Rusike brothers at Cabaret night

THE Rusike Brothers, long a favourite musical group for Zimbabweans of all ages, will top the bill at the next Cabaret Night At Meikles, which will take place tonight.

The band will play dinner music, perform a cabaret and then p

lay dance music for guests, and will show the wealth of talent that has made them a household name in this country during their more than 25 years’ performing. Made up of five Rusike brothers, their shows have always been full-house performances and this week’s show is likely to be the same.

Backing the group will be a new mime act, called Silent Knights, who had their public performance debut at the recent Then & Now fundraising show at Reps Theatre. Made up of Matthew Trustham and Jason Linforth — two St George’s College students — the act will feature a series of mime routines in the classic style of the French founders of the genre.

Cabaret Night At Meikles is a showcase for top Zimbabwean talent and has in the past featured performers such as Rob and Ellie Osborne, the 5Star boy band, the Danzation dance group, Dave and Ellena Smith and Gill Warren.

Said Meikles Hotel food and beverage manager, Farai Chimba: “Our cabaret nights have become very popular and we try to ensure that we have on show top performers, mixing quality with innovation and fine style.”

Cabaret Night At Meikles will feature in the hotel’s Stewart Rooms at 730pm and will include dinner, cabaret and dancing with lucky prize draws. Pre-booking is essential. — Own correspondent.
