Park Acoustics: BCUC Interview

BCUC are performing at the the 100th edition of Park Acoustics (which is happening on Sunday the 1st of December 2019 in the Voortrekker Monument Nature Reserve in Pretoria).

I recently had a chat to the band about Park Acoustics and a few other things. This is what they had to say…

You guys have pretty much become a staple act at Park Acoustics over the last 99 shows. Can you still remember your very first time performing at Park Acoustics? When was it and how was your experience?

Wow! It was a long time ago, back in 2014.   I remember we were were excited and anxious to get it done and do what we love to do on stage.  


What are your standout memories from previous Park Acoustics where you guys have performed?

Park Acoustics has been good to us, from the crew to the audience.  We have loved all our experiences there. It’s a space we can share ourselves and the music we believe in. Every time we play at Park Acoustics it’s a good day and a good vibe. 

Can we expect any surprises from BCUC on the 1st of December?

We’ve been working on some new music and we can not wait to sink our teeth into it. 

2019 has been a very eventful year for you guys. What has stood out the most to you guys?

b2019 has been an amazing adventure with a lot of work put into it. We got to see some of our dream gigs realised. Like Glastonury, Cape Town International Jazz Festival and Afro-Punk Brooklyn to name a few. The release of our album The Healing which features Femi Kuti and Saul Williams. Two individuals we have admired and loved their work even back when we were starting out. And to work with them?!  🤯

What can we expect from BCUC for 2020?

More work, more music. On a path to fulfill this mission that drives us. Music for the people by the people with the people. 

I’d like to thank BCUC for this interview and I wish them all of the best with their performance this weekend and their future musical adventures. If you don’t have tickets for Park Acoustics yet, get yours HERE.
