Sound Image Band

Location: Based in Cape Town



Sound Image Band is one of Cape Town's most popular function bands, headed by celebrated guitarist Gary Deacon.   The rest of the five-piece is made up of Cape Town's finest: Andrew Ford from VJR on keyboard, vocalists Haydn Gardner and Denay Willie, Willie van Zyl on saxes, clarinet and penny whistle, and Ivan Bell on drums.  The quintet can be joined by an additional front vocalist to form a six-piece band.

The band's extensive repertoire includes practically all styles of sophisticated music - Swing, Dixieland, Latino, Traditional, Rock & Roll and Contemporary Popular Songs from the 60 ’s to the present (see Repertoire in right tab). The group can provide quiet sophisticated background music during dinner, and change to dance format when required.

Client Feedback

everyone said how much they enjoyed interacting with the band and letting their hair down! You, Keith, China and Bev were so appreciated for your performances and artistry. People who said they NEVER danced were booming away! - Kathryn Grammer - Leon's 50th - 18 Nov - Clovelly country club

Thanks for making Leon’s 50th celebrations so much fun and so special. for Sound Image – they were absolutely brilliant.  Thank you so much for your recommendation.  The really rocked the party and everyone loved them - I was only sorry they had to go! 
Andrew Plunkett

The evening was fantastic.  The band was really great, they picked up the vibe from the Down Syndrome children and young adults and gave them such a fabulous time.  I’ve never experienced or seen a crowd  (and a band) enjoy themselves as much as these people did. Everyone was commenting on this being the best ever world congress and gala dinner – setting new standards for the next one on India in 2016

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for making our wedding reception and dancing so much fun. Our guests absolutely  had a ball and you were all fantastic!  I have never seen so many of my friends and family up dancing, it was a truly brilliant evening.  Best wishes and hope to see you again sometime in Cape Town!

Die musiek het 'n onmisbare bydrae gemaak tot die sukses van die seremonie en onthaal. Al die gaste het die klanke van Sound Image hoog aangeprys en sonder hulle sou dit nie moontlik gewees het om die fantastiese gemoedelike stemming wat daar op die onthaal vlamgevat het, te skep nie. Baie dankie vir jou puik diens. Ons sal in die toekoms nie huiwer om weer van jou dienste gebruik te maak nie.

Just a quick note to extend a big thank you to you all for the wonderful music you provided for our wedding. It will be remembered as a truly fantastic day and we couldn't have got there without your help. Everyone has raved about the music provided at the wedding, it will be remembered for a long time to come I'm sure.
Chris Mattingly, private client

Ons wil dan net amptelik vir 5 Seasons en ook vir Gary en die res van die orkes baie dankie sê vir julle uitstekende diens.  Ons gaste kon eenvoudig nie uitgepraat raak oor hoe fantasies Sound Image was nie en ons het voorwaar hope pret gehad.
