Cape Smoke Band.

“Cape Smoke”.

In the early 1980s, Bill Knight and Lifelong Buddy, Richard Tait, sharing a passion for the Music of Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, formed the duo, “Cape Smoke”, performing at numerous Venues and Festivals. They have collaborated over the years in many Projects, as well as pursuing numerous separate interests.

Bill Knight is a Cape Town legend. He is one of those songwriters for whom the tap never seems to dry up and he continues to produce material of the highest quality regardless of what is going on around him.

Richard Tait is equally well-known for his involvement in numerous Musical Tribute Shows, as well as being member of the Legendary “Falling Mirror”, and for hosting the Alma Cafe, a Venue which features the finest Musicians in the Country. Richard’s skill at acoustic and electric Guitars, Harmony Vocals and Musical Arrangements are widely recognised.

They are joined by long-time Barleycorn Music Club Stalwart, Jeremy Stephenson, on Bass guitar and harmony Vocals, and Percussionist extraordinaire, Derek Craig.
Jono Tait, Guitarist and Vocalist for numerous bands, including “Hatchetman” and “Old Town”, joins them on an ad-hoc basis.
Together they bring a new and exciting treatment to Bill Knight’s “Kaapse Mengsel” Music.
