This Man definitely puts the word sound back into keys!

Sade has been singing since the age of 10 years old. She attended Promt Music studio and learnt basically everything there is to know about being a good vocalist and the music business.

Sade has a great stage presence and easily shows versatility in the genre’s she has learned over the years with a repertoire that is built for success!

Drummer Ricardo
Co-founder of Jade

I would like to say that I have never met a more passionate drummer over the years managing and working with many, he is definitely one for the records.
This talented drummer really shows his passion in every performance, with a high energy level, he is  bound to get you off your feet and tapping along if not dancing! Ricardo started playing the drums at age 6  and never looked back since, like most musicians he started at church!

He has grown in versatility, and can play almost any genre. He has performed with guys like the Band Utopia,  Karen Kortjie, Allou April, Wilmot Fredericks and a Cuban Percussion band just to mention a few.

In conclusion, this is just some of our key players above, depending on the venue of function I would say the high quality of music is very important, these guys really have class and have been doing this for a very long time. If if’s soft you want or loud, a small ensemble or large it can be done. We always strive to do things in excellence and never disappoint, I can honestly say I have never had any bad reviews, if any, we always have people asking us to come back or continue playing after a set.

I would like the opportunity, if you would give us the chance, even if it is once a month at your concert. If are happy with what you read above, please get in touch with me and we can discuss the rate and more finer details to determine whether we could come to an agreement.

I look forward to your response, you may contact me directly on the details below for further information or any booking enquiries.
