This past weekend the 2011 MK Awards Ceremony was held at the CTICC (Cape Town International Convention Centre). The Mother City crowd were treated to some excellent performances by Foto na Dans, Zebra and Giraffe, Die Heuwels Fantasties ft. Thieve, Jack Parow ft. JR, Prime Circle and Van Coke Kartel (winners of the Best Live Act MK Award). There were 61 nominees in 13 categories for this year’s MK Awards.

Unfortunately I could not attend the event because I was at the Where BLUES Meets ROCK Festival (near Bronkhorstspruit) this past weekend. I did have the opportunity to congratulate 2 of the guys from Die Tuindwergies for winning the award for Best Newcomer though. Running Wolf’s Rant would like to take this opportunity to congratulate this year’s MK Award Winners. The quality of local music just keeps improving and improving every year proving yet again that SA Music certainly is Alive and Well!
