Dubbed South Africa’s Rory Gallagher, Basson Laubscher is one talented musician. Born and raised in Stellenbosch, Basson fell in love with music! At the tender age of 10 he started playing guitar and has never looked back.
During his high school career he met fellow band member Bertie Coetzee and helped form one of South Africa’s most loved bands, Zinkplaat who performed at all of South Africa's most loved festivals for over 10 years!
After the band split, Basson knew he had to pursue music further and thus The Violent Free Peace was born, with a passion for Blues Rock!
The Violent Free Peace have released 2 albums to date: With their first EP titled, Shakedown and their more recent release titled, Testify which will no doubt have you believing in a higher power of good old school boogie! This is one band you don't want to miss live!
As a first offering, Shakedown is catchy, fresh and will appeal to a wide range of ages. The EP sets a promising tone for the band and places them comfortably onto the local blues scene. - Perdeby
Basson Laubscher and the Violent Free Peace has given a new lick of paint to dirty rock ‘n roll and brought sexy back with their new album Testify. By using darkly ornate, literary- minded, self-consciously verbose blues rock ‘n roll they have exceeded expectations with this bad boy. - The Flow
Titular track ‘Shakedown’ is fast-paced, in your face rock ‘n’ roll, with a guitar solo that is impossible to sit still to. It’s definitely my favourite track on the album, with every part of the song showcasing a different facet of Basson’s many talents. From his song writing, to his prowess as a guitar player and perfect grungy vocals to pull it all together, it’s the showstopper on the album. - Texx & The City
On the menu... a choice of beef burger + chps / chicken wrap / sunshine salad (v)
