The band

Georgetown is a multi-instrumental Bluegrass Folk band from Pretoria. Formed in January 2014, the band mainly consist of 4 permanent members Michael de Villiers, Renaldo van Dyk, Rynier Prins and Tiaan Erasmus. Georgetown are mostly joined by various session musicians and perform as a 4 piece and 5 piece band.

They use a variety of musical instruments during their performance including acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, upright bass, mandolin, harmonica, clarinet, saxophone, a washboard and a 1935 suitcase, promising a unique and creative sound to contemporary and original folk music.

Who’s our crowd?

The group of people who seem to enjoy our music genre are between the ages of 21 and biltong, they’re a trendy bunch who really tends to focus on getting either hitched or drunk. Our female followers are continuously in search of something ”different” and out of the ordinary to fulfill some deeper inner emptiness and make sense of this vague perplexity we call life. The males, well they have beards.

When Georgetown was born they weren’t sure who’d be they’re crowd, but soon came to realize they mainly get phone calls from Brides, Beer festivals, Food & Craft markets and 80th Birthday parties
