottomless Coffee Band was formed.
After appearing at a number of corporate events and weddings, inquiries began to pour in. The band quickly realised that there was a genuine demand for their work and began booking their own public gigs and performed to sold-out theatres.
The band's next move was to document the first few years of their musical journey, and in November 2014, they published their debut album "Room With A View." The release of their debut album garnered national interest, and the band quickly embarked on their first national tour in February 2015.
.After a run of local tours, a tour to Namibia, festival slots, and playing alongside some of the industry's greatest names, BCB decided to take their biggest leap of faith yet, embarking on a two-month tour of Europe and the United Kingdom in July and August 2016.
The tour comprised performances in Belgium, the Netherlands, and England, as well as a week-long appearance at the iconic Edinburgh Fringe Festival, widely recognised as the world's greatest arts festival. BCB had become a global sensation!
So far in the Bottomless Coffee Band narrative, 2017 has been an eventful year. The band recently concluded an extremely successful Namibian tour and has begun production on their highly anticipated second album with famous producer and Springbok Nude Girls member Theo Crous.
