Creating the perfect ambience through their sophisticated yet edgy musical offering, Intrique’s musical menu ranges from vibey, jazzy to classical and contemporary.  This dynamic violin and saxophone duo's wide ranging repertoire, combined with their stylish performance approach, has made them a favourite amongst corporate and wedding clients in Gauteng and beyond!

Saxophonist Rike Coetzer's classy performance has been developed over many years, performing at venues such as the Hilton Jazz bar in Abu Dhabi, being featured in shows like “Roll over Beethoven”, “Rock me Amadeus” or “Piano Boys”, and playing with bands and artists like Southern Glow, Avalanche, Mathys Roets and Scandal, as well as varioous big bands, string quartets and vocal trios.  Rike recorded a solo album “Chardas” which is available at live performances.

Violinist Kristel Birkholtz  is an accomplished and versatile violinist, proficient playing in various musical genres, from classical to jazz, Celtic to rock and funky dance to local African styles.  Career highlights include performing in the Subaru car advert in 2007, playing the lead violin role in the Barnyard Theatre productions "Beethoven Rocks Again", the “Harvest Moon” and “Rock Me Amadeus”, and guest appearances on e-TV's "Backstage", KykNet and Egoli.

As a duo these two charming ladies offer a highly entertaining and musically gratifying evening.  A variety of musical styles served up by the unique blend of saxophone and violin contributes to a special touch for any event.
