Having met whilst studying Jazz & Popular music at UKZN back in 2010, the musically gifted brothers Devon & Brayden Hore (Drummer & Bassist) teamed up with talented guitarist Mthunzi Mchunu (Mo) to form 5th Season. The trio, with their shared passion for Ballads, Swing, Smooth & African jazz, as well as commercial/pop with a jazz element, have established themselves as a go-to-band in KZN, and are in high demand for Corporate functions, Weddings, Private Parties, Cocktail events and Festivals.
The Trio expanded its musical offering to include the extremely versatile vocalist Janice Joseph, also a product of UKZN. Janice’s voice complements the talents of the musicians and in short, completes 5TH SEASON (meaning an exciting and new season in music) as a band.
Playing a wide variety of well-known jazz standards and contemporary tunes, as well as proudly South African favorites, 5th Season always adds in their own unique flavour. Their debut album “Symmetry” is the result of many months of planning, and reflects the band’s diversity and heritage. It is a blend of re-arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions, and is collectively very easy listening, appealing to the more discerning music lover.
