Shiraz is a four-piece cover band based in Somerset West. They cover a variety of music ranging from the 50’s to present. The two sisters, Anne Walsh & Helen Dooley along with Bob Walsh (Anne’s husband), were part of successful chart topping family group “The Dooleys” in the late 70’s to early 80’s.
They formed “Shiraz” shortly after arriving in South Africa in 1982 and met up with Terry Weyer in 1989 who participated with the group when they turned their talents to musicals for the local Playhouse Theatre where they produced several “Showstoppers” musicals and the Cape Times Awarded and newly published “Neverland”; this is particularly special to the band as Bob and Helen composed and arranged the musical score, and all four members put in many hours coaching the chorus in what proved to be their most challenging vocal arrangement to date.
Terry then officially joined Shiraz in 1995 and the band has been performing since then. Shiraz features Anne on lead vocals, Helen on Keyboards & Vocals, Terry on lead/rhythm guitar & vocals and Bob on bass guitar & vocals. The band spend hours on preparing backing tracks with drums, strings etc. which enhance their repertoire.
Shiraz have been involved in many events around Somerset West which include the legendary Showstoppers 2005, 2008 and 2010 at the Playhouse Theatre, 2010 Carols by candlelight, and the annual Nature Reserve Sunset Concert series. Shiraz have a very loyal fan base throughout the Helderberg and they never fail to ensure that their audience is well entertained.
So, the next time you are organising an event or wedding give Shiraz a call; they guarantee the highest quality entertainment.
